Which way will former MP and former Congress heavyweight G Venkat Swamy’s son Gaddam Vivek go? This is the question tormenting the supporters and detractors alike. Vivek’s political moves assume significance as he is a big industrialist and owns V6 TV channel and Velugu newspaper, which have considerable influence in Telangana.
As of now Vivek is with the BJP. But, of late, he has been quite indifferent to BJP programmes. He has not been taking active interest in the party affairs. Those who know Vivek say that he will desert the Bharatiya Janata Party anytime soon. Sources say he is not responding to the calls from key leaders.
But the big question is – which way will he go? Will he join the Congress Party or the BRS. Vivek’s roots like in the Congress and his father was a union minister in the Congress regime. Later, he joined the BRS and left it when he was not given the party ticket. Later, he joined the BJP. He played a key role in Eatala Rajender’s victory in the Huzurabad bypoll.
Sources say that his family members are strongly rooting for the BRS and want Vivek to rejoin the party. However, several of his close camp followers and advisors argue that he should join the Congress Party. As of now, Vivek is said to be undecided. But, his friends suggest that he should make up his mind quickly and take the plunge. Otherwise, it would be too late.
