Congress high command accorded permission to Telangana Congress leader A Revanth Reddy to embark on Padayatra. While the senior most leaders Komatireddy Venkatreddy and DK Aruna were denied permission to take up Padayatra ahead of 2019 elections.
Revanth will take up yatra after the Telangana Congress completes bus yatra in May this year. The Bus yatra will be launched from February 26 from Chevella Assembly Constituency.
Besides Revanth, two more senior leaders Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka and Ponnam Prabhakar were also permitted to launch Padayatra simultaneously. However, the two leaders are allowed to take up yatra in their respective districts of Khammam and Karimnagar only.
