A jumbo executive of the Telangana Congress was announced on Saturday with a notable face out of the reckoning being Bhongir MP Komatireddy Venkata Reddy, whose name has not figured in any list and there is no mention of his position as star campaigner as well.
While all the elected MPs and MLAs have found a place in the committees Mr. Venkata Reddy’s name is absent from all of them. Mr. Reddy has been away from the party activities for a few months since his brother Komatireddy Rajgopal Reddy moved to the BJP and unsuccessfully contested in the Munugode bypoll. Despite Mr. Reddy holding the star campaigner post in the party, he did not campaign for the party in the by-poll and there were allegations that he influenced Congress leaders and workers to support the BJP.
The Political Affairs Committee (PAC) has been constituted with 18 members and the executive also consists of 24 vice presidents, 26 DCC presidents and 84 general secretaries. While several leaders from the earlier committees figured in the new list new faces have also found a place in the jumbo committee. Decision on presidents for eight districts have been kept in hold apparently with top leaders insisting on their candidates and consensus arrived at.
The Greater Hyderabad Congress Committee has now been divided into three districts – Hyderabad, Khairatabad and Secunderabad. However, no president has been appointed for Secunderabad while C. Rohin Reddy has been made president of Khairatabad unit, Sameer Waliullah has been appointed for Hyderabad district.
