Nellore: The present political affiliations and developments leaving everyone to doubt on the unity of Congress party in Nellore district. It seems that the decision of State’s division not only divided the people over Samaikyandhra and Telangana but also made leaders to rethink about their future and also that of the party.
The leaders and cadres of Congress party in the district are parting with the party and looking at new parties. Anam Jayakumar Reddy who have been supporting his two brothers for almost two decades distanced himself from them and left the party. Even he is confronting the brothers. He succeeded in getting some of the close associates of his brothers and other cadres to his camp, which was clear in the bike rally that he held one week ago in the city demanding a united State.
The decision of a separate State also made Nellore city MLA Mungamuru Sridhara Krishna Reddy to distance himself from MLA Anam Vivekananda Reddy, while Sarvepalle MLA Adala Prabhakar Reddy is looking for alternate parties. Sridhara Krishna Reddy, who always used to discuss his decisions with MLA Anam Vivekananda Reddy, this time went to Adala’s residence on July 2 and resigned from there protesting against the State’s division. On the other hand, MLA Adala Prabhakar Reddy openly criticised Congress party as the main culprit of the State’s division. He intensified Samaikyandhra agitations in the city since four days and making sensational comments on the party high command.
Meanwhile, former MLAs Kambham Vijaya Ramireddy, Vishnuvardhan Reddy and Nedurumalli Rajyalakshmi, who have been leading the party in Udayagiri, Kavali, Venkatagiri, Gudur, Sullurpet, Nellore and Kovur constituencies are now keeping silent. Rumours are rife that Panabaka Krishnaiah, husband of Central Minister Panabaka Lakshmi, in-charge of Gudur Congress is trying for Tirupati MP seat from a new party. Former MLA of Kovur constituency Polamreddy Srinivasulu Reddy is holding massive protests and agitations against Congress party’s decision of separate Telangana.
Sullurpet former MLA Nelavala already joined YSR Congress camp whereas the cadres and leaders in Atmakur are internally busy in currying favours with a new party though supporting Congress publicly. News are spreading that about 15 second level cadres leaders of the constituency are waiting in the queue to join a new party. All these developments implying that the Congress fort is slowly breaking apart. Local leaders, who strongly believed that Congress means nothing but power, are now seriously rethinking on their future.
