In 2014 Telangana Legislative Assembly elections, TRS had 34% vote share and won 63 seats, while Congress had 25% vote share and won 21 seats. Out of these 21 Congressmen, TRS poached 7 MLAs who shifted from Congress to TRS. In the ongoing budget session, all the remaining Congress MLAs were either expelled or suspended on the very first day of the session. This is killing democracy one step at a time.
