Greetings Prime Minister Modi: Prime Minister Modi congratulated Revanth Reddy on his inauguration as Chief Minister of Telangana. In a post on his X page, the Prime Minister said, “Congratulations to Revanth Reddy who has been sworn in as the Chief Minister of Telangana. I promise to provide all possible assistance for the development of the state and the welfare of the people.”
Since the formation of Telangana state in 2014, the Bharat Rashtra Samithi government led by K. Chandrasekhar Rao, who was the chief minister, was in power. The Congress won 65 of the 119 seats in the recently concluded assembly elections and wrested power from KCR. RSS Revanth Reddy, who started his public career with the Akila Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad, later joined the Telangana Rashtriya Samithi, now Bharat Rashtra Samithi. Later he joined Telugu Desam Party and now he is in Congress Party.
Revanth Reddy predicted the decline in influence of the TDP in Telangana and jumped to the Congress party even before the top brass of the party knew it. Even so, Revanth Reddy is said to be close to Telugu Desam Party chief Chandrababu Naidu. However, Chandrababu Naidu spoke openly about his political future and broke away from Telugu Desam and joined the Congress without any regrets.
