Kodanda Sacrifices For Ponnala

Telangana Jana Samithi president Prof M Kodandaram, who has compromised on the number of seats allotted to his party as part of seat sharing in Maha Kootami, had to make yet another sacrifice for the big brother, the Congress party.

On Tuesday, he decided to give up Jangaon assembly seat which his party was allotted to his party as part of the alliance to make way for former Pradesh Congress Committee president Ponnala Lakshmaiah.

Ponnala was thoroughly dissatisfied with the party ignoring his name in finaliding the list of candidates as his constituency Jangaon was allotted to Kodandaram.

He rushed to New Delhi on Tuesday morning to bring pressure on the party high command to make changes in the seat sharing with the alliance partner and see that he would get renomination from Jangaon.

He told the party high command that he had been loyal to party for the last 35 years. Ignoring a senior like him, that too a BC leader, to accommodate a Reddy candidate would cause immensedamage to the party, he said.

When Kodandaram came to know about it, he volunteered to drop out from the contest from Jangaon in favour of Lakshmaiah. He, however, is asking for another suitable constituency.
