Blaming its alliance partner Telugu Desam Party for the party's disastrous show in the recent elections in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana Rashtra Samiti president and former Union minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Monday accused the TDP of 'non-cooperation'.
"The TDP has ditched us. It has not co-operated with us at all in all the places," Rao alleged at a press conference at the end of the TRS Legislature Party meeting in Hyderabad on Monday.
"We lost at least 10 Assembly and some Lok Sabha seats only because of TDPs non-cooperation. The TDP sabotaged our chances at these places," he said.
Even other partners of the Grand Alliance did not fully co-operated with us, he added.
Maintaining that theirs was a movement-driven party rather than a conventional political party, Chandrasekhar Rao said they would re-launch their movement till the goal - statehood for Telangana was achieved.
"Despite the electoral setback, we shall take our struggle forward in a novel fashion and fight for the cause till our last breath," the TRS chief asserted.
