The speculation was triggered by his meeting with TRS working president KT Ramarao and MP-sister Kavita at the wedding ceremony of the daughter of Hyderabad MP and MIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi. His hobnobbing with TRS leaders and attending the functions of the ruling party functionaries is seen as an indication of his mood to quit Congress and join TRS.
