Rousing reception for K C R in AP irks Revanth Reddy


Telangana Chief  Minister K  Chandrasekhar Rao  is  popular not  only in his  state, but his mass  appeal in Andhra Pradesh is  also  wonderfully high. It was witnessed when he attended a marriage  function in  the  Rayalaseema’s Anantapur  district  in Andhra Pradesh in  recent  past. It was the marriage of Paritala Sriram  son  of civil supplies minister of  Andhra  Pradesh, Sunitha,  widow  of Paritala  Ravi. The Telangana Chief Minister was the attraction of  every eyeball in  the  function. Even the AP Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu was comparatively  ignored. KCR was once the  cabinet  colleague of Paritala Ravi  in the NTR  ministry. After a long time the  chief ministers of the neighboring states  met each other, of  course  with mental reservations.

This gesture of the audience received by  the  Telangana Chief Minister irked the  TDP Telangana working president A Revanth Reddy who criticized the  AP ministers and legislators for  giving reception  to the Telangana Chief Minister.  He is the  front ranking critic  of the KCR  performance. There are strong  rumours  that he  is mulling to join  the  Congress. So  far he did not refute the political speculations. When asked about it he said there are  no strong political parties in  Telangana except  pro-KCR and anti-KCR groups. What is wrong in having close relations  with Congress,  he queried. Some Congress leaders are welcoming  him,  but  he  is non-committal.

The TRS leaders said  they were least bothered about Revanth Reddy’s joining the  Congress. Welcoming  the  TDP  leader is the  clear  indication  that the  Congress is far from  stable in  the state.
