Cold war is brewing between former Union Minister Jaipal Reddy and former Minister DK Aruna. Aruna, who is aspiring to become TPCC president, wants to dominate party activities of the undivided Mahabubnagar district. She is against Jaipal Reddy contesting from the Mahabubnagar Lok Sabha segment. She wants Jaipal either to contest from Nalgonda or some other constituency. Jaipal Reddy had reportedly expressed anger over Aruna in front of his followers. To counter Aruna, Jaipal Reddy is planning to bring Nagam Janardhan Reddy into the Congress. Even, Aruna is making efforts to admit a former TDP MLA into the party.
