Congress leader and Bhongir MP Komatireddy Venkat Reddy today stated that he would remain in the party and added that he had no plans to leave it. He also clarified that the post of TPCC head was but a very small thing in his larger political vision.
Speaking to the media in New Delhi, Reddy however did mention that he felt that there were many "efficient leaders" who could run the Telangana Congress unit well and said that the current TPCC chief, MP A Revanth Reddy, was a "young boy" as compared to those leaders.
He urged the media not to raise the topic of Reddy's appointment any further in his presence, stating that he would not speak on the matter of politics.
The leader then said that he believed that public representatives needed to focus on development and not on "petty politics", and vowed to always fight against the state and union governments to help the public solve its problems.
Reddy, who has been very vocal about his opposition to the appointment of Revanth Reddy to the post of TPCC head, has reportedly softened his "anti-Revanth" stance
recently. Some days ago, he had said that though he had made critical remarks against the MP, this was not due to any deep animosity against Revanth Reddy himself 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 senior party members.
