Why did Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy Meet Harish Rao?

MLA Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy is keeping the Congress on tenterhooks. At a time when the Congress is preparing for the all-important Huzurnagar bypolls, Komatireddy is springing surprise after surprise.

He shocked everyone by meeting Finance Minister T Harish Rao and spoke to him for over a half-hour spurring speculations about the possibility of his joining the TRS. Meanwhile, there are already rumours of his planning to join the BJP.

Komatireddy is in touch with the BJP top brass. On Wednesday, he again surprised everyone when he said that he was technically still a Congressman and that he would resign from the MLA post before joining the BJP.

He has termed the Congress a sinking Titanic and has once again said that the BJP is the only alternative to the TRS in Telangana.

He said the situation seems to be favourable for the BJP to grow as a credible alternative to the TRS in Telangana. He said the Congress has no future in the state.

Rajagopal Reddy has been hobnobbing with the BJP for quite some time, but his elder brother Venkat Reddy has already said that he would remain with the Congress Party.
