Telangana Cong to urge Rahul Gandhi to launch nation-wide ‘yatra’ from state


The Telangana unit of the Congress will request party leader Rahul Gandhi to launch the proposed nation-wide ‘yatra’ from Telangana.

Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President A. Revanth Reddy said that Rahul Gandhi would be requested to cover a distance of 100 km in Telangana under the yatra.

He was addressing an extended executive meeting of TPCC at the party’s state headquarters here.

Speaking at the Chintan Shivir of the Congress Working Committee (CWC) in Udaipur on Sunday, Rahul Gandhi had said that a nation-wide yatra will be launched on October 2 to strengthen connection with people.

The TPCC executive committee passed a unanimous resolution endorsing all the decisions taken at the Chintan Shivir. The resolution will be sent to Congress President Sonia Gandhi.

Revanth Reddy claimed that the Kisan Sangharsh Sabha addressed by Rahul Gandhi at Warangal on May 6 and the Warangal Declaration passed at the meeting have attracted national attention.

The MP said that with digital membership and Warangal Declaration, TPCC has set a model and hoped that it would score a hat-trick with Rahul Gandhi’s yatra.

He also announced that as per Rahul Gandhi’s direction, the party would take the Warangal Declaration to the people. A month-long programme titled ‘arytu racchabanda’ will be launched on May 21, the death anniversary of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.

During the campaign, the party will explain to the people what the party has promised for farmers in the declaration.

Telangana IPS officers’ body condemns Cong leader’s statement


The IPS officers Association of Telangana on Thursday strongly condemned the statement by state Congress chief A. Revanth Reddy that Director General of Police (DGP) has been asked to go on leave.

The Association also condemned the allegations that certain IAS/IPS officers, native to a particular state, are being posted to top posts in Telangana. The Association termed this as a baseless statement.

It clarified that Mahendar Reddy went on medical leave owing to injuries sustained by him at his home. In order to ensure proper healing of the hairline fracture, he was advised to take rest by the doctors and hence he proceeded on medical leave from February 18 to March 4. He will join duty after due check-up and medical advice.

The statements regarding Mahendar Reddy were made in an irresponsible manner without verification of facts and the reports of scientific diagnostic tests, it said.

“Instead of wishing him good health and speedy recovery, the said leaders have needlessly dragged the officer for the sake of publicity,” the Association said in a statement.

The IPS officers’ body said statements targeting IPS officer Anjani kumar and some IAS officers from a particular state reflects biased thinking and lack of knowledge about the Constitution of India and the provisions of All India Services.

“The All India service officers are allotted to a particular state as per All India Service Rules and are given postings by the respective state governments. The irresponsible statements made against the officers, amounts to intrusion and interference in the discharge of official duties by them. Such statements have an undesirable effect of needlessly dragging officers for the sake of self publicity,” the association said.

It is seen that some of these political functionaries are habituated in making wild and irresponsible statements with an intention to demoralise officers and police force and mislead the innocent public, it added.

The IPS Association urged these political functionaries to refrain from commenting without verifying the facts and without knowing about the provisions of the Rules as provided for in the Constitution of India.

Revanth Reddy had said on Wednesday that Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao has his roots in Bihar. He also alleged that Telangana has become slave in the hands of a group of IAS and IPS officers of Bihar origin.

Revanth Reddy, who is also an MP, alleged the Chief Minister appointed IAS and IPS officer of Bihar origin on key posts and entrusted each of them 6-8 departments to what he called loot of the state.

He alleged that the Chief Minister made Anjani Kumar the DGP by sending the incumbent DGP on leave.

Revanth back to his trademark politics with “Mana Ooru-Mana Poru”!


TPCC chief A.Revanth Reddy seems to have realised that it would be of no use if he wastes time addressing press conferences at Gandhi Bhavan or his residence in Jubilee Hills. He also realised that his attempts to pacify party seniors to get closer to them will also prove futile as party seniors continue to trouble him even after making sincere efforts for the past nine months to take seniors into confidence before taking any decisions.

Finally, Revanth decided to switch back to his trademark politics of going aggressively into the people against TRS and KCR by holding public meetings.

