The Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) suffered another jolt with six of its Members of Legislative Council (MLCs) joining the Congress late on Thursday night.

The six BRS MLCs include Bhanu Prasad, Baswaraj Saraiah, Sandeep Vittal, MS Prabhakar, Yegge Mallesham and Boggarapu Dayanand.

They were formally welcomed into the party by Chief Minister A Revanth Reddy in the presence of AICC Telangana incharge Deepadas Munshi at around 1 am on Friday.

All the BRS MLCs met at a hotel around 11.30 pm and then soon after the Chief Minister landed in the city from New Delhi, they headed to his residence in Jubilee Hills. Revenue Minister Ponguleti Srinivas Reddy and other Congress leaders welcomed them and within minutes their formal entry into the Congress was completed.
