Did you notice that several senior TRS leaders, who were always active during the Telangana agitation and also in the 2014 government, are now almost in the limbo? They are now inactive and are not even attending the party programmes. Where are leaders like Nayini Narasimha Reddy, Madhusudhana Chary, Kadiyam Srihari and Swamy Goud these days?
All these leaders played an important role in TRS 1.0 and held posts like the deputy CM, Speaker and the Home Minister. There was a buzz that Swamy Goud would be asked to contest from the Chevella MP seat, but that had never happened. Even Tummala Nageshwara Rao is now in limbo. Though KCR himself wooed leaders like KA Suresh Reddy and Mandava Venkateshwar Rao in Nizamabad ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, he had dumped them like hot potatoes after the elections.
Sources say that KCR is not going to promote any senior in the party has he wants to pass on the mantle of leadership to his son KTR. KTR is already the working president of the party and is representing the government at the national and international level. Realising that their time is passÃ©, most of these leaders are now keeping a low profile. Many have even stopped visiting the party offices too.
