KCR’s favourite anchor jumped into YSRC?

TRS chief K Chandrasekhara Rao once thought TV anchor Rani Rudrama Devi to be an asset for his party’s T News channel. Rudrama Devi earned popularity through her anchoring and news reading.

Shocking KCR, she suddenly jumped into the lap of Y S Vijayamma. It is learnt that she is keen on making a political entry and that Y S Jaganmohan Reddy had given her assurance of the Narsamppet ticket from Warangal district.

Rani Rudrama who was thought to be an upcoming charismatic leader for the Telangana movement, shocked many, by meeting Vijayamma in November. She took the YSRCP membership also. She was appointed in-charge of the Narsampet constituency. Jagan has been appointing prospective candidates as in-charges of their respective constituencies. As such, it is being said that Rani Rudrama Devi contesting from the Narsampet constituency of Warangal is a foregone conclusion. Rani Rudrama Devi has no political experience.

Rani Rudrama Devi was working with ABN Andhra Jyothi Channel before joining the Telangana channel. When she left ABN, she charged that Telangana employees were being ill-treated in ABN. With this, KCR gave full publicity to her, apart from job in his channel. In the T Channel, she built up charisma matching that of a film star. It should be seen if people who identified her as an icon of Telangana would now vote for her as the YSR Congress candidate.
