Congress Leader Attempts Suicide In Andhra Pradesh PCC Meeting

Andhra Pradesh Pradesh Congress Committee Chief Raghuveera Reddy - Sakshi Post

Vijayawada: Tension arose in the Andhra Pradesh Pradesh Congress Committee's (APPCC) Coordination Committee meeting here today, after PCC member from Nellore Shivaachary tried to commit suicide by consuming pesticide during the meeting. The attempt was foiled after Congress workers tried to obstruct him from taking the extreme step. The incident created a sensation as senior leaders were present at the meeting.

Speaking about his decision to commit suicide, Shivaachary said that he was depressed over lack of recognition from the party. "I had aspired to contest from Nellore Rural constituency with the party ticket. Nellore DCC President Panabaka Krishnaiah made me spend Rs 50 lakh for party work. But, I had been sidelined in the party and Krishnaiah is encouraging others in the district," he said. He added that he could not bear the harassment by the DCC President.

Andhra Pradesh PCC State Affairs Incharge Oommen Chandy was present at the meeting. The incident showcases the rampant infighting and groupism which plague Congress at the district and constituency level everywhere in Andhra Pradesh.
