Welcoming the former minister for Minority Welfare Mr. Muhammad Fareeduddin who belongs to Medak district and other leaders in the TRS, Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao hoped that their entry in the party would strengthen the party in the district. Besides Muhammad Fareeduddin, former district president of Congress Swami Charan and former BJP MLA Narendranath and others joined TRS after resigning from their respective parties.
Fareeduddin was formally welcomed into TRS by Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Reddy by offering him a pink khandwa (shoulder cloth).
The other leaders who joined TRS along with Fareeduddin are Krishna Reddy, ex-Chairman market company Hyderabad Chinna Reddy, ex-chairman Urdu Academy Syed Shah Noorul Haq Quadri, Congress minority leaders Quader Shareef, Raza Husain Azad, M A Quddoos, Habeeb Zainul Abideen Abid, Najamuddin Qazi, Nawab Ali Khan, MM Baig, Shahed Peeran, Hamed Abdul Quader, Muhammad Javeed Transport and others.
The development came just a fortnight before the Medak Lok Sabha by elections.
