The Congress high command has almost decided to give election campaign responsibilities in Seemandhra to the Central Minister Chiranjeevi. The Congress is likely to continue Botsa Satyanarayana for the PCC chief post.
In Telangana state, the Congress may name Ponnala Lakshmaiah for PCC chief post and Damodara Raja Narasimha will be leading the election campaign.
In both the new states, the Congress seems to be planning to bank on the caste factor. The Congress is heavily depending on Kapu vote bank to revive the party in Seemandhra.
In Telangana state, Congress is likely to go for elections with a mix of factors such as Dalit, BC votes and credit of creating Telangana state.
