In an embarrassing moment for Malkajgiri MP Malla Reddy, the long time TDP leader who defected to the ruling TRS in Telangana seemed to have forgotten that he changed his party.

"Jai Telugu Desam," the MP unintentionally shouted at the end of his speech during an event at the Malla Reddy Engineering College at Medchal. 

Immediately realising his mistake, even as those on the dias and those in the crowd let out a laugh, the MP added, "Jai Telangana! Jai KCR! Jai Kavitha!"

The crowd continued hooting even after that, as Malla Reddy had made the error while Telangana MP and Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao's daughter, Kavitha Rao, was present on stage.

However, speaking later at the event, Kavitha seemingly made light of Reddy's slip of the tongue. 

"It seems that Malla Reddy anna is unable to stop waving his older yellow (TDP's colour) flag," she remarked with a smile. 

"However, I hope that everyone soon shifts to the pink (TRS' colour) flag soon, just like him," she added.

Malla Reddy, who represents Malkajgiri Lok Sabha constituency in Hyderabad, joined the TRS in the presence of party president and CM, KCR, in June last year.
