In a sign that could spell trouble for Mahakutami, comprising Congress, TDP, TJS and CPI, the Telangana Congress Election Coordination Committee which met here on Tuesday saw some of its members demanding vociferously that the Congress should contest at least 100 assembly seats and leave only 19 segments for its ‘grand alliance’ partners.
Telangana Jana Samithi (TJS) is demanding 20 seats and CPI 8 seats. TJS wants to complete the seat adjustments at the earliest.
The TPCC Election Committee held a meeting at Golconda resorts in Hyderabad on Tuesday. Most of the leaders from the committee expressed that the Congress should be in the race in 100 constituencies at least and they felt that 19 seats were more than enough for the allied parties.
The majority of the Congress leaders also said that their own party would be in trouble, if they gave more seats to the alliance parties.
The seat adjustments were smooth among the Congress and Telugu Desam, but the truck with TJS is still in a confused state as it was demanding 20 seats at least.
