Kiran Kumar Reddy to rejoin Congress party?


Is ex Chief minister of Andhra Pradesh, Kiran Kumar Reddy all set to rejoin Congress party? Is he currently in discussions with Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi regarding the same? Will he be offered AICC post? This is the debate going on in political circles currently.

Kiran Kumar Reddy became CM for then united state Andhra Pradesh amidst high political uncertainty in the state. After Jagan Reddy’s rebellion against high-command of ruling Congress party, the bigwigs at 10 Janpath decided to give the high post to Kiran who also hail from Rayalaseema region like Jagan and who also belong to Reddy community like Jagan. Though, Kiran’s ruling did not make any lasting impression on people, it is also to be noted that there were no major corruption allegations or scams during his period. Kiran Kumar Reddy surprised people of Seemandhra region and shocked Congress high command when he openly defied the decision of state bifurcation. Later he founded Jai Samaikyandhra party, that ended up as a disaster in 2014 elections.

Post elections, there have been rumors that he will be joining BJP and he will be given Rajya Sabha seat. But that couldn’t materialize. If grapevine reports are to be believed, it was huge expectations of Kiran Kumar Reddy that kept BJP away from him. Seems he was asked to join theBJP party unconditionally like Kanna, Purandhareswari and other leaders. Later, there were also rumors that he will join Jana Sena party and he will be no.2 in that party. But there was no confirmation on that from either parties. But lately, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi started analyzing the debacle of Congress party despite giving statehood to Telangana. They seem to have understood that what Kiran Kumar Reddy predicted was true – that Congress will lose in both states if Telangana is granted.

As per inside sources, he is being offered AICC post if he rejoins Congress. We have to wait and see how Kiran’s political career takes a turn.