Revanth launched “Mana Ooru-Mana Poru” programme to address public meetings in all Assembly constituencies to highlight the failures of KCR government over the past seven years. Revanth is addressing first public meeting in Parigi on Saturday (today).

Revanth’s plan is to remain in public till 2023 December Assembly polls by holding public meetings and bring Congress to power.

Soon after Revanth became TPCC chief in June, he held a series of public meetings against TRS and BJP in the name of “Dalit Girijana Dandora” and also “Vidyarthi-Nirudyogula Jung Siren” in several districts. But he later halted them after realised that seniors were angry at him for not consulting them before holding public meetings.

Revanth tried to pacify seniors but seniors continue to trouble him under one pretext or the other and obstructing him to undertake agitation programmes against TRS. Instead of wasting time pacifying senior, Revanth decided to continue his public meetings and try to bring Congress to power on his own like YSR brought Congress to power on his own in 2004 by conducting padayatra.

Revanth continues to haunt KCR’s new Secretariat!


TPCC chief A.Revanth Reddy continues to resist the dream project of Telangana Chief Minister K.Chandrashekar Rao to build a brand new Telangana Secretariat in Hyderabad.

Revanth waged a long legal battle to stop the plans of KCR to demolish old Secretariat to construct a new one in its place at a cost of nearly Rs 1,000 crore. Due to Revanth’s case in High Court, the demolition was halted for nearly two years. Finally, the government secured High Court nod for demolition. KCR demolished old Secretariat building in July 2020 and started construction of new Secretariat in 2021. Already the works are going on at a brisk pace to complete the new Secretariat by December 2022.

Revanth also approached National Green Tribunal (NGT) two years ago against demolition of old Secretariat without obtaining environmental clearance from the Centre. The NGT directed Centre to file a counter on this issue. Revanth argued that environmental clearance is necessary as old Secretariat is located on the banks of Hussain Sagar.

But the Centre failed to file a counter even after two years. Angered at this, the Chennai bench of NGT directed Centre to file counter by March 15. It imposed Rs 10,000 penalty on officials concerned for failing to file the counter.

It warned that it will summon joint secretary of union environment ministry for next hearing if it fails to file counter by March 15.

Finally, Revanth and Komatireddy come together, share dais


Tuesday witnessed a rare constellation of the Congress leaders. Two warring leaders – TPCC chief Revanth Reddy and his biggest challenger and MP Komatireddy Venkat Reddy met for the first time after the former became the TPCC chief. Komatireddy, who refused to meet Revanth all these days, welcomed him at his residence.

This is the first time both the leaders met each other and posed for photograph. This has warmed the hearts of many Congress leaders. Revanth Reddy has staunchly opposed the appointment of Revanth Reddy and even went to the extent of the Telangana Congress affairs incharge of taking bribes from Revanth Reddy. He did not attend the swearing in ceremony of Revanth Reddy at the Gandhi Bhavan.

The coming together of these two leaders is definitely a good news for the Congress Party. Later, both the leaders were present at the ‘Congress for Farmers’ rally organised by the Congress at the Indira Bhavan. They shared the stage and praised each other. This has enthused the party cadres and workers.

Speaking on the occasion, Revanth Reddy lauded Komatireddy as a true Telanganite and added that he had resigned for the cause of Telangana. His’ was a real resignation unlike the fake resignations of the KCR family, Revanth said.

Komatireddy opens his residence doors for Revanth!


Senior Congress leader and Bhongir Lok Sabha member Komatireddy Venkat Reddy finally opened his residence doors for TPCC chief A.Revanth Reddy on Tuesday (today).

Revanth came to Komatireddy’s residence in Lotus Pond in Hyderabad and he received Revanth at his house.

Earlier, Komatireddy announced that his residence doors are closed for Revanth Reddy and Revanth should not make any attempts to meet him at his house. Komatireddy made this statement immediately after Congress high command appointed Revanth Reddy as TPCC chief in May 2021. Komatireddy was angry at Congress high command denying him TPCC chief post despite being a loyal Congress worker since 1990s and very much senior to Revanth in politics and also in Congress.

