Ram Reddy Damodar Reddy is 4 terms MLA from Thungathurthy Assembly Constituency of Khammam District, Andhra Pradesh. He served as Minister for Information Technology in the first cabinet of Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy. His brother MLA Ram Reddy Venkat Reddy has been chosen for cabinet in the second cabinet of YSR in 2009. Damodar Reddy was elected to the Assembly from Suryapet Assembly constituency in 2009 elections. He has been consistent and strong voice in favour of Telangana statehood issue among the Congress leaders.
He was a staunch follower of YS Rajasekhar Reddy but Telangana issue and his quest for a cabinet berth in post YSR cabinets has made him antagonist of the YSR family. Failed in securing a place in N. Kiran Kumar Reddy’s cabinet, Damodar Reddy appears to have threatening the Party bosses and tilting towards Y.S. Jagan’s fold. Damodar Reddy’s recent comments on Y.S. Jagan are indicating that he would support the Y.S. Jagan if the later stands for Telangana statehood issue. Nothing is impossible in politics! See the brief profile of Ram Reddy Damodar Reddy:
