Firebrand politician Revanth Reddy is finding himself in a piquant spot. He is facing a tragic-comic situation. Till a few days, there was widespread buzz that he would be given the reins of the PCC in Telangana. His proximity to Rahul Gandhi added to his image. But, suddenly he is finding himself on a sticky wicket. Just one statement of his has undone what all has been done all these days.  All the Congress leaders have now ranged against him and are baying for blood. They have in voice opposed Revanth Reddy's choice of Congress candidate for Huzurnagar constituency. Not just that, they have even questioned his locus standi on the issue of deciding who should be the party candidate in Huzurnagar.

Interestingly, the same happened to Revanth in the TDP. He had worked hard to take the top seat in the TDP. He organised Rythu Bharosa Yatras in all districts of telangana and drew great response from the general public. Situation was such that people waited for hours to catch a glimpse of Revanth. But, all other TDP leaders ganged up against him and forced him to leave the party. In the Congress too, the same story is repeating. The situation is more alarming in the Congress. The top leaders have already ganged up against him and are slamming his moves. He now finds himself totally isolated.

Leaders like Uttam Kumar Reddy, Jana Reddy and Komatireddy Venkat Reddy have opened up against him and have criticised his decision to announce the name of Chamala Kiran Kumar Reddy as the candidate for Huzurnagar constituency.  How will Revanth Reddy brave these challenges ? Or will leave the Congress like he left the TDP? If so, which party would he join next?
