KCR to appeal AP voter to defeat TDP

No Comments

It’s official now. TRS president and Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao will not tour AP to campaign against TDP in upcoming AP Assembly polls.

KCR will only make an ‘appeal’ to AP voters before the crucial polling to defeat TDP and give ‘long leave’ to Chandrababu Naidu in the ‘interests of AP’.

KCR will address AP voters through electronic and print media before polling explaining the need why Naidu should be thrown out of power for the speedy development of Andhra Pradesh and for the speedy construction of new capital city.

KCR will urge AP voters to take a ‘wise decision’ before casting their vote and that ‘wise decision’ will be defeating TDP.

KCR will not appeal voters to vote for any particular party but will only request them to defeat TDP and teach a fitting lesson to AP CM Chandrababu Naidu, who failed on all fronts in his five-year rule.

Though Naidu and other TDP leaders have intensified attack on KCR as elections near accusing nexus between “KCR-Jagan” and “TRS-YSRCP” to defeat TDP, KCR has been maintaining complete silence.

KCR chose not to respond on Naidu’s criticism saying that AP people have lost faith on Naidu and already took a firm decision to throw him out of AP and there was no need for him to react on Naidu’s charges against him at this stage.

Kodandaram to take on Kavitha with Congress support

No Comments

Telangana Jana Samithi president Prof Kodandaram, who played a ‘key role’ in Telangana statehood agitation by setting up TJAC, seems to be gearing up for the ‘final battle’ of his political life.

He is all set to contest from Nizamabad Lok Sabha seat against TRS sitting MP and KCR’s daughter Kalvakuntla Kavitha.

Prof Kodandaram did not contest recent Telangana Assembly polls in December, though TJS was part of Congress-led Mahakutami comprising of TDP and CPI due to ‘differences’ over seat-sharing and lack of time to plan campaigning with the delay in finalising Mahakutami candidates.

TJS faced humiliating defeat at the hands of TRS as it drew blank though it contested in 8 seats in TS Assembly polls.

But Kodandaram has decided not to give up and continue his fight against ‘family and dictatorial rule’ of KCR.

Kodandaram wants to teach a fitting lesson to KCR by defeating his daughter Kavitha.

Kodandaram feels that even if TRS wins all the seats in Telangana and loses Nizamabad, this will be a big blow to KCR and TRS, which will go a long way in strengthening Opposition parties in Telangana in the coming days, which are now pushed to a corner due to successive defeats at the hands of TRS in all the elections.

Congress is keen to support Kodandaram in Nizamabad and will not field its candidate.

Congress feels that there is severe anti-incumbency against Kavitha in Nizamabad but due to lack of a ‘strong leader’ from Opposition there, they could not capitalise it.

But this time, all parties including Congress, TDP, Left Parties, TJAC and other civil organisations are coming together to jointly field a ‘strong candidate’ in the form of Prof Kodandaram to defeat Kavitha and to give a ‘befitting reply’ to KCR.

became a national crush instantly the moment her wink video got viral. The video that took the internet by storm and left fans go weak in the knees.

The gorgeous lady has never failed to leave us spellbound every time she dresses up and show up ever since.

But this time, her beauty, sass and style all are making us go weak in the knees and we certainly aren’t complaining. So, the diva took to Instagram to share a pic of hers that oozed style and sass.

The photo in question saw her wearing a yellow baggy crop top with striped pants. Priya had tied her in a bun and her envious jawline was giving us many goals.

While in the name of accessories she was wearing sunglasses, she rounded up her look with a nude lipstick.

Apart from her style, what impressed us, even more, was her moon tattoo which was on her back, right below her nape and was looking quite stunning.

Revanth shocks KCR, stops Sabitha from joining TRS

No Comments

The task which was not possible for Telangana Congress bigwigs like TPCC chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy, CLP leader Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka and others, was achieved by TPCC working president Revanth Reddy, who is much junior to them in Congress.

The task was to stop senior Congress leader and MLA Sabitha Indra Reddy from quitting Congress and joining TRS.

Sabitha met KTR two days ago at the residence of AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi and offered to join TRS provided her son Karthik Reddy gets TRS Lok Sabha ticket for Chevella seat.

Congress bigwigs rushed to Sabitha’s residence to pacify her and change her mind but in vain.

When everyone thought the ‘deal’ was finalised and Sabitha joining TRS was only a formality, Revanth sprung into action.

Revanth reportedly met Sabitha and brainwashed her about the humiliation being faced by other Congress leaders like D Srinivas, K Keshava Rao etc in TRS after joining there and convinced her to change her mind.

Revanth told her that KCR gives appointment only once while joining and there will be no entry into Pragathi Bhavan later and any leader how big they may be in other parties have to live like ‘slaves’ for KCR and his family in TRS.

Sabitha told Revanth that she was leaving Congress only for the future of his son.

Revanth assured that he will try his best to secure Chevella LS seat for her son by using his influence with AICC president Rahul Gandhi.

As assured, Revanth called Rahul and secured his appointment to meet Sabitha and Karthik Reddy in Delhi today.

Congress bigwigs are shocked to see Revanth’s influence on Rahul and his ability to stop Sabitha from joining TRS.

KCR and KTR were learnt to have shocked over Revanth’s efforts in stopping Sabitha from joining TRS.

Ali joins YSR Congress

No Comments

Ending speculations, Telugu actor Ali on Monday joined the YSR Congress party.

The comedian called on YSR Congress chief Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy at the latter’s Lotus Pond residence here and joined the party.

Ali, whose full name is Mohammad Ali Basha, told reporters that he would campaign for the party and would like to see Jaganmohan Reddy as the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.

The actor said he has no immediate plans to contest elections but admitted he dreams of becoming a Minister. “Jaganmohan Reddy stands by his word and that is why I have joined YSR Congress,” he said.

Simultaneous elections to Andhra Pradesh Assembly and Lok Sabha are scheduled on April 11.

Ali had earlier met Chief Minister and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) President N. Chandrababu Naidu and Jana Sena leader Pawan Kalyan, but finally picked YSR Congress for his political entry.

The 49-year-old actor, who hails from Rajahmundry in Andhra Pradesh, said he felt that he will not have a secure future in TDP.

“Friendship is different from politics,” he remarked when asked about not joining his friend and well-known actor Pawan Kalyan’s Jana Sena.

Ali has acted in many films featuring Pawan Kalyan in the lead.
