Congress MLC Farooq Hussain joins TRS

Delivering a serious jolt to the Congress party, senior leader and MLC Farooq Hussain joined the TRS. Mr. Farooq was nominated for the Council by the Congress when it was facing a lot of trouble during the separate Telangana agitation. The party was of the view that he would be emerge a leader to deal with the then Siddipet legislator and now Irrigation Minister T. Harish Rao.

It was stated that Mr. Farooq’s connections with the Congress senior leader Gulam Nabi Azad gave him the advantage of getting the party nomination for the Council. The Congress kept aside the then senior leader Md. Fareeduddin, who is now with the TRS, to satisfy Mr. Farooq.

Though he was nominated on the Congress party, Mr. Farooq allegedly preferred to work closely work with the TRS leaders and never tried to take it on.
