Former Congress MLA from Gosahamahal Mukesh Goud, who has been dilly-dallying over defecting to the Telangana Rashtra Samithi, is now neither here nor there.
The TRS leadership is understood to have shut the doors on Mukesh Goud, after getting frustrated with his indecisiveness.
Apparently, Mukesh is said to have put the condition that he would join the TRS only if he and his son Vikram Goud are given tickets this time. But the TRS has refused to entertain both father and son.
In fact, the TRS leadership has asked Danam to move to Khairatabad, hoping that the Goshamahal seat would be reserved for Mukesh.
But now, the party is considering sending Danam back to Goshamahal, paving for fielding former CLP leader P Janardhan Reddy’s daughter Vijaya Reddy from Khairatabad.
Now, Mukesh cannot make demands while continuing in the Congress. He lost his bargaining power because everybody knows he had been trying for defecting into the TRS.
It remains to be seen whether Congress leadership would forgive him and give him the Goshamahal ticket again!
