Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC)’s chief N Raghuveera Reddy resigned to his post a few days ago and the position has been vacant since then. Rumors are extensively being spread that two-time union minister Mangapati Pallam Raju might take charge as the new president of APCC. Though there has been no official announcement from the All India Congress Committee (AICC) about who is going to take over, this particular rumor is going strong.
Pallam Raju who hails from Pitapuram in East Godavari belongs to Kapu community and is hugely popular as an urbane politician. He successfully contested as an MP from Kakinada Lok Sabha division in 1989, 2004 and 2009 elections. He was a close associate of Late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and served as Union minister of state for HRD. He also worked as Union minister for defence in the Cabinet led by former Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh.
Few of the party members said that apart from Pallam Raju, names of Chinta Mohan, Sake Sailajanath, and former Mahila Congress State chief Sunkara Padmasri are also being considered. However, a final announcement regarding this is likely to be made only after the Congress Working Committee meeting, that is expected to be held between August 8 and 10.
