Manikrao Thakre replaces Manickam Tagore as Telangana State INC Incharge

Manikrao Thakre, a senior Congress leader from Maharashtra, has been named the new AICC in-charge for Telangana by the Congress high command, replacing Mr. Manickam Tagore, who has been appointed the in-charge for Goa.

Mr. Thakre served as the Maharashtra Pradesh Congress Committee’s previous president and was a four-time MLA and two-time MLC. In the Sushil Kumar Shinde Cabinet, he also held the position of Minister. He will assume responsibility right away.

Mr. Thakre makes his way to Telangana in order to unify the cadre of the Congress party, which is split between its leaders. After senior leader Digvijaya Singh visited on a two-day visit to meet with senior leaders, who raised a banner of revolt against the leadership style of TPCC president A. Revanth Reddy, a change of guard was anticipated.

Many senior leaders complained that Mr. Tagore was supporting Mr. Revanth Reddy and was not paying attention to their recommendations for the revival of the party. Mr. Digvijaya Singh appears to have sent his report suggesting a change to set the house in order.

When a section lacked confidence in him, Mr. Tagore had earlier stated that he wanted to be released from his Telangana duties. He met Mr. Rahul Gandhi on December 19 and Mr. Mallikarjun Kharge, the president of the AICC, on December 20. During each meeting, it is said that he expressed his thoughts verbally and did not provide anything in writing.

According to reports, Mr. Tagore told Mr. Kharge during their meeting that it was improper for him to remain in his position when his superiors lacked confidence in him. Despite his best efforts, some important issues remained unresolved as a result of divergent political ideologies among some leaders.

According to sources, he had explained to the party’s high command that the main point of contention among leaders was whether or not to form an electoral alliance with the KCR lead ruling party Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS). One group of leaders prefers an electoral alliance with the BRS, while another group is adamantly opposed to it.

Mr. Tagore apparently stated that he had done his best to instill the Congress culture in Mr. Revanth Reddy, who had come from a regional party Telugu Desham.  Mr. Reddy was a benefit to the Congress and its resurgence in Telangana, and he needs to be carefully raised to be the party’s leader. But he claimed that this was taken as unquestioning support.
