She is the rising star of the Congress. Along with Revanth Reddy, she is being touted as the leader of Next in the Congress. Known for her hardworking nature, she is popular for touring her constituency widely. But, till now, she was only confined to her constituency. She has never moved beyond her constituency. But, now this woman leader is slowly spreading her wings across North Telangana.

Yes. We are talking about Mulug MLA Sitakka Anasuya. Sitakka's known Naxal background and her familiarity with the terrain have helped in building an aura around her. She has also carefully cultivated her image by pushing through clips of her visits to the interior forest villages and her service activities among the downtrodden sections. But, despite all these publicity outreaches, she has largely confined herself to Mulugu.

But now with Revanth Reddy's appointment as the TPCC chief, the time for take-off has come. She is now dreaming of emerging as the unquestioned leader of North Telangana. Now that seniors like Jeevan Reddy are on their way out, she has only leaders like Ponnam Prabhakar and Sridhar Babu to compete with.  Both the leaders are confined largely to their respective constituencies.

Sitakka is now trying to expand her sphere of influence to the whole coal belt in North Telangana. She is now likely to be given the charge of winning the coal belt union election. Coal Belt influences several constituencies in Mandamarri, Bhupalpalli, Ramagundam, Kothagudem, Illendu,Manuguru, Godavarikhani and Kothagudem. The influence also extends to Chennur and Bellampalli areas. With the union elections approaching, she is likely to be given the task of winning the elections.

With this, her leadership will extend to the whole of the North Telangana districts. Her profile will also get highlighted. By latching on to the Revanth Reddy bandwagon, she wants to outgrow Mulug and expand to the whole of North Telangana. She is likely to emerge as a key player in the days to come, say analysts.
