Rise in Telangana TDP & Cong
leaders joining PRP
With chiranjeevi likely to start his AP yatra
from Telangana, Both congress and TDP facing disertions to Prajarajyam. Already
PRP is going strong in Nijamadab and Adilabad, Karimnagar.
The crisis in the district unit of the Telugu
Desam (TD) is getting deepened with several leaders planning to leave the party.
The city unit is already in total disarray with the exit of senior leaders Dr
Pola Nataraj and Mr Mooga Ram Mohan Rao.
It is also turning out to be a major setback for the leadership of Warangal MP
Errabelli Dayakar Rao, as Mr Nataraj has been a staunch follower of the MP. Mr
Nataraj worked as the election in-charge for Mr Dayakar Rao during the recent
byelections and was a staunch supporter for the MP in the group politics-ridden
Earlier, Mr Dayakar Rao received personal blow with the exit of his younger
brother Errabelli Pradeep Rao, who joined the actor Chiranjeevi’s Praja Rajyam.
Though Mr Pradeep Rao was made the zonal chairman of the National Egg
Coordination Committee (NECC) and was elevated as the chairman of the Warangal
Urban Cooperative Bank, he left the TD.
Similarly, Station Ghanpur MLA Kadiam Srihari was thoroughly embarrassed with
the exit of Mr Ram Mohan Rao, whom he groomed in politics and had ensured his
elevation as the chairman of the Kakatiya Urban Development Authority (KUDA).
Till now the party’s district unit was having only two groups one led by Mr
Dayakar Rao and the another by Mr Srihari.
But since Mr Revuri Prakash Reddy was made the district party chief, the third
group came up. Mr Prakash Reddy’s group is now having the leaders like TD urban
unit president Mr D Hari Hara Prasad and Ms Gundu Sudha Rani and district unit
vice-president Gandra Satyanarayana Rao in its fold.
The TD district unit is witnessing regular desertions with the likes of
Shayampet strongman Mr Allam Bali Reddy and Chennur senior leader Mr N. Praveen
Rao joining the list of those going out of the party. It is learnt that many
other top leaders are also planning to leave the TD in the district as there is
no coordination among various groups.
