The Reddy community in Telangana is understood to have finally found a fighter in the form of Telangana TDP working president and Kodangal MLA A Revanth Reddy, who came out openly against a section of the Seemandhra TDP leaders for surrendering to TRS president and chief minister KCR.
Though KCR has been targeting the Reddy community, particularly Congress leaders like Capt N Uttam Kumar Reddy and K Jana Reddy, nobody dared to come forward to launch a counter-attack.
Even when KCR has started wooing the Kamma community by secretly lobbying with the Seemandhra TDP leaders, the Reddys of Telangana had no clue as to how they should react.
But now with Revanth attacking his own party leaders for succumbing to KCR for their business interests and indirectly disclosing his plans to join the Congress party, the Reddy community has gained strength.
Former Sangareddy MLA Toorpu Jayaprakash Reddy alias Jagga Reddy has called for the unification of all the Reddys of Telangana to fight against the KCR government, which is trying to suppress the Reddys with the help of Kamma community.
Several Reddys, who have been with the TRS and the TDP till now, might join the Congress party to consolidate the vote bank.
In the coming days, there is every possibility of a caste polarisation in Telangana and by 2019, it will be a straight Velama vs Reddy fight in the elections.
