Hyderabad: One more BRS MLA has joined the Congress. On Friday, BRS MLA from Chevella, Kale Yadaiah joined Congress in the presence of the chief minister, A Revanth Reddy in Delhi. Yadaiah is the second MLA from the greater Hyderabad region to join Congress.

BRS could bag a good number of seats in the Greater Hyderabad region in last year's assembly polls, in which Congress emerged victorious. Of the total 39 assembly seats BRS could win, 16 came from Greater Hyderabad region.

Yadaiah is the sixth BRS MLA to join Congress after last year's debacle of the Pink Party in assembly polls. Until now, Danam Nagender, Tallam Vrnkat Rao, Kadiyam Srihari, Pocharam Srinivas Reddy, Dr M Sanjay Kumar left BRS and joined Congress.

In the assembly segments that come under Greater Hyderabad region, it was a near sweep for BRS in the last year assembly elections which was also their saving grace.

Of the total 25 assembly segments that come under Greater Hyderabad region, BRS with 38.97 per cent votes, won 16, BJP and Congress each got one respectively in the last year polls.

AIMIM retained its traditional seven seats in this region from the Old City region that came under the Hyderabad Lok Sabha segment.
