Congress MLAs pick Revanth Reddy for CM's post: High Command to Announce:- According to party sources, the majority of newly-elected Congress MLAs in Telangana expressed their preference for A Revanth Reddy, the state Congress president, to be the chief minister. The Congress high command is expected to reveal their decision on Tuesday. The swearing-in of the new government is anticipated to occur on Wednesday, with the party considering the appointment of one or two deputy chief ministers. Earlier in the day, the newly elected MLAs gathered in Hyderabad and unanimously authorized the Congress president to determine the new Congress Legislature Party leader. The AICC observers, including senior leaders and ministers from Karnataka, individually met with the MLAs to hear their opinions. While many MLAs favored Revanth Reddy, others deferred the decision to the high command. The party is also contemplating the appointment of one or two deputy CMs to ensure a balanced representation of castes.
The Mala (SC) community is represented by Senior MLA Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, who currently serves as the CLP leader. Revanth Reddy introduced a resolution that was supported by Vikaramarka, N Uttam Kumar Reddy, Damodar Rajanarasimha, Komatireddy Venkat Reddy, Sridhar Babu, Ponnam Prabhakar, Tummala Nageshwara Rao, D Anasuya, and Prem Sagar. Vikramarka, Uttam Kumar Reddy, and Venkat Reddy are all contenders for the position of CM.
