Reddys Weaken Congress, KCR Takes Advantage!

Reddys Weaken Congress, KCR Takes Advantage!

Congress party is facing difficult situation in Telangana. Growing Reddy domination in the party did not go well in other communities particularly BCs - Backward Classes in new state. As a result, the active participation of BC, SC and Minority leaders in party programmes diminished in the recent times.

The BC community strongly objected giving two key posts - Telangana Congress President and CLP leader posts to Reddy community. While Uttam Kumar Reddy and Jana Reddy hold the two key posts, majority of the district party President posts and Assembly constituency incharge posts were given to Reddy community only.

Barring Reddy community, all other communities are unhappy in Congress for getting a raw deal in party posts, leaders said to contain Reddy influence in the party, the BC Leaders are united and holding series of meetings to strengthen their leadership.  

The other side, TRS Chief K Chandrasekhar Rao began efforts to lure senior most leaders like Ponnala Laxmaiah, V Hanumantha Rao, Anjan Kumar Yadav and SC leaders - Damodar Raja Narasimha and J Geeta Reddy into his hold.

KCR already succeeded in poaching senior most BC leaders like D Srinivas etc after the formation of Telangana. Taking serious note of declining their role in Congress, the BC Leaders organised a meeting on July 12 where the leaders will finalize their future plan to strengthen their leadership.
