They were loyal to Congress party like anything and even during NTR wave they made sure Congress is not wiped off forever but for the first time they felt cheated by Congress leadership in a miserable manner. Now KCR is being admired like anything for bringing a separate state, while others hold responsible to plant hatred and separatism.
And Congress which was banking on his support is now stunned. It was a public fact that Congress bulldozed its way to bifurcate Telangana out of Andhra Pradesh. And this was only due to an understanding KCR will merge his TRS into Congress and they can rule in Telangana for five years if not centre.
But by sending strong feelers that he is not willing to merge, sources say Congress leadership is literally puzzled. Meanwhile Seemandhra Congress leaders are very happy that Sonia Gandhi deserves this treatment. They are of the opinion that just trusting him, Sonia played fire with Telugus and now one section of Telugu people she propped up from 2009 are going to teach her an unforgettable lesson.
