Telangana: Congress in disarray as senior leader accuses party of ‘selling tickets’ ahead of state elections

The elections to 119-member Telangana Legislative assembly will be held in a single phase on December 7th and the results will be announced on December 11.

The Congress party in Telangana has taken a deep dive into a crisis, as the state unit has been hit from controversies after complaints have been raised alleging corruption and ‘sale of tickets’ to contest in the upcoming Telangana assembly elections.

According to the reports, Ranga Reddy District Congress Committee President Kyama Mallesh on Wednesday released a “recorded audio” alleging corruption charges against All India Congress Committee’s Screening Committee Chairman Bhakta Charan Das. He accused the senior Congress leader’s son of demanding Rs 3 crore from him for the party ticket to contest from Ibrahimpatnam constituency.

Mallesh also alleged that some Congress leaders have collected Rs 10 crore from former minister and now TRS candidate from Khairatabad constituency and in return, fielded “weak” candidate Dr Dasoju Sravan from Khairatabad. Kyama Mallesh speaking to the media said that “brokers” and “coverts” in Congress party are resorting to selling party tickets ahead of the state elections without the knowledge of AICC president Rahul Gandhi.

Kyama Mallesh said that he has worked for Congress for 35 years, but, Uttam Kumar Reddy has cut his throat and backstabbed him, said Mallesh. He further warned Uttam Kumar Reddy that people of the State will do the same in the elections to Congress.

“I have informed TPCC president N Uttam Kumar Reddy and State Congress affairs in-charge RC Khuntia of the same. They have asked me not to make the issue public,” Mallesh said.

Mallesh, who lost his ticket to TDP’s candidate said that ‘Backward Communities’ (BC) particularly Yadavs and Kurumas are being neglected by the Congress. “Injustice was done to Yadavas and Kurumas in Congress. I lost my wife, money and career in Congress,” Mallesh said. He also praised TRS for allocating more number of seats to BCs in the upcoming state elections.

Meanwhile, son of former Home Minister P Sabita Indra Reddy, P Karthik Reddy has resigned from the party as an active member and also as a member of the Congress campaign committee. Karthik Reddy, a senior Congress leader has asked the party to accept his resignation or allot Rajendra Nagar Assembly seat, which Congress has gifted to TDP.

Recently, Telangana Congress unit had desperately attempted to indulge in communal politics after it’s state president Capt. N Uttam Kumar Reddy had promised to bring ‘Jesus rule’ if the Congress were voted to power in the upcoming state assembly elections. Uttam Kumar Reddy had announced various sops and reservations for the Christian community to garner votes ahead of the state elections in Telangana.

The elections to 119-member Telangana Legislative assembly will be held in a single phase on December 7th and the results will be announced on December 11, 2018, along with the results of the other four states.
