Internal Conflict in TPCC Over Assembly Election Candidates

Despite efforts to show unity within the Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC), internal conflicts continue to cause difficulties. In a recent incident, TPCC president A Revanth Reddy and Nalgonda MP N Uttam Kumar Reddy reportedly clashed over recommending candidates for the next Assembly elections, prompting Uttam Kumar Reddy to walk out of the meeting.

The incident occurred during a meeting at Gandhi Bhavan where politicians were reviewing applications for electoral tickets. With several applications from a few constituencies, and even multiple applications from a single family, party leaders’ perspectives diverged.

Revanth Reddy’s stance was that no explicit recommendations about numerous applications from a single family should be presented to the party’s top command.He thought the party should make a decision on this.

Uttam Kumar Reddy, on the other hand, stated that even if a single family submitted many applications, the state government may make recommendations based on the applicants’ chances of winning. This disagreement turned into an argument, and Uttam Kumar Reddy abruptly left the meeting.

This conflict occurs at a time when both Uttam Kumar Reddy and his wife Padmavathy Reddy are running for Assembly seats in distinct areas. In the midst of these tensions, the State Congress leadership has agreed to call another meeting on September 2 to discuss the situation further. The outcomes of this meeting will be forwarded to the AICC Screening Committee, which will solicit feedback from various sectors before making any decisions.
