Hyderabad: Seemingly upset over the infighting and indiscipline, AICC special envoy Digvijay Singh warned TPCC leaders against making public statements about the party's internal issues.
During his mission, Digvijay met leaders of both factions and tried to broker peace.
TPCC Chief A. Revanth Reddy and Manikyam Tagore, In-Charge of Telangana submitted their reports to Digvijay
Later he told the media that all issues have been resolved. He said Congress is the only opposition party in Telangana which is championing the cause of the people and fighting against BRS and BJP. He said people will see Congress leaders taking to the streets against the policies of BRS and BJP.
During his press conference, Digvijay tried to put up a united face of the party. V. Hanmanth Rao, who is heading the anti-Revanth Reddy faction, and ex-MP Poonam Prabhakar, who is a close aide of the TPCC president, were present at the press conference
Digvijay thanked the people of Telangana and TPCC leaders for making Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Yatra a grand success in the state.
Revanth Reddy Faction:
Despite Digvijay's claims, Revanth reddy faction is not satisfied with AICC's action. They are upset that AICC policy did not take concrete action against those who called them "migrants" and "colonialists". Leaders close to the TPCC chief are trying to convince him to leave Congress and rejoin Telugu Desam Party. However, Revanth is not ready to take any decision in haste.
Anti Revanth lobby hoped AICC will consider their demands and take the right decision. Leaders like Capt. Uttam Kumar Reddy, Mallu Bhatti, and others have decided to adopt the wait-and-watch policy. At the same time, they are busy lobbying with AICC leaders to get a favorable response.
