From RSS to TPCC Chief
Anumala Revanth Reddy was an RSS ideologist by birth and worked in ABVP during his student life. He completed graduation in AV College, Domalaguda, of OU and first won as ZPTC of Midjil in 2006. From 2007 to 09 he was elected as MLC. With the call of Chandrabbau Naidu, Revanth joined TDP in 2009 and won twice as MLA from Kodangal constituency. In 2017 he joined Congress party and was appointed as its Working President in 2018. He lost as MLA in 2018 assembly elections but won as MP from Malkajgiri Constituency.
From childhood to 2017 he fought against the Congress party as rival and surprisingly now he became chief of the same party. Revanth
Revanth started to execute his work by coming into public in the name of various yatras. Even at Achempeta, he made his followers make a statement urging him to start Paadayatra to Hyderabad. This was supported by MLA Anasuya (Seethakka) and Vamsi Krishna( party leader). Revanth said that he will accept the public demand and convert his deeksha into paadayatra with a statement that, ‘How can I go home in car to my residence and sleep when so many farmers are in favour of paadayatra. I have the courage to fight for four crore people of Telangana and the strength is given by people of Nallamala region,’ Revanth said. He demanded TRS government to pass a resolution in Assembly against the three farm laws. He is the only person who can fight against KCR or KTR, he is young and dynamic when compared to other leaders in the Congress, say his followers. Revanth is planning for paadayatra in Telangana in coming days as TPCC Chief. He met senior leaders Jana Reddy, Shabbir Ali and Bhatti after he was appointed as TPCC president.
Hurdles in front for Revanth
Revanth has many hurdles in front to reach his goal. He has to pacify seniors and bring them all in one line and achieve unity. He has to face strong ruling party, TRS and BJP parallelly. At the same time, he has to take care of the haunting case ’Vote for note scam’ to get elevated image. Another opposition party he has to contend with in coming days is ‘YSRTP’. We have to see how Revanth crosses all these hurdles and bring back glory to the Congress in Telangana state.
