Alliances and poll pacts bring old friends together. Congress senior leader Jeevan Reddy and Telangana-TDP leader L Ramana not only shared the stage for Mahakutami but also conducted a press conference together yesterday. On Monday morning Jeevan Reddy went to Ramana’s house and discussed various things. Jeevan Reddy, a former minister, is a powerful leader. He had won from Jagityal in Karimnagar even at the height of the TRS wave in 2014. He is the only Congress MLA from the whole district.
Everytime he contested, TDP’s L Ramana was his rival. Thus, both have been fighting each other for several years. But, with the Congress-TDP coming together to defeat the TRS, both Ramana and Jeevan Reddy are on one side. Speaking in the press conference Ramana said that Jeevan Reddy must be given opportunity in Jagityal. This development brought new energy to both Congress and TDP cadre.
