Hyderabad: Professor and Telangana Jana Samiti president Kodandaram is willing to continue its alliance with Congress for the Parliament Elections. But Kodandaram is demanding a seat for himself. He is asking for the seat of Malkajgiri or Bhuvanagiri. Malkajgiri has the highest Reddy Votes and being a Reddy, he will be at advantage. But then, Congress is not keen on leaving any seat to Kodandaram except if he agrees to contest on Congress Symbol. Congress instead is ready to give him an MLC seat. TDP, Congress, Telangana Jana Samiti, and CPI contested together in the recent Assembly Elections and got disastrous results. Telangana Jana Samiti and CPI could not even open their account. TJS contested in Eight Assembly Segments and lost Deposits in Seven. Congress clearly over-estimated the strength of Kodandaram and is now not keen on allowing him to bully the party in the name of alliances.
