Hyderabad: Rattled by the comments of Munugodu MLA Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy, the Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) has decided to take steps to control the damage.
The disciplinary committee of the PCC would meet on Monday and discuss the issue. The committee may issue a show cause notice to the MLA on the comments he made against the party.
On Saturday, Rajagopal Reddy said that the Congress has no future in the State and only BJP is the alternative to the TRS. He added that most of the leaders have been looking at the BJP.
Rajagopal Reddy said that the Congress leadership did not respond when 12 of its MLAs joined the TRS. The leadership of Rahul Gandhi has weakened, he said.
The comments of Rajagopal Reddy raised the hackles of the Congress leaders. They feel that if no action is taken indiscipline would creep into the party.
Party's State incharge RC Khuntia took a serious note of the comments made by Rajagopal Reddy and spoke with the PCC leaders and asked them to take action on the MLA. On the other hand, Rajagopal Reddy spoke to another MLA T Jagga Reddy over phone on Sunday.
This has given rise to speculations that Jagga Reddy may also leave Congress and join BJP along with Rajagopal Reddy.
Issuing a statement on the comments of Rajagopal Reddy, PCC vice president Mallu Ravi made it clear that the Congress has strong base in Telangana and added that his comments are meant to create confusion in the rank and file of the Congress.
PCC leader G Niranjan said that it has become a fashion for the leaders who have been leaving the Congress to criticize the party. He said that first of all the MLA should introspect on the contributions he has made to the party.
