Losing Dalit leader and one of the most senior leaders in TDP, Kadiyam Srihari is the biggest blow for Telugu Desam Party in the previous term. Now a shock of similar magnitude is awaiting them according to the rumours in political circles. Senior TDP leader in Khammam, Tummala Nageswara Rao is reportedly looking at Telangana Rashtra Samiti. It is known that TDP lost its hold in Khammam district due to the group fights between Nama and Tummala.

As a result both Nama and Tummala lost the elections. TRS is trying in all possible ways to rope Tummala in to their party even before the elections. After winning the elections, they reported gave very tempting offers to Tummala. There are reports from Khammam that Tummala is boarding car. If it happens, more or less things will be closed for TDP in Telangana except Hyderabad.
