This Congress senior leader quits, likely to join BJP

HYDERABAD: Ex-Minister Marri Shashidhar Reddy quit the Congress today, November 22,  four days after the party expelled him for 6 years following his meeting with Union Home Minister Amit Shah.

The senior leader attacked the state leadership while announcing his resignation as the party's primary membership. He is expected to join the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

The late Chief Minister Marri Chenna Reddy's son, Shashidhar Reddy, informed reporters that he was leaving the party with a sad heart and that he had written a letter to Sonia Gandhi, the party's leader, outlining the reasons for his decision.

He said that the Congress had engaged in "match-fixing" with the state's ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi. He is a former deputy chairman of the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA). He said that Telangana's Congress was in decline and that voters no longer believed a leader chosen on a party platform would continue in office.

He said that Congress was incapable of acting as the opposition party. He also said that the Congress party ought to have advocated for the interests of the populace.

The former Minister said, the Congress has been losing elections since Uttam Kumar Reddy presided over the state chapter of the organisation.

He also alleged that those who have money and power are calling the shots in the party. The Congress removed Shashidhar Reddy on November 18 for his anti-party activities.
