Chief Minister A. Revanth Reddy is likely to tour districts in January 2024 to tighten up the administrative machinery and apprise officials about the priorities of the newly-formed Congress government, sources said.

The task crucial both because the Congress government expects to implement the Six Guarantees within 100 days and the party must gear up for the for the Lok Sabha elections in April 2024, sources said.

He may also opt for a large-scale reshuffle of IAS and IPS officials before the tours, they said.

While Revanth Reddy’s schedule will be finalised after the end of the Legislative Assembly session next week — when the House will convene on December 14 to elect a Speaker and then run proceedings for about a week — sources indicated January 2024 the most likely period for Reddy’s tours.

Before embarking on tours, Reddy would also hold a conference with collectors and SP-rank police officials of all districts after the Assembly

session, to instruct them on the implementation of Congress guarantees, delivering transparent governance and maintaining law and order.

Reddy has also laid special focus on the Singareni Collieries Company Limited (SCCL) employees’ union elections, which are scheduled for December 27. The area covers the Lok Sabha constituencies of Peddapalli, Khammam and Warangal.

While the BRS-affiliated Telangana Boggu Gani Karmika Sangham (TBGKS) won the polls in October 2017, the Congress is now aiming to wrest the union elections, having swept the Assembly polls in the coal belt region. The polls will see 39,748 workers (voters) cast their votes.

The Singareni area covers 11 Assembly constituencies in erstwhile Adilabad, Khammam, Warangal and Karimnagar districts and the Congress won nine of them; Kothagudem went to the Congress ally CPI and the BRS’s Kova Laxmi won the Asifabad seat. In 2018, the  Congress had won six.
