The ongoing padayatra of Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee working president and Malkajgiri MP A Revanth Reddy appears to have created a vertical split in the party.

Senior Congress leaders are angry with Revanth Reddy for taking up padayatra all of a sudden without even discussing the plan with the party top leaders. Particularly, PCC president N Uttam Kumar Reddy, who held a meeting with some seniors, reportedly expressed unhappiness over Revanth’s decision.

He reportedly told all the party seniors not to attend Revanth’s rally at Raviryala on the occasion of the completion of his padayatra on Tuesday.

He told them that Revanth padayatra had no endorsement from the high command; and so, it is better they all stay away from the concluding meeting.

Revanth Reddy’s group, however, is arguing that the high command had made it clear that the party leaders could take up any programme to revitalise the party.

However, seniors say the high command had asked the leaders to take up programmes in their respective constituencies.

“How can Revanth Reddy take up padayatra in Nagarkurnool and Mahabubnagar parliamentary constituencies, instead of Malkajgiri? This is nothing but insulting the leaders of these constituencies,” a senior said.

It is learnt the party seniors are bringing pressure on AICC in-charge of Telangana affairs Manickam Tagore not to attend Revanth’s rally on Tuesday.
