Deputy CM Damodara Raja Narsimha has met the Congress chief Sonia Gandhi this morning. There has been hectic parleying withing congress ranks after the open admittance by Shinde yesterday on the possibilities of putting up a government again in AP instead of President’s rule. While the Congress high command is said to have instructed several leaders to be available in Delhi, several other leaders like Uttam Kumar Reddy, Jana Reddy, Kanna Lakshmi Narayana have also made mandatory rounds of key decision influencing level leaders of Congress.
After being asked by the Congress High Command to be available in Delhi, Deputy Damodara met the party leader Sonia Gandhi this morning. He reportedly offered his thanks for being instrumental in passing the Telangana Bill in Parliament. Damodara certainly stands a good chance if the party decides to give the short duration CMship to a Telangana candidate. He fought valiantly against the machinations of Kiran Kumar Reddy and party, stood out at times as the most formidable force withing congress against the Seemandhra lobby. Being a person from the weaker sections of the society, Damodara will definitely present a strong case for the Congress High Command.
Unless the Congress looks at consolidating forces in Seemandhra, Damodara might turn out a little too difficult to be ignored.
