The Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee is trying hard to re-establish itself in the state of AP with a fresh strategy. Thus the steering committee has started holding talks with the bigwigs and senior most leaders who left the party post its humiliation in 2014.Congress which enjoyed the power for two consecutive years in the United AP and also at the center got vanished from many places. In Andhra, the situation is worse such that they couldn’t win just one seat in the whole State.
Watching their defeat, the top leaders like Uttam Kumar Reddy, KVP Ramachandraiah, Raghuveera Reddy and others decided to strengthen the party by bringing back the strong leaders. The first two names those came to their minds were the former cum last CM of United AP Nallari Kiran Kumar Reddy and top notch orator cum ex MP Undavalli Arun Kumar Reddy. According to the APCC, these two leaders along with some senior leaders like Kavuri Sambasiva Rao etc are very important in reviving the lost charm of the party.
Their main motto is to acquire at least a double-digit figure in AP to have a good start, for now, such that they can develop more for 2024.But the million dollars question is whether these leaders who left the party post the bifurcation are willing to re-enter the Political battle. We have seen some strong leaders like Lagadapati Rajagopal declaring their Political retirement who restricted themselves to homes despite changing loyalties. Undavalli too indirectly stated a couple of times that he neither go back to the Congress nor join YSRCP.
