Has TRS working president KTR moved in to address the internal problems in the TRS in Khammam district? Has the party leadership gone into a high alert over reports of former MP Ponguleti Srinivasa Reddy's plans to leave the party? It appears so.

The Khammam TRS unit is in a very bad shape due to the internal differences and groupism. Recently, former MP Ponguleii raised a banner of revolt when he made some very caustic comments. These comments are being seen as a direct attack on three senior leaders – Puvvada Ajay, Tummala Nageshwara Rao and Nama Nageshwara Rao. There was also news that Ponguleti is in touch with the BJP leaders. His brother Ponguleti Sudhakar Reddy is already in the BJP.

Alarmed by these development, KTR reportedly asked all important leaders from Khammam district to come to Hyderabad for a key meeting. The meeting is aimed at discussing differences among the leaders. Meanwhile, Ponguleti too has mellowed down a bit and said that there was no question of his joining the BJP. The meeting, it is expected, is likely to resolve the differences between the leaders.
