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.