Soon after his appointment as TPCC chief, Revanth visited the residences of all Congress senior leaders and sought their support and blessings. But he could not meet Komatireddy as he refused to meet Revanth.

The visit of Revanth to Komatireddy’s residence assumed political significance in the backdrop of Komatireddy moving closer with Telangana CM KCR and TRS for the last four days. Komatireddy met KCR at Jangaon and also in Bhongir while the CM inaugurated new Integrated Collectorate Complexes. Photos of KCR and Komatireddy hugging each other went viral on social media platforms and fuelled speculations of Komatireddy joining TRS.

Against this backdrop, Revanth met Komatireddy. It is learnt that Komatireddy told Revanth that he has no plans to quit Congress or join TRS and he met KCR only because Jangaon and Bhongir fall under his Bhongir Lok Sabha constituency and attended official programmes as per protocol and there were no politics behind this.

Is Revanth’s best follower planning to leave Congress?


Till a few months ago, she was believed to be the close confidante of TPCC chief Revanth Reddy and was touted as the incharge for the North Telangana districts. She was among those who stood along with Revanth Reddy in his victory procession before swearing in as the TPCC chief. But, Mulug’s two-time Congress MLA Seethakka has suddenly fallen silent.

In fact, her visits to Hyderabad have come down and she is not seen in Gandhi Bhavan these days. She is largely confined to her constituency of Mulug. Her social media wing too has become inactive. Earlier, videos and images of Seethakka traversing through deep jungles to reach out the tribals were regularly uploaded. But, they have stopped now.

Even on the issue of arrangements for the biennial tribal fair of Medaram, Seethakka is not raising her voice. She is reportedly not raising any questions over the contract works. During the last Medaram Jatara, she was very vociferous in highlighting corruption and fund misappropriation. But, this time, she is keeping largely to herself.

The buzz is growing that she might quit the Congress and join the TRS. Her proximity with TRS leader and minister Satyavathy Rathod too is being viewed with suspicion. Insiders say that she is unhappy with the way Revanth Reddy is running the party. As of now, she has not responded to these rumours. Let’s wait and see how things pan out.

Revanth stirs up hornet’s nest by eyeing Kodangal MLA seat!


TPCC chief and Malkajgiri MP A.Revanth Reddy stirred up a hornet’s nest again in Telangana Congress.

Revanth on Tuesday visited his home Assembly constituency Kodangal from where he was elected twice as MLA on TDP ticket in 2009 and 2014 elections.

Revanth quit TDP and joined Congress before 2018 Assembly polls and contested Kondangal seat on Congress ticket. Shockingly, Revanth lost to TRS in 2018.

Later, Revanth secured Congress Lok Sabha ticket from Malkajgiri constituency and surprised everyone by defeating TRS candidate Marri Rajashekar Reddy, the son-in-law of TRS minister Ch Malla Reddy, in 2019 Lok Sabha polls.

In unexpected developments, Revanth became TPCC chief in 2021.

In Congress, everything is decided by party high command. Whether one has to contest the Assembly poll or Lok Sabha polls, the party high command will take a decision.

But on Tuesday during his visit to Kodangal, Revanth announced on his own that he will contest from Kodangal Assembly seat again in 2023 Assembly polls.

This created a flutter in Congress circles and fuelled speculations over why Revanth made such a statement.

Congress leaders feel that Revanth made this statement to send a strong message across that he is in the race for Telangana CM’s post if Congress comes to power in 2023 and for that reason he has decided to contest Assembly polls in 2023.

It remains to be seen how Congress high command and Revanth critics in TPCC would respond to Revanth’s statement.

Revanth says he would “occupy” Telangana secretariat after KCR


Why was the secretariat demolished? Ask Telangana PCC chief Revanth Reddy. He says the new secretariat is being built only for him and that he would be the next CM of Telangana. Till now, he has been saying that the CM would be decided by the party high command in case the Congress manages to get a majority. But, now he says he would become the next CM.

Revanth said this in an informal chitchat with the mediapersons. Thanks to Covid situation, press conferences and media addresses have become a thing of past. He is occasionally holding free-wheeling chitchat with mediapersons. During one such chitchats he said this.

