Revanth Reddy shocks with bold predictions for Congress in 2024 elections


Telangana Chief Minister Revanth Reddy has confidently projected that the Congress party will secure 14 out of 17 Lok Sabha seats in Telangana in the 2024 elections. This optimistic forecast follows his party’s victory over K Chandrashekar Rao’s Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) in the state assembly elections of December 2023. Speaking in Bengaluru, Karnataka, Reddy made bold assertions about the national political landscape, including the performance of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his party.

He accused them of neglecting the well-being and development of these regions, stating, “There is no warranty for Modi’s guarantees.” The Chief Minister expressed his dismay over the national leadership’s approach, which he believes discriminates against the southern states.
