Chiru will play major role in Congress: DS

Special Correspondent


Congress may consider utilising his services in other States too, if need be, says APCC chief


HYDERABAD: Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee president D. Srinivas has asserted that K. Chiranjeevi who merged his Praja Rajyam into the Congress, will play a major role in the ruling party in the coming days.

Mr. Chiranjeevi had become a part of the Congress which would consider utilising his services in other States too, if need be. The APCC president evaded replies to questions whether Mr. Chiranjeevi would be assigned some important role in the government or the party. He would be given a prominent position in the “Congress”, is all that he said.

“Let the suspense continue. Why are you in such a hurry when Mr. Chiranjeevi himself is patient?” was his reply to reporters' queries during an informal chat here on Tuesday.

Mr. Srinivas said the timing of Mr. Chiranjeevi launching the party (in August 2008) was not proper and this was the reason why he could not succeed. Telugu Desam founder N.T. Rama Rao could succeed as the party was launched at a time when there was no other alternative to the Congress on the State's political horizon.

Mr. Chiranjeevi, however, had to contend with two established parties which was no mean task.

Refusing to comment on the threat by Telangana MLAs of boycotting the Assembly session, he said the party had not received any official communication in this regard.