Revanth said that KTR can never occupy the CM’s seat. He said that no CM’s son has so far become a CM in Hyderabad city. He said Jagan became CM in Amaravati not in Hyderabad. He said that the new secretariat too will not see KTR as the CM, He said KTR can never become the CM. He reminded that even when everything was fixed for KTR’s appointment, he (Revanth) had categorically said that KTR can never become the CM of the state.

Revanth claimed that the winds were blowing in favour of the Congress and that the party would come back to power if and when the next elections are held in Telangana. He said that he would occupy the secretariat after the elections.

Has TPCC desciplinary committee bitten off more than it can chew?


What if a Disciplinary Committee itself breaks the discipline? That is the strange predicament that he Congress Party is facing in Telangana. The TPCC disciplinary committee is now in the dock for overstepping its brief. The Telangana Congress is now deeply divided with one group supporting it and another slamming it.

After Revanth Reddy’s rival and TPCC working president Turpu Jagga Reddy’s letter to AICC chief Sonia Gandhi complaining against Revanth’s ways became public, the TPCC disciplinary committee has taken a serious view of it. Committee’s chief and former minister G Chinna Reddy has announced that Jaggareddy would be called before the disciplinary committee to explain the leakage of the letter.

Now questions are being asked as to why Chinna Reddy revealed to the media the action that would be taken against Jagga Reddy. This, many argue, is a violation of the party’s code of conduct. Jagga Reddy said that Chinna Reddy is working at the behest of Revanth Reddy. He said that since the committee works under the PCC chief, the PCC chief has used Chinna Reddy to attack him.

The Revanth detractors point out that during the tenure of Kodanda Reddy and Marri Sasidhar Reddy, the disciplinary committee was never involved in any controversy. They were truly neutral and kept the party interests above all, they point out. It remains to be seen how the party’s high command with bring reconciliation among all the stakeholders.

T’gana Cong chief demands case against KTR for rally


Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president A. Revanth Reddy on Friday urged the Director General of Police (DGP) to book a case under the Disaster Management Act against state minister K.T. Rama Rao for organising a rally in Nalgonda.

Despite the ban on public meetings and rallies, a massive rally was organised in Nalgonda when state minister for industry and information technology Rama Rao visited the town to lay the foundation stone for IT Hub and take part in other programmes.

Revanth Reddy, who was placed under house arrest in Hyderabad to stop him from attending a protest programme at Bhupalapally, alleged that he was illegally detained citing Disaster Management Act and was stopped from visiting farmers while Rama Rao was allowed to take out a rally in Nalgonda.

Revanth Reddy, who is also a Member of Parliament, tweeted that this exposed the dual standards of Telangana police. He demanded DGP M. Mahender Reddy to immediately book a case under the same Act against Rama Rao.

KTR, as Rama Rao is popularly known, is son of Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao and working president of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS).

Hundreds of TRS workers took out a huge rally to welcome KTR in Nalgonda. The party workers carrying party flags were riding two-wheelers and many of them were seen without masks.

Netizens criticised the ruling party for blatant violation of all Covid-19 regulations and the ban on rallies and public meetings. They questioned why the political parties were exempted when the police were imposing a penalty of Rs 1,000 on common man for not wearing face mask.

The state government had last week issued an order banning all rallies and public meetings till January 2 in view of the threat from Omicron, the new variant of Covid-19.

The DGP had on Thursday directed the police commissioners and district superintendents of police to strictly enforce the ban.

He had also asked the officers to create awareness among the people to follow the guidelines issued by the government like compulsory wearing of masks and maintaining social distance.

TPCC chief Revanth Reddy placed under house arrest


Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president A. Revanth Reddy was placed under house arrest here on Friday to prevent him from leaving for Bhupalapally to participate in “Rachabanda” programme.

Policemen were deployed at the Congress leader’s house in Jubilee Hills as he was preparing to leave for interacting with farmers facing problems due to their paddy not being procured by the state government.

As part of the state-wide programme to highlight the problems of farmers, the opposition party planned to organise “Rachanbanda” in Bhupalapally on Friday evening. Police say that there is no permission for the programme.

