Real Vs Colonialists: TPCC infighting; Diggy plays peacemaker

Hyderabad: Congress infighting took an ugly turn after one group protested against another at Gandhi Bhavan even as Digvijay Singh air dashed to Hyderabad to broker peace.

Singh talked to both factions and tried hard to reach a consensus. One set of leaders wants Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president Revanth Reddy Revanth Reddy to continue, while others want his scalp

Former Rajya Sabha member V. Hanmanth Rao (VHR) met an AICC observer and demanded key posts for senior leaders in the organizational setup. He alleged people are encouraging migrant political workers. VHR remarks did not go well with Revanth Reddy's followers.

Heated discussions took place between the two factions during the meeting.

MLA Danasari Anasuya (Seethakka) said: " It's very distressful for us. Senior leaders in Telangana Pradesh Congress are calling us colonialists. We are fighting against people who are trying to sabotage democracy in the state and centre."

Danasari said such remarks will not resolve the crisis but in fact, will fuel more anger.

Jana Reddy reacts on Covert:

Covert is a term used for those who are secretly working for other political parties. This term has been constantly making rounds in the Congress party circles.

Senior leaders (before Revanth Reddy joined the party) are claiming that those who do not listen to them are 'Coverts'. V Hanumanth Rao said, "Those who are not on our side are coverts."

"I am in favor of resolving the issue. I don't want to indulge in name-calling. There are no coverts in Congress Party. In reality, it is only a fairy tale of some mindsets. All leaders must work together to strengthen the party in Telangana," Jana Reddy said.

Discussions will solve the problems

"Congress party will solve its internal problems through discussions. Those who are thinking that it will be a major blow for the party are wrong," said Digvijay Singh.

He was talking amid heated arguments and name-calling in a back-to-back session on Thursday.

He also held separate discussions with different groups and assured them that no injustice will be done.

Gandhi Bhavan at Nampally was bustling with activity as senior leaders from across the state came to meet Digvijay Singh.

In the recent Bharat Jodo Yatra, the leaders put up a united face and motivated the cadres at the ground force to join Rahul Gandhi.
