The main challenge is can Revanth Reddy bring all the Congress leaders and workers under one roof to bring back the lost glory to the party in Telangana, given the fact that a few senior leaders, aspirants of the post were not happy with Revanth's appointment as TPCC President.

To see that the internal issues will not cause any issue for the Congress party's growth, Revanth Reddy has been gathering support and meeting the senior leaders. He is meeting the senior leaders and the other aspirants of the post.

He met the leaders and invited them to come to his swearing-in ceremony as the Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee chief. While V. Hanumantha Rao, who is undergoing treatment couldn't come to the event, the remaining leaders attended the meeting.
