BRS Losing Foothold in KTR's Citadel

Many from Sircilla heading towards Congress

KARIMNAGAR: With the many leaders from political parties, especially from BRS, joining the Congress, the ruling party is emerging stronger in Sircilla Assembly constituency, a stronghold of BRS working president K.T. Rama Rao.

A few days back, BRS Thangallapalli ZPTC leaders Manjula Reddy and her husband Ramalinga Reddy moved over to the Congress. Following them were 15 BRS councillors, who have also decided to move a no-confidence motion against the municipal chairperson Jindham Kala. Incidentally, 20 out of the 39 councillors are moving the no-confidence motion.

Before the Assembly elections, senior BRS leader and Rythu Bandhu Samithi district president Gaddam Narsaiah had left the party and joined the Congress.

It is not only in the Sircilla constituency but the BRS is also losing its foothold in the Vemulawada segment. Their Vemulawada town president Pulkam Raju, co-option member Srilakshmi and 14 ward councillor Bingi Mahesh have joined the Congress.

Meanwhile, a no-confidence motion is likely to be moved against municipal chairperson R. Madhavi with 21 of the 28 councillors backing the move. At a meeting held recently, they decided to support Konda Srilatha against Madhavi.

Congress sources said that many public representatives from the BRS and other key leaders are in constant touch with senior leaders of the ruling party with a willingness to join it. Some of them are also planning to move a no-confidence motion against MPPs in the district, they added.
