Congress MP Komatireddy Venkat Reddy, who has been very vocal about his opposition to the appointment of fellow party leader and MP A Revanth Reddy to the post of TPCC head, has reportedly softened his "anti-Revanth" stance.
Speaking to the media after paying his tributes to former CM of undivided Andhra Pradesh late Y S Rajasekhar Reddy on the occasion of the latter's birth anniversary today, he said that though he had made critical remarks against Revanth Reddy, this was not due to any deep animosity against the leader but more as a result of his own disappointment at not getting the post.
The MP also stated that he had spoken as a senior leader of the party, hinting perhaps at the possibility that his statements about the appointment echoed the feelings of other party members. Further, he claimed that though said that he had received invitations from several parties to join their ranks, he would not desert his party and would continue to work for it without the expectation of getting any big appointments.
Venkat Reddy reiterated that he would continue to serve the Congress, and asserted that the party would not grow if "group politics" within its ranks continued, and advised its rank and file to "mingle" with the people of Telangana in order to regain popularity, claiming that his victory in Bhongir was not the result of "money power" but of the hard work of the party's cadres. He also urged the party's leaders to unitedly defeat Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao.
