Prof. Kodandaram is Kutami’s campaigner

The Congress-led alliance in Telangana had decided to use Prof. Kodandaram to campaign across the State on behalf of the front. A decision was taken at a meeting between Prof. Kodandaram and Congress president Rahul Gandhi in New Delhi the other day. He would be considered the star campaigner for the grand Maha Kutami of the Congress, Telugu Desam Party, CPI and the Telangana Jana Samithi.

The Congress had already named Vijayasanthi and Reventh Reddy as its campaigners. Now, Prof. Kodandaram, who heads the Telangana Jana Samithi, joins the team to lead the alliance electioneering. Prof. Kodandaram who was the chairman of the political JAC during Telangana movement enjoys greater support among the educated youth for his work in statehood for Telangana. He was the source of inspiration to several youth and students during the movement and the Congress now wants to make use of his popularity.

The Congress leadership believes that Prof. Kodandaram’s popularity would help the alliance to wrest power from the Telangana Rastra Samithi. The Telangana youth rallied firmly behind Prof. Kodandaram and K Chandrasekhar Rao during the movement and Prof. Kodandaram is seen as alternative to KCR. However, it is to be seen how far the professor would change the politics in the state in favour of the Congress.

Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi had spent a couple of hours to pacify the dissidents in the Congress who were denied tickets or who could not be accommodated due to alliance. He held talks with more than a dozen aspirants from the party and tried to convince them on the need to give a fight to KCR and his TRS in the State.

On its front, the TDP too is having tough time in convincing its disappointed aspirants. Party supremo Chandrababu Naidu had telephonic conversation with a couple of leaders from the Telangana who could not be accommodated this time. He had reportedly told them that defeating TRS was the prime objective of the party now. He asked the party leaders to work together and bring the grand alliance to power.
