Rahul Gandhi unites two ‘warring’ leaders. State Congress committee president N. Uttam Kumar Reddy and Nalgonda MLA Komatireddy Venkat Reddy, a known vocal opponent of the TPCC president, were seen exchanging views and sharing some lighter moments in New Delhi when they met Mr. Gandhi after he assumed charge as president of the All India Congress Committee.
State leaders were surprised to see both the leaders leaving behind their ‘enmity’ and also speaking to the media personnel together.
Such public hobnobbing at least will send a positive signal to the Congress activists who look fired up after Mr. Gandhi’s elevation as the party president. The rivalry of both the senior leaders of the party is well known in the political circles and Mr. Venkat Reddy had been making his efforts to lead the party in Telangana.
