Telangana senior Congress leader Komatireddy Venkat Reddy, who has been maintaining soft stand on KCR and his government till recently has now turned as arch rival to KCR. Putting aside the speculations that he will join TRS, the Congress leader mounted criticism on KCR. Continuing his fight on KCR, the senior Congress leader threw a fresh challenge. This time, Reddy said he will quit politics permanently if the TRS comes to power again in 2019 election.
He phoo phooed KCR's claim that TRS will sweep next election by winning 100 MLA seats, out of 119, in the Assembly. The chief minister was relying on survey reports without knowing the people's pulse. People in Telangana are vexed with KCR rule as it failed to waive farmers loans and other people's issues.
The Congress leader asked KCR to let all the TDP and Congress MLAs joined TRS quit their posts and fight the election afresh to prove that TRS is strengthened in Telangana. Komatireddy alleged KCR has created 21 new districts only to grow his family members financially and politically.
