Jana Reddy To Take A Break From Politics

Veteran Congress leader Jana Reddy today announced that he would be taking a break from politics for some time.
Hyderabad | 2nd May 2021
Veteran Congress leader and former minister K Jana Reddy, who just lost Nagarjuna Sagar by-election to the TRS' Nomula Bhagat, today announced that he would never contest for any other elections for the rest of his political career. He also announced that he would take a break from politics for some time.

Speaking to the media after the conclusion of the counting, Reddy said that he would honour the verdict of the people of the constituency.

He clarified that had contested in the election just to stand by national Congress president Sonia Gandhi, and his fellow party leaders and workers.

"I was not keen on contesting for the Nagarjuna Sagar seat but did so following the orders of my party's high command. While I will return to politics whenever there is a need to do so, I will, for now, take a break from politics for some time. I respect the decision of the voters of Nagarjuna Sagar. But it is my belief that while many voted for the TRS out of fear, many others voted for Nomula Bhagat believing that they would benefit by supporting the ruling party's candidate. I am not unhappy with my loss and will continue to work for the people of Telangana, which, as I have said before, was formed by the then-Congress-led Centre on my suggestion," the veteran leader added.

Reddy had bagged 70,932 votes.
