"This is Sonia Gandhi's first visit to Telangana after the formation of the state in June 2014. Lok Sabha member Konda Vishweshwar Reddy, who quit the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) citing 'disappointment' at various levels, may formally join the Congress at the Medchal meeting in the presence of Rahul and Sonia Gandhi," AICC
in-charge of Telangana, RC Khuntia had earlier said.
The Congress has forged a 'grand alliance' with the Telegu Desam Party (TDP), Telangana Jana Samithi (TJS) and CPI to take on the TRS in the 7 December elections to the 119-member assembly.
The party is contesting in 94 seats, leaving the rest to its all allies.
