Telugu clout declining in national politics: Revanth

Must read

Chief Minister Revanth Reddy said that the role of Telugus in national politics is on the decline. Sanjeeva Reddy, PVN and NTR rose to the level of being able to dictate national politics. S. Jaipal Reddy and Venkaiah Naidu continued their legacy by maintaining a key role in national politics.
“Today, the role of Telugus in national politics is almost nil. It is not a good sign for our survival at the national level. It is high time we moved together and restored the political glory of Telugus in national politics. Telugu is the most widely spoken language after Hindi at the national level. We should also dominate national politics. We hardly found any Cabinet minister from the Telugu States in the Union Government,” the CM said.
He released a book titled ‘Governorpet to Governor’s House’ at the MCRHRD Institute in Hyderabad on Sunday. The book is authored by the former DGP and Governor, PS Ram Mohan Rao.
Addressing the gathering, the CM said that it was a good opportunity to attend as the chief guest at a book release event. “It is a great experience for me to meet all intellectuals who have gained knowledge in the last 76 years,” he said.
The CM said the Telangana Government will seek suggestions from experienced intellectuals and administrators. In the past, NTR had not fielded his party’s candidate against PV Narasimha Rao, so that the senior Congress leader from Telangana could be elected MP unanimously and become the Prime Minister.
“There is nothing wrong with pursuing good traditions in politics. My government will also adopt such a good tradition. Despite the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, we should maintain cordial relations. I am seeking the cooperation of everyone to develop the state and reach development results to the people,” he said
