Hyderabad: Amid suspense whether TRS would merge with Congress or forge an alliance, a crucial meeting of the regional party would be held on Monday to take a call on the issue.

The joint meeting of TRS politburo, MLAs and state executive would be held at the party office to deliberate on the political strategy for the future.

The meeting comes against the backdrop of the ties between the two parties running into rough weather with the TRS taking exception to the Congress "poaching" on its leaders.

TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao had announced that he would be willing to merge his party with Congress if the latter accepted the separate Telangana demand. He had also called on Congress president Sonia Gandhi, along with his family, to thank her for the passage of the Telangana Bill in Parliament.

However, the strain in the ties came with TRS MLA G Aravind Reddy and its expelled MP Vijayashanti joining the national party last week.