Revanth Reddy took to Twitter to slam the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government. He posted a video of the policemen deployed around his house restricting his movements.

“Telangana under dictator rulea Police personnel deployed again at my house restricting from visiting farmers. Is this Afghanistan or North Koreaa?,” he asked.

Through another tweet, the TPCC president wondered if consoling the farmers was a crime. He criticised Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao saying he was spending hours at the houses of ministers and MLAs to attend marriages or to consoling them but he has no time for paddy and chilli farmers who are suffering.

Meanwhile, Congress party’s national spokesperson Pawan Khera also took to Twitter asking the chief minister why he was so afraid. “You really think you can stop Revanth Reddy and Congress from raising their voice for farmers,” he asked.

This was the second time this week that Revanth Reddy was prevented from participating in Rachabanda. On December 27, he was arrested here on Monday as he was leaving for Erravalli village to lead a protest at the farmhouse of the chief minister.

Revanth Reddy had earlier released photographs of paddy cultivated at the chief minister’s farmhouse. “On one hand the chief minister is saying that the government will not procure paddy from farmers while on the other he has taken up paddy cultivation over 150 acres at his farmhouse,” the Congress leader had said.

Revanth Reddy proposes, but spokespersons dispose


After taking over as the Telangana PCC chief, Revanth Reddy has filled the party with dynamism and activism. But one section of the party still feels that despite the change of guard, they should remain in the old mould. They haven’t changed and appear averse to change. They are the party’s spokesperson.

Soon after taking over, Revath has appointed over a dozen spokespersons for the party in Telangana. He had even divided them into two categories – seniors and juniors. He chose the most articulate, effective and argumentative of them and hoped that they would voice the Congress Party’s stand on various issues. He believed they would remain effective carriers of the party’s ideology.

However, most of these spokespersons are rarely acting as the party’s mouthpieces. Some haven’t spoken a word so far. Some are keeping away from the party’s work and are said to be focusing on other things. Some are occasionally seen in the Gandhi Bhavan but were never seen addressing the media. In fact, addressing the media has become the responsibility of the PCC chief and CLP leader Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka.

Only two leaders – Addanki Dayakar and Tejawat Bellaiah Naik – are seen on TV screens. Another spokesperson Harivardhan Reddy is not regular. He occasionally sparkles in the media outings. Sircilla Rajaiah and Nerella Sarada are yet to take up their new job seriously. Another spokesperson Riaz is seen only during the party meetings. Kailash of Munugodu and Ravali too are yet to take up their jobs.

This woman Cong leader challenging Revanth’s supremacy!


TPCC chief Revanth Reddy has been facing several problems from male leaders in Congress ever since Congress high command appointed him to lead the party in Telangana in June this year.

However, Revanth overcame all these problems by meeting Congress seniors one after the other and securing their support to bring Congress to power in Telangana in 2023 Assembly polls.

But now a woman Congress leader is creating troubles for Revanth in Congress.

She is none other than Telangana Mahila Congress president Sunitha Rao.

She is demanding same protocol to her which is being extended to Revanth Reddy as TPCC chief.

She wants Revanth to take her permission to involve any woman leader in Congress in TPCC activities.

She wants Revanth to invite her for all Congress meetings in Gandhi Bhavan and provide her a seat besides TPCC chief.

She also wants TPCC to bear Rs 5 lakh expenditure every month to conduct Mahila Congress programmes.

She is suspending women leaders from Congress who are not following her instructions.

All these are creating problems for Revanth in Congress.

Revanth reportedly complained against Sunitha Rao to party high command requesting them to control her and if not party will suffer badly.

TRS hunts for Revanth’s ‘coverts’ in party?


The TRS leadership has virtually launched a hunt to trace leaders in party who are working as ‘coverts’ to TPCC chief A.Revanth Reddy.

The party leadership is worried over key information from TRS being ‘leaked’ to Revanth Reddy in advance.

Revanth on Monday (yesterday) disclosed to media that the protests by TRS MPs in Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha since Monday last was only a ‘drama’ and this drama will end on Tuesday (today) as TRS has decided to boycott the Parliament session from Tuesday.

