Despite Winning, This Political Family Has Nowhere To Go

Komatireddy family is in a strange dilemma. Komatireddy Venkat Reddy is an MP now, but can achieve little as he is with the Congress. His brother Rajagopal Reddy is an MLC, but can't do much because the Congress is in such a minority in the Telangana legislative council. Though the Congress is useless for the Komatireddys, they can't leave the party because Rajagopal Reddy's wife is the party's MLC candidate.

They can't join the TRS and want to join the BJP. But, the BjP is not exactly rolling out a red carpet for them. So, they have nowhere to go. They want to launch a a regional party, but do not seem to have the guts and gall to do it. So, despite winning, they are at crossroads.

Sources close to Komatireddy family say they would stay back in the Congress only if the party gives the PCC post to anyone from their family. But, the Congress seem to be in no mood as present PCC chief Uttam Kumar Reddy too has won as an MP. So, there is no question of PCC chief's post going out of his hand for the present. Thus, the Komatireddys are all dressed up and nowhere to go.
