TRS to join government
May 22, 2004 15:09 IST
The K Chandrasekhar Rao-led Telengana Rashtra Samithi on Saturday decided to join the Congress-led coalition government at the centre. The party is expected to get two berths in the council of ministers headed by Dr Manmohan Singh.
The party decided to join the government after an assurance from the Congress that the issue of creation of
a separate Telengana state would be looked into, TRS sources said.
While Rao is expected to get a cabinet berth, his party colleague, A Narendra, is likely to be sworn in as a minister of state, the sources said.
