Congress in Telangana Saturday said it planned to meet the Governor E S L Narasimhan over the ruling TRS allegedly encouraging defections of its MLAs and that it would also stage agitations over the issue.
The party said it plans to meet the Governor on March 18.
The party would tour the state over the alleged defections and meet leaders of various political parties in the country, he said.
The Congress' campaign against the alleged defections came following the decision of six party MLAs to leave the party and join the ruling TRS.
Speculation is rife that some more Congress MLAs may switch sides.
The defections are against the principles of democracy, Vikramarka said.
"The oath taken as Chief Minister to rule as per the Constitution has been given a go by," he told reporters on Saturday.
Congress had earlier alleged that the TRS was undermining democracy by encouraging defection of its MLAs.
The TRS, however, has referred to instances of public representatives joining the Congress and asked if that too was a "purchase".