Revanth said the BJP national leadership has directed TRS chief and Telangana CM KCR to stop this drama in Parliament immediately and KCR agreed.

True to Revanth’s prediction, TRS MPs announced to boycott Parliament session on Tuesday (today).

But TRS leadership is shocked over who leaked this information to Revanth Reddy, 24 hours in advance.

This is because the decision to boycott the Parliament session was taken by KCR on Monday (yesterday) and communicated to TRS MPs in Delhi on Monday. They were asked to keep this information secret and disclose it only when they announce boycotting the session in Rajya Sabha and Lok Sabha on Tuesday.

The TRS leadership is unable to understand who leaked this confidential information to Revanth a day in advance.

Is it TRS MPs in Delhi or someone from Pragathi Bhavan, who are in inner circles of KCR?

The party leadership is trying to find out Revanth’s coverts in TRS and initiate strict action against them before more such confidential information gets leaked and troubles TRS in future.

Why is Revanth Reddy happy at Congress defeat in Huzurabad?


Why is Revanth Reddy confident despite getting just about 2000 votes in Huzurabad? The performance of the Congress in Huzurabad bypoll is its worst ever performance. In fact, it got less votes in Huzurabad than in Badvel where the Congress is all but dead. Yet, Revanth is smiling and is looking confident.

Political pundits feel that he may have kept party affairs incharge Manickam Tagore and the Congress High Command in the loop about his decision to secretly help Eatala Rajender. He must have secured the party nod for his strategy to support Eatala. He must have sold the idea that the invincibility of the TRS must be shattered even if it meant supporting Eatala.

Sources also say that he has convinced the party high command that Eatala was a ripe apple ready to fall into the lap of the Congress Party sooner than later. Revanth feels that Revanth and the BJP are ideologically and temperamentally incompatible and it would only be a matter of time when Eatala would turn against the BJP. In that event, Congress would be his last recourse, feels Revanth. So, in the long run, supporting Eatala could become an investment of political capital. Revanth is also of the opinion that Huzurabad victory is a victory of Eatala and not that of the BJP.

Insiders say that Revanth has deliberately put up a weak candidate in Huzurabad and launched only token campaign very late. His plan is to help Eatala today to reap benefits later. In fact, from the beginning Revanth had said that the Congress had never won Huzurabad since 1983 and that one should not expect wonders this time too.

Revanth’s rivals in Cong enjoy bypoll result!


Congress firebrand leader A.Revanth Reddy faced first Assembly election in the form of Huzurabad by poll after becoming TPCC chief in June this year.

No one expected Congress to retain even deposit in this by poll as it has turned out to be a war between KCR and Etala Rajender and not even a war between TRS and BJP.

Even then Congress was expected to poll at least 10,000 votes in by poll as it was polled 60,000 votes in 2018 Assembly polls.

But shockingly Congress got just 1,300 votes after 9 rounds of counting out of total 22 rounds on Tuesday (today).

BJP polled 35,000 votes and TRS polled 30,000 votes after 9 rounds.

Revanth’s rivals in Telangana Congress are holding Revanth responsible for party’s miserable performance.

Bhongir MP Komatireddy Venkat Reddy who is strongly opposing Revanth as TPCC chief since beginning has decided to complain against Revanth to high command.

Revanth’s rivals want high command to replace Revanth as TPCC chief if it wants to win 2023 Assembly polls.

BJP’s Etela Rajender is heading for victory in by poll as he was leading by over 5,000 votes over TRS after 10 rounds of counting.

Why Sharmila is targeting Revanth more than TRS?


YSRTP chief YS Sharmila launched a marathon 4,000 kilometre long ‘padayatra’ in Telangana on Wednesday (today) with an aim to bring back “Rajanna Rajyam” in Telangana.

She launched her padayatra from Chevella in Rangareddy district in line with the ‘Chevella sentiment’ followed by her father YSR, who also launched padayatra in 2002 and become CM of Undivided AP in 2004.

Sharmila addressed a huge gathering at Chevella on the occasion. However, her speech created a buzz in political circles as she targeted TPCC chief A.Revanth Reddy more than ruling TRS.

