Turbulence in Congress continues as Telangana rebels form ‘Telangana Rebel Front’

Telangana goes to polls on 7th December and the counting will take place on 11th December. The last date for filing nominations is 19th November.

The turbulence in Congress continues as those leaders who were aspiring to get a ticket, were denied one and they formed “Telangana Rebels Front”. To pacify them, a three-member committee is formed to pacify them and ensure they do not contest. The committee constituting of Puducherry Chief Minister V. Narayanswamy, minister Malladi Krishna Rao and Karnataka minister DK Shivakumar reached Hyderabad last night.

Leaders like Vijayarama Rao, who aspired for the Station Ghanpur seat, Boda Janardhan, who aspired for Chennur seat and Patel Ramesh Reddy from Suryapet met in Hyderabad had come together to form the Telangana Rebel Front. They allege that Rahul Gandhi’s instructions on ticket distribution were not followed and some contestants who had lost three previous elections were chosen over the ones which had chances of winning.

As per reports, as many as 40 leaders from Congress are part of the Telangana Rebel Front. The Bahujan Left Front (BLF) a joint front of 28 organisations and parties has also reached out to the rebel front and began talks for a joint alliance. They have reportedly offered 40 seats if they want to contest elections.

Rift is also reported between the Telangana unit of TDP after a few leaders were denied tickets.

Pink Booths

Meanwhile, following the objections raised by Telangana Congress against the ‘pink-coloured’ polling booths in the upcoming state elections, the Election Commission today decided against the same.

Congress had registered objection against the colour pink as KC Rao led Telangana Rashtra Samiti, uses the same colour in its flags, banners and other campaign material. Congress said the colour may give them an undue advantage if the colour is used in polling booth set up to encourage women’s voting.

Telangana goes to polls on 7th December and the counting will take place on 11th December. The last date for filing nominations is 19th November.
