At the inauguration of the Industrial Green Park in Yadadri Bhuvanagiri district on Friday, local MLA Komatireddy praised KTR. This sudden change of stance from someone, who has all along been a staunch critic of the TRS, has set the tongues wagging. The comments drew furious debate. Sources say that Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy's comments are linked to the internal politics of the Congress Party in Telangana. Rajagopal Reddy's brother Komatireddy Venkat Reddy is one of the strongest contenders for the PCC chief's post. If he gets the PCC chief post, it is well and good. If not, Rajagopal Reddy would revolt against the Congress Party and will look for greener pastures.
Sources say this comment is a veiled threat to the Congress High Command which is yet to decide on the PCC chief's post. The high command has to chose between Komatireddy, Revanth Reddy, Sridhar Babu or a BC candidate.
