Sonia Angry With Kandula For His Volte Face

kandulaThe Congress high command is fretting and fuming at the fiasco on selection of the candidate for the ensuing by-elections to Kadapa Lok Sabha seat against YSR Congress Party president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy.According to reports from New Delhi, Congress president Sonia Gandhi was terribly upset with the way Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy for his goof up in announcing the name of Kandula Rajamohan Reddy, a last minute defector from the Telugu Desam Party against a formidable candidate like Jagan, though Pradesh Congress Committee president D Srinivas opposed his candidature.

Kandula reluctantly agreed to contest against Jagan and the state party leaders hastily announced his name. But he developed cold feet in the last moment and put a condition that he would contest the by-elections only if the party gives him a commitment that he would be sent to the Rajya Sabha in the event of losing the by-polls.

The Congress high command was angry with this condition and asked Kandula to get last. Having no other option, the Chief Minister convinced Health Minister D L Ravindra Reddy to contest against Jagan late on Thursday night.

Interestingly, Kandula put forward a similar proposal for Rajya Sabha seat before TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu, but he, too, was not willing to give any such commitment. As a result, he along with his brother Sivananda Reddy switched loyalties to the Congress on Thursday morning.
