Three years away for General elections in the country Congress starts to reshuffle its units in different states. It settled the matters in fight torned Punjab by convincing Chief Minister Amarinder Singh with appointment of Sidhu as PCC Chief and has been achieved consensus among the two warring groups of Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Sachin Pilot in Rajasthan leaving the final decision to high command.
Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi, General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi focused on other states to strengthen the party. In this order Rahul Gandhi turned his eyes towards Andhra Pradesh where it was vanished with the bifurcation of United Andhra Pradesh.
In a recent meeting with the leaders of the state the high command observer Oommen Chandy had, he passed some confusing comments about cine actor turned politician Mega Star Chiranjeevi that he is not part of the Congress party any more. Of course Chiranjeevi is inactive and has not been attending any party meet in either telugu states.
But Rahul Gandhi reportedly felt that Chiranjeevi still has great mass appeal and is capable of being a vote puller. There was buzz that Rahul Gandhi reportedly discussed with Oommen Chandy on how to revive the party in Andhra Pradesh where it lost its sheen. It is learnt that both the leaders felt that reactivating Chiramjeevi was the one of the main options to give breathing to the party.
Also it is heard that Oommen Chandy was asked to contact Chiranjeevi to convince to take an active part in the party. But as of now Chiranjeevi maintains distance with politics after completion of his Rajya Sabha membership and focusing on films and social service. He recently constructed Oxygen plants for the sake of Covid patients during the second wave of corona which was lauded by many people in both telugu states. Let us wait and watch the developments of what will be the decision of Mega Star.
Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi asked the Andhra Pradesh leaders to come to Delhi before August 15 to discuss the prospectus and revival of the party. He also suggested each of them come up with a plan and strategy that will help to activate the party workers.
