Despite having a glorious history behind it, the grand old Congress had always suffered from internal issues and differences among the leaders. Despite the party being on the verge of getting washed away from the political arena if not gets strengthened, the leaders are not learning from their mistakes.
The Telangana wing of Congress hinted at big progress with Revanth Reddy taking up the Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC). With young blood leading the party, Congress has been attacking the TRS with full intensity. Pouring water on that, the internal issues have popped up.
The Congress leadership picking Revanth Reddy for the state chief post did not go well with many seniors as they could not digest the fact that Revanth Reddy who joined the Congress from Telugu Desam Party was given the key post. A few leaders have openly expressed their unhappiness on this and started working with Revanth Reddy.
Proving that things are not well in the party, senior leader Komatireddy Venkat Reddy had skipped a key meeting that was held to discuss how t make arrangements for Rahul Gandhi's visit. Having skipped the meeting, the MP made his presence at the meeting attended by the Union Minister for Road Transport and Highways Nitin Gadkari.
Even Komatireddy's brother Rajagopal Reddy did not take the meeting seriously. Even though the Komatireddy brothers have a stronghold on the combined Nalgonda region, they have reportedly did not gather bring people for the meeting resulting in less attendance than anticipated.
With the Komatireddy brothers giving a big shock to the party, it is interesting to see what the party will do now. Recently, Rahul Gandhi said that only leaders who work for the party will be supported, and only they will be given the tickets to run the polls.
As the Komatireddy brothers are said to have come into the bad books of the Congress leadership already, political experts say that they might have serious action. The Congress party is focusing strongly on bringing the lost glory to the party and it might not even shy away from taking strong action. Let us wait and see.
