HYDERABAD: With local leaders opposing the candidature of former TRS MLA Kusukuntla Prabhakar Reddy from Munugode, party president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has stepped into the action to douse the dissidence fire from flaring up further.
The CM summoned Kancharla Krishna Reddy, who is aspiring for the ticket. Krishna Reddy is brother of Nalgonda MLA K Bhoopal Reddy.
Sources in the TRS said the CM is believed to have told Krishna Reddy and other leaders to work for the party and make August 20 public meeting a big success. The TRS president is believed to have assured him of a corporation post.
In the wake of opposition against Prabhakar, the CM may take more time to announce the candidature of Prabhakar officially, sources said. He asked the local leaders to focus on the public meeting which he is going to address. District minister G Jagadish Reddy reached Munugode constituency headquarters on Saturday afternoon and held a meeting with local leaders.
With Union home minister Amit Shah set to attend a public meeting on August 21 during which former MLA Raj Gopal Reddy will be joining the BJP, the TRS leadership does not want any leverage to be given to the saffron party to make political capital out of the dissidence within the party, sources said.
About 300 local leaders and party workers held a meeting at a function hall in Choutuppal against Prabhakar on Thursday. They declared that they won’t be working for the party in the by-election if the party leadership decides to field Prabhakar.
Meanwhile, Jagadish Reddy also held a meeting with key leaders like MLCs Palla Rajeshwar Reddy and Takkapally Ravinder Rao on how to quell the dissidence within the party. A majority of the leaders who participated in the dissidence meeting at Choutuppal were supporters of Krishna Reddy, sources said.
