DECCAN CHRONICLE | dc correspondent
Hyderabad: The Congress high command on Saturday provided long-awaited approval for the committees for the running of the Pradesh Congress Committee.
The AICC approved the constitution of the executive and political affairs committees besides giving the nod for the appointment of 26 district Congress committee (DCC) presidents, 24 vice-presidents and 84 general secretaries.
Led by PCC president A. Revanth Reddy, the executive committee comprises 40 members. Prominent among them are CLP leader Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, V. Hanumantha Rao, Ponnala Lakshmaiah, N. Uttam Kumar Reddy, K. Jana Reddy, T. Jeevan Reddy, Dr J. Geeta Reddy, Mohammed Ali Shabbir, Damodar C. Raja Narasimha, Renuka Chowdhury, Mohammed Azharuddin, P. Balram Naik. AICC general secretary (organisation) K.C. Venugopal cleared the list.
The 22-member political affairs committee (PAC) of the TPCC is headed by TS incharge B. Manickam Tagore. Apart from the senior leaders who are also part of the executive committee, the PAC also has G. Chinna Reddy, D. Sridhar Babu, Ch Vamshi Chand Reddy and S.A. Sampath Kumar. Besides, M. Anjan Kumar Yadav, T. Jayaprakash ‘Jagga’ Reddy, B. Mahesh Kumar Goud and Azharuddin would be ‘special invitees.’
Bhongir MP Komatireddy Venkat Reddy, 'star campaigner', has failed to find a place in any of the committees.
