Congress’ old war horse V.Hanumantha Rao more popularly known as VH or Hanmanna seems to be waging a lone battle against YSR. This self proclaimed Sonia and Rahul loyalist is not bothered even if he is insulted by them. Many of his juniors were made CM while his BC candidature was thrown in dust bin by Sonia. However he is not unduly petrubed and says strengthening of the party in state is his top priority.
He says currently the party is in dire straits in AP and one should find out YSR and Jagan’s coverts in the party who are working against it. He is calling for brainstorming session but his desperate cries is falling in deaf ears of High Command. He is making all arrangements for the meet at Hyderabad even though his repeated requests and representations with CM Kiran and APCC chief Botsa for a time bound action against Jagan’s supporters is cold shouldered.
He is advocating for removal of YSR name from the party and stoppage of chanting of his name. He says any reference to YSR will ultimately help YSRCP getting free publicity. But many feel he is waging a losing battle as even high command and many of the leaders claiming YSR and his schemes as Cong Party leader and its brainchild. It has to be seen how successful VH will be in his attempts.
