Dominance of the Reddy Community in Telangana Congress Candidate List: A Political Trend
In the dynamic political landscape of Telangana, the Congress party has recently unveiled its list of candidates, and it’s evident that the influential Reddy community has claimed a significant share of the spotlight. With deep-rooted influence in both business and politics in the state, the Reddy community’s prominence is further underlined by the presence of the state party president, Revanth Reddy, who joined the party in 2017.
Reddys in Telangana: A Political Force to Reckon With
Comprising nearly 6% of the state’s total population of four crore, the Reddys in Telangana have consistently played a pivotal role in shaping the political landscape. The decision to allocate a higher number of seats to this community is part of a longstanding trend that has not only enabled the Congress to consolidate its power but also secure substantial majorities during election years.
Acknowledgment by Bharat Rashtra Samithi
In a significant acknowledgment of the Reddy community’s influence, the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), led by Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao, who hails from the Velama community, has also allotted a notable number of tickets to the Reddys. A total of 40 tickets have been offered to this community by the BRS, underscoring their political clout.
Diverse Representation: OBCs and Minorities
Following the Reddys, party insiders have revealed that the Other Backward Castes (OBCs) will be the second-largest group to receive around 20 tickets. Furthermore, approximately 10 seats have been reserved for minorities in the old city. In a progressive move, women are expected to secure approximately 7-8 tickets, aligning with the approach of the ruling BRS.
Diverse Representation: Velamas and Kammas
While the Velama community has been allocated approximately 4-5 tickets, the Kammas have not been overlooked. As arch-rivals of the Reddys, they too may receive tickets, highlighting the Congress party’s commitment to a diverse representation.
Congress’s Optimism in the Upcoming Elections
Despite its previous performance, the Congress party remains optimistic about its prospects in the upcoming December elections. In 2018, the party secured just 19 seats, while in 2014, the year Telangana was formed, they won 21 seats. In contrast, the BRS, formerly known as TRS, claimed a much higher share with 88 seats in 2018 and 63 seats in 2014.
In conclusion, the dominance of the Reddy community in the Congress candidate list for Telangana is a reflection of the community’s enduring influence in the state’s political landscape. As the election season approaches, all eyes will be on the Reddys and their impact on the political fortunes of the Congress party.