She termed Revanth as a ‘thief’ who was caught ‘red handed’ in ‘cash for vote’ scam. She said Revanth’s political life is in the hands of KCR and KCR can finish Revanth politically anytime he wants.

Sharmila also termed Revanth as a ‘rented TPCC chief’ of Congress who was rented out by TDP to Congress.

Why Sharmila targeted Revanth who is neither in the ruling party nor holding any position in the Telangana government? is the question being debated in political circles.

Speculations are rife that Sharmila is very angry at Revanth as he dashed all her plans to get disgruntled Reddy leaders and YSR supporters in Telangana Congress into her party YSRTP.

Sharmila expected many Reddy Congress leaders would join YSRTP on ‘caste equations’ as Telangana Congress was in coma when she launched YSRTP.

Exactly at the same time, Revanth became TPCC chief and brought new energy to Congress. With this, several Reddy Congress leaders or other leaders from other castes in Congress, who had plans to quit the sinking Congress in Telangana, dropped their plans believing in Revanth’s leadership and charisma.

With this, Sharmila could not get even a single noted leader from Telangana Congress into YSRCP. Even the only noted Telangana Congress woman leader Indira Shobhan who joined YSRTP from Congress also quit YSRTP after Revanth became TPCC chief.

All these made Sharmila develop severe anger against Revanth which came out when she launched padayatra.

Revanth is also taking YSRTP very lightly and frequently terming Sharmila’s party as an “NGO organisation” and not a political party whenever media persons are raising questions in Revanth Reddy’s press meets on Sharmila.

Revanth is saying that he will respond only on political parties and not NGOs like YSRTP. This is also cited as the reason for Sharmila’s anger on Revanth.

Revanth meets DS: Will BJP MP’s father rejoin Congress Party?


Is veteran politician D Srinivas planning to join the Congress Party? Likely, say political watchers. The Thursday meeting between PCC chief Revanth Reddy and D Srinivas has fuelled rumours of D Srinivas’s probable Ghar Vapsi. In fact, Revanth personally invited DS to come back to the Congress Party

DS is currently a Rajya Sabha member from the TRS. However, his relations with the TRS are strained. The TRS has not been inviting him to the party meets and he too is keeping a distance from the party. His son Sanjay is already in the Congress Party. DS was a two-time PCC chief of the undivided AP and was a minister during YSR’s tenure. He joined the TRS in 2014 and has been a Rajya Sabha MP. He has been estranged from the Congress for the past several years.

If he joins the Congress, it would be a huge political statement. DS’s son D Aravind is a BJP MP from Nizamabad. He defeated KCR’s daughter Kalwakuntla Kavitha in 2019 general elections. This could affect Aravind’s prospects in 2024 elections.

According to Congress sources, DS responded positively to Revanth Reddy’s request. This attempt is being seen as part of Revanth Reddy’s efforts to bring all ex-Congressmen back into the party. He has met several such leaders who had recently left the party. If all goes well, DS could resign from the Rajya Sabha and the TRS during the Sankranthi season and then join the Congress.

Revanth stumps TRS with long-term plans!

TPCC chief A.Revanth Reddy continues to give sleepless nights to TRS top brass ever since he took over reigns of Congress in Telangana.

TRS leadership is not able to assess the clever political moves of Revanth.

TRS strongly believed that Revanth will field a strong candidate like Konda Surekha in Huzurabad by poll scheduled to be held on October 30.

TRS hoped that this will split anti-TRS votes between Congress and BJP and make TRS victory easier in Telangana.

But Revanth gave a twist by fielding an unknown face Venkat Balmoor in Huzurabad after realizing that Congress has no chance to win this election in this big battle between KCR and Etela Rajender.

Revanth’s strategy is that TRS should not benefit due to vote split between Congress and BJP and he wants TRS to lose at any cost and he doesn’t mind even if BJP wins in this election.

Revanth feels that if TRS loses Huzurabad, KCR will weaken and lose his grip on TRS and TRS will collapse by 2023 Assembly polls.

It will benefit Congress in the long run although Congress suffers temporary setback in Huzurabad now by fielding a weak candidate like Venkat.
