He is one of the senior most leaders of the Congress and thinks he is a perfect candidate to become Telangana's next Chief Minister. But, this very leader feels very upset at the party high command ignoring him. He wanted to be in the Congress Working Committee, but the party high command did not give him what he wanted. Instead, he was asked to be the AICC spokesperson. No wonder, this man is deeply upset.
Any guess who we are talking about? It's veteran Congressman S Jaipal Reddy. Jaipal Reddy is now sulking but can't do much about it. Why did the High Command not take him into the CWC? One strong guess is that DK Aruna, also from Mahaboobnagar, has complained to Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi, that he is hitting the prospects of the party by getting people of little use into the party. She is upset that he had brought in people like Revanth Reddy and Nagam Janardhana Reddy into the party. Jaipal Reddy feels that Aruna has marred his chances. He is of the strong opinion that it is because of her complaints that he could not get the CWC membership. Jaipal Reddy is still unable to understand why the High Command is unhappy with him.
It may be recalled that not one Telugu politician was included in the CWC during the latest rejig. Many political watchers felt that Jaipal Reddy would be taken into the CWC.
