Congress leader and Munugode MLA Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy, who had recently left his party shocked by making clear his intentions to join the BJP soon
, today lashed out at the Congress high command, alleging that the party's present enfeebled condition in the state was the result of the faulty decision-making of the high command itself.
"It is clear to see that the Congress' high command is squarely responsible for the party's current weakened state. It has made far too many errors while taking key decisions regarding important matters, including appointments, which has eroded the party's position in Telangana. This however is not a new development - the leadership has been taking flawed decisions ever since the formation of the first TPCC in 2014. This is what has led to the party's current state of decay," Reddy said.
Referring to the decision of the high command to defer the postponement of the appointment of the new TPCC president till the completion of the by-elections in the Nagarjuna Sagar Assembly constituency, he claimed that the call further proved that the party's leadership was in no position to direct the party any longer.
The MLA also came down heavily on the high command for "failing to recognise" his many attempts to strengthen the party.
"Despite the many failures of the Congress leadership, the party can still revive itself easily because it has many party workers who are willing to devote their life to its service. I urge the high command to recognise such leaders and their efforts," he said.
Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy has reportedly been miffed at the party's leadership for a while now, not least because of the delay in the appointment of the new TPCC chief
. He even expressed his desire to shift to the BJP, citing the Congress' crippled state as the reason for the decision.
