Senior Telangana leader Srinivas returns to Congress
Senior Telangana leader Srinivas returns to Congress

Hyderabad, March 26 : Former MP of Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) D. Srinivas on Sunday re-joined the Congress, nearly nine years after he had quit the party.

Srinivas, whose other son D. Arvind is a BJP MP from Nizamabad, reached Gandhi Bhavan, the state headquarters of Congress party, in a wheel-chair.  The former Rajya Sabha member was re-inducted into the party in the presence of senior leaders like K. Jana Reddy, Renuka Chowdary and Uttam Kumar Reddy. 

It was a homecoming for Srinivas, who was leading the Congress in undivided Andhra Pradesh when it returned to power in 2004. He twice headed Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) and also served as a minister in the Rajasekhara Reddy cabinet. 

Srinivas had switched loyalties to Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) after it formed the first government in newly carved out Telangana state in 2014. Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao had rewarded him with the post of special advisor to the government and later made him Rajya Sabha member in 2016.
