Lack of as powerful leader as that of YS Rajasekhar Reddy is the major reason behind the downfall of the Congress Party in Telangana. This is why the National Party failed to capitalize the formation of statehood under UPA Rule.

Danam Nagender's exit from Congress is a huge blow particularly in the GHMC region. This Senior Leader refrained from personal remarks on anyone while addressing the press after his resignation. He, however, maintained TPCC Chief Uttam Kumar Reddy was trying his best to bring back the lost glory but many leaders within the party were creating hurdles. 'Congress lacks a leader of YSR's stature. YSR isn't someone who expects from Party, instead he would offer something to the Party. Nobody can protect Congress Party like YSR. He used to give me a lot of freedom and take my opinions into confidence. There is no match to YSR in the Congress party. Those who safeguard the party's reputation are neglected and jump jilanis were paved red carpet. I had informed all those Leaders who were supportive of Me about my decision,' he said.

Seems like, Danam Nagender used Today's Press Meet as a show of strength. 'See, How many Activists has come here. Injustice happened to them but they are worried about injustice happened to Me. I quit Congress to safeguard my self respect. Congress will have no future if weaker sections are ignored,' he warned.
