Former PCC Chief Ponnala Lakshmaiah has strongly denied reports of him joining the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi.

Speaking to media persons on Sunday, Ponnala said he would remain in the Congress party till his last breath. Dismissing the report published in a vernacular daily, he also held a dharna before the newspaper’s office. He alleged that the pro-TRS daily was deliberately spreading rumours to gain political benefit in the civic polls in Greater Warangal and Khammam.

Ponnala said he was a truly soldier of Congress party and there was no question of him joining the ruling TRS. (INN)
