Revanth made TDP floor leader in place of Erraballi

AP Chief Minister and TDP president N. Chandrababu Naidu, in a quick move to ward off any more shocks from the party’s Telangana unit, has appointed Revanth Reddy as the TDP Floor Leader in Telangana Legislative Assembly.
It may be mentioned here that two senior TDP MLAs from Telangana, Errabelli Dayakar Rao and Prakash Goud, inflicted a blow to the party by defecting to the TRS thus rendering the Telangana unit of the party as a sinking ship.
Speculations were also rife that there were some more TDP leaders waiting in wings to switch loyalty to the pink party. Even Revanth Reddy’s name figured among the probable fence-sitters, though he is a prime accused in the sensational Cash-for-Vote scam when he was caught red-handed while allegedly handing over cash to nominated Anglo-Indian MLA Elvis Stephenson.
Thus, true to the adage once bitten twice shy, Chandrababu Naidu seemed to avert another catastrophe by immediately entrusting the Floor leadership to Revanth Reddy. A letter to this effect was handed over to the Assembly Speaker by TDP general secretary M. Amarnath Babu. (NSS)
