New Delhi, December 5
Anumula Revanth Reddy, Telangana state Congress chief, who played a key role in the party's convincing win in the November 30 Assembly polls in the state, is the Congress high command’s choice for Chief Minister.
Congress general secretary K C Venugopal announced in Delhi that Reddy will be Telangana Chief Minister.
The 54-year-old Reddy, who was the face of the Congress’s campaign, had faced challenge from within the party in his bid for the top post.
The swearing-in ceremony, which was to take place on Monday afternoon, was cancelled after some of the party veterans from the state opposed the choice of Reddy for the post.
