In a major shock to Revanth Reddy, his staunch supporter, follower Kancharla Bhupal Reddy has joined TRS. Many thought that Bhupal Reddy would join Congress along with Revanth Reddy in the presence of Rahul Gandhi. Bhupal’s name was featured in the list Revanth submitted to Rahul that his supporters would join Congress along with him. In fact, Bhupal Reddy had accompanied Revanth when the latter met Chandrababu Naidu in Amaravati to say his good-bye to party.
In between, what happened is the story that is worrying many TDP leaders and Congress leaders. Apparently, Kancharla Bhupal Reddy is expecting a ticket from Nalgonda Assembly seat which Revanth couldn’t give him a promise.
Since Komati Reddy brothers are strong in Nalgonda from Congress and Komatireddy Venkatreddy is a sitting MLA who won over five times, it is highly unlikely that Kancharla Bhupal Reddy would be given ticket in the place of Komatireddy.
Whereas TRS has cashed in on this situation on time. CM KCR has directed Nalgonda district TRS leaders and Nalgonda TRS MP Gutta Sukhender Reddy to join Kancharla Bhupal Reddy. With all necessary promises from TRS along with a promise of offering ticket in the next general elections, Kancharla Bhupal Reddy has changed his mind in the last minute.
Bhupal has skipped to go to Delhi along with Revanth. Instead, he stayed here and held deliberations with TRS. The final outcome is that Bhupal joined TRS which is now a dead-against to Revanth.
Bhupal has good following in people. He has support from masses. He had successfully drawn public for Revanth Reddy’s Padayatra since then he has become so close to Revanth. However, now, both are two poles apart politically.
