Campaign to bring back Jalagam

KHAMMAM: Will Jalagam Venkat Rao estranged Congress leader be back into the mainstream of the party ? His loyalists have taken up a campaign in the district thus mounting pressure on the party leadership for bringing him back in to organisation. They are leaving for Hyderabad to meet the Chief Minister, Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy and the PCC President, D. Srinivas as part of the mission.

They were given an appointment to meet the Chief Minister at his residence on Wednesday evening.

Mr. Venkat Rao, who contested from Khammam Assembly constituency as an independent candidate after failing to secure the Congress party ticket, had lost to the Telugu Desam narrowly. The defeat of the Renuka Chowdhury, Congress nominee in Khammam parliamentary constituency was attributed to Mr. Venkat Rao.
