As one is the former speaker of the assembly and is an influential Reddy leader and the other is a former minister and a strong leader of the settler community, how KCR is going to fulfil the promise he gave to these two senior leaders is the question. While one was a Congress leader, the other was from TDP. Ministerial berths were promised to them.
As nobody is talking about them and KCR has almost forgotten them, both these leaders now feel left out. Even during the recent ministry formation, their names have not been considered. These leaders feel that they have been ignored and have been given short shrift now. Yes, we are talking about K Suresh Reddy and Mandava Venkateswara Rao, who are from undivided Nizamabad and were roped in to ensure Kavitha's victory.
Mandava joined the party ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, while Suresh Reddy joined ahead of the Assembly polls. Kavitha has been defeated in the elections even after their best efforts. KCR seems to be ignoring their claims to a place in the ministry as a result. Their need is not being felt anymore. Whether they get anything from KCR or not is yet to be seen.
