The Political Ekalavya, Revanth Reddy.
The article’s title might seem too exaggerated, but surely it’s not. In an era, where power and money dictate the fate of a politician, Revanth Reddy seemed to hail above them. If one can ignore his controversies for a while, he is nothing short of Ekalavya, who offered his right thumb as ‘guru dakshana’ to Dronacharya.
After he was humiliated, cornered and tainted by a few in TDP, he left the party in a most shocking manner. Post that, Revanth never spoke a word against Chandrababu or the Party. His mention about Chandrababu’s help and his tight-lipped nature over the happenings will have a constructive impact in his political career.
With Congress positive about establishing itself in Telangana, it is heard that Revanth Reddy is looking to create a progressive environment between TDP and Congress for the upcoming 2019 elections.If this happens, and TDP-Congress work together and manage to form a government in AP, the move could well shake the national politics.
With ever rising intolerance against BJP from all corners of the nation, Congress is working with all regional parties across all the states to create a ‘Non-BJP/NDA government’ at the state level.
If Congress manages to lead a coalition government in 2019 supported by regional parties and individual MPs, Chandrababu Naidu, who is currently facing repeated humiliation from Modi and BJP, will surely be respected at 10, Janpath, New Delhi more than ever. Even the dream of ‘Special Status’ to Andhra Pradesh might be a reality.
