Once a popular Tollywood heroine-turned-firebrand political leader from Telangana and former MP Vijayashanti a.k.a Ramulamma might stage a return to Telangana Rashtra Samithi, if the reports doing rounds in a section of media circles are to be believed.
According to these reports, Vijayashanti was very much peeved with the Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee for not involving in any of the party activities in the state, whether it was bus yatra or agitations or even regular meetings in Gandhi Bhavan.
Even during the recent visit of Congress president Rahul Gandhi to Hyderabad, she was nowhere to be seen and she did not get the invitation even for the meeting with self-help group women held at Shamshabad.Though she had met Rahul Gandhi a few months ago, giving rise to the talk that she would make a return to active politics, nothing materialized later as the Telangana Congress leaders have been ignoring her.
Now with the election heat is building up across the state following the dissolution of the state assembly and announcement of early elections, the Telangana Congress has intensified its activity of selection of candidates and forging of alliances with other parties to form a grand alliance.
The Gandhi Bhavan has been buzzing with a lot of activity, but Vijayashanti is not visible anywhere.However, there was one statement from Vijayashanti in the last couple of days, opposing the Congress party’s alliance with the TDP.“The alliance will not help the Congress party in any manner, as the people will not accept this unholy pact,” she said.It is learnt she has started sending feelers to the TRS leadership through her old contacts like K Kesava Rao.
However, there has not been much response from TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao so far. May be, he will consider her admission into the TRS after the assembly elections, party sources said.
