Congress was a very good position in Telangana and the reason behind the state formation. Congress sacrificed its hold in Andhra Pradesh for the sake of the formation of Telangana. Congress thought it would become normal in Andhra Pradesh but, it did not become strong. And lost its identity in Andhra Pradesh. The cost of the formation of Telangana, for congress, is to lose its identity in Andhra Pradesh.
Major changes after Telangana Formation:
After Telangana’s formation, Congress and its leadership thought, KCR’s TRS would be merged into Congress. KCR himself said that he would merge his party after the formation of Telangana. But, he did not leave the opportunity to become CM of Telangana.
The vote bank of Congress:
Congress has very ole vote bank. People have been voting Congress from generations and some vote bank is standing still. The same with Telangana. Whatever the reality is, people believe that freedom was achieved by Congress only. The same belief has been there in some section of people. On top of that, Congress gifted the formation of Telangana and made the emotions of people true.
Telangana PCC failed leadership?
Pradesh Congress Committee in Telangana has failed to make the people vote for it and bring the glory to Telangana Congress party. The leaderships have failed to lead the party in Telangana.
Congress has a problem of internal disputes and sycophancy to please the central leadership which made the party at stake. The vote bank started melting and the votes are transferred to the Telangana Rashtra Samithi party. Though there is a chance of pulling the voters to Congress, repeatedly failing to get the votes made the party in trouble.
Uttam Kumar Reddy’s leadership failed to achieve better results in GHMC elections and Dubbaka as well. By taking the responsibility for that defeat he decided to resign.
Who could be the best fit for the PCC Telangana leadership:
Many leaders have been competing for this leadership position, but Revanth Reddy could be the right fit. He was in TDP previously and he resigned the party’s primary membership and later, he joined the Congress party. Many analysts say that he had joined the party to fight against KCR. There is a very good following for Revanth Reddy in Telangana.
At this time, after GHMC failure and there is a raise of BJP, before the expansion of BJP, Congress should take serious steps. Otherwise, BJP might take a bigger share of votes and place in the state. There is a clear polarization of votes based on religious matters. MIM has already polarized the votes purely on religion and as an equal force, BJP could also polarize votes. If congress and its party members work together, they can bring glory to the party again. TRS is also has been suffering the negative talk in the voters and Revanth Reddy has been against KCR. If the party leadership comes into his hands, he could make the congress party regain the past strength. If Congress plans to have an alliance also, it could bring the strength to congress party. The time has to answer if congress would become stronger or not, what strategy would it follow!!
