Are Komatireddys leaving the Congress to join BJP?
Are the Komatireddy Brothers - Komatireddy Venkat Reddy and Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy - planning to join the BJP? The duo is sending enough signals about their intention to leave the Congress Party. Several of their actions and comments are giving rise to doubts in the minds of the Congress Party about their plans.

A day before the counting of votes for the five state assembly elections, Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy met with former MP and key BJP leader Gaddam Vivek. This is being seen as a prelude to their joining the BJP. Recently, Komatireddy Venkat Reddy sought and got an appointment with PM Modi. The interesting part is that the PMO sent a confirmation within half-hour of seeking an appointment.

Sources say the PM giving an appointment to Komatireddy is an indication that something is cooking between the BJP and the Komatireddys. Almost at the same time, Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy said in CLP office that he would fight KCR tooth and nail and would wage an incessant battle even if it means joining a new party. He said he would resign his post first and then join some other party.

All these are being seen as indications that Komatireddys are all set to join the BJP. The brothers are strong leaders in Nalgonda districts. Venkat Reddy is the MP of Nalgonda, while Rajagopal Reddy is an MLA in the Telangana assembly. If the Komatireddy duo leaves, the party will become almost rudderless in Nalgonda district.
