Regime change does not necessarily override family bonds. HMRL MD NVS Reddy is likely to continue in his position even in the Congress government. Although the new government is keen on sacking officers continuing in various positions post their superannuation, NVS Reddy is likely to be an exception. NVS was closely associated with former Union Minister Jaipal Reddy; both having played a pivotal role in realising Hyderabad Metro. Revanth Reddy’s bonds with Jaipal Reddy run deep. For starters, Jaipal’s niece is Revanth’s wife.
