Reports regarding the appointment of Kanugolu as the CM’s advisor come two weeks after Siddaramaiah took oath as the chief minister of the state, on May 20. 

Reports suggest that a formal order regarding the appointment of Kanugolu, along with a possible cabinet rank has already been initiated.  The decision is yet to be communicated through official channels.

“A proposal has been sent for him (Kanugolu) to be made the CM’s advisor,” said an aide to the Chief Minister, according to a report by The Print. 

In May 2022, Sonia Gandhi added Kanugolu to the party’s 2024 Lok Sabha election task force which also included the likes of P Chidambaram, Mukul Wasnik, KC Venugopal, Ajay Maken, Randeep Singh Surjewala, and Jairam Ramesh. 

Kanugolu became a part of the Congress party’s ecosystem after seasoned strategist Prashant Kishore declined an offer from the party. Kanugolu was associated with Prashant Kishore for political strategy. After splitting away from Kishore, Kanugolu worked with DMK chief MK Stalin and worked on his “Namakku Naame” campaign ahead of the 2016 Assembly polls. 

In 2018, Kanugolu worked with the then BJP Chief Amit Shah in Delhi. With the Bharatiya Janata Party, Kanugolu worked in several state election campaigns such as Karnataka, Uttarakhand, Uttar Pradesh, etc. 

For the 2023 Karnataka Assembly Elections, Kanugolu worked closely with the Karnataka Congress high command to bring the party back in power. One of the most effective ways to strengthen the Congress position in the state was picking candidates on the basis of a survey conducted by his team.
