Congress breaks ‘family’ rule
Congress breaks ‘family’ rule. Make rule and gradually break them, seems to be the policy of the Congress party.
Anam, Uttam emerge exceptions
Hyderabad: Make rule and gradually break them, seems to be the policy of the Congress party.
Several senior political families were disappointed over the rule of ‘one ticket per family’ introduced by the in this election. While some could not introduce their wards into politics due to the rule, some others sacrificed their careers for the sake of their family members. The rule is so strict that senior minister Sabitha Indra Reddy is also no exception to it.
Senior Congress leader Palvai Govardhan Reddy’s daughter Sravanti went a step further by filing nomination papers as a rebel candidate after she was denied the party ticket.
A cursory glances evidences that the rule is being implemented in letter and spirit much to the chagrin of veterans. For instance, the rule was set aside for two families – one in Nellore district and other in Nalgonda district.
However, in the case of Anam family in Nellore district, the rule was flouted more than once. To add salt to the wounds, Anam was gifted not two but three tickets!
Anam Rama Narayan Reddy is contesting from Atmakuru and his brother Anam Vijay Kumar Reddy is contesting from Nellore Rural constituency. As Anam Vivekananda Reddy has opted out of the race his eldest son Anam Chenchu Subba Reddy is likely to contest from Nellore City. It is likewise, in Nalgonda district. Sitting MLA of Huzurnagar and former minister Uttam Kumar Reddy is given party ticket to contest from his constituency. He caught everyone unawares when he was successful in ‘getting’ a ticket for his wife Padmavati, who will contest from Kodad in Nalgonda district.
Strange indeed are the ways of Congress party high command.
