Sonia okays Revanth as PCC chief?

If reports coming from New Delhi are to be believed, firebrand Congress leader and Malkajgiri MP A Revanth Reddy is going to be appointed as Pradesh Congress Committee president of Telangana.

Revanth Reddy, who rushed to New Delhi on Monday evening following a call from the party high command, met All India Congress Committee president Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday morning, along with his family members, including wife and children.

“He had a lengthy discussion with Sonia for over half an hour on the prevailing political situation in Telangana and the prospects of the Congress in the coming days. He explained the need for overhauling of the party with young blood,” sources close to Revanth said.

Though Sonia did not make any official announcement on Revanth’s appointment as the PCC chief, she gave enough hints to that effect. She told him to take up the responsibility of strengthening the party from grassroots level to the state level, sources said.

If Revanth’s appointment is confirmed, it might also trigger a lot of revolt in the party, as he was not even a year old in the party and seniors like V Hanumantha Rao and Renuka Chowdary would strongly oppose Revanth’s leadership.

Moreover, it might also antagonize the Dalit and OBC sections, who have been demanding that the PCC chief post should be given to them. However, if Sonia can convince these sections, it might have some effect, sources said.
