A long-overdue purgative blood-letting in the Telangana Congress appears to have started.
At the end of a day that showed that the party continued to be moribund - it won 2 of the 150 seats in the GHMC elections, the results of which were declared today - TPCC president N Uttam Kumar Reddy resigned from his post.
Reddy sent his resignation letter to the party's national president Sonia Gandhi.
In a statement, Reddy said that he had resigned from the TPCC chief's post so that the process of the selection of the next PCC president could start immediately.
Reddy has presided over perhaps the worst period in its history for the party in the region, with the GOP hurtling rapidly towards irrelevance since statehood for the Telangana region in 2014.
