Cong high command seems to have forgotten state unit
Hyderabad: The All-India Congress Committee appears to have forgotten about the Andhra Pradesh Pradesh Congress Committee. While the state leaders like former PCC chief Botcha Satyanarayana, Chiranjeevi, Undavalli Arun Kumar, Anam Ramanarayan Reddy and Sailjanath have gone into hibernation, AICC leaders, including party general secretary in charge of AP affairs Digvijay Singh and RC Kunthia, have also not bothered to visit the state after bifurcation.
The AICC, which is focusing its attention on Telangana and has sent central leaders to the state, at least four times since bifurcation, has not even called the AP Congress leaders to Delhi.
APCC president N Raghuveera Reddy seems to be the only man who once in a while holds some meeting of the party here and there and lashing at the TDP government. Though AICC vice-president Rahul Gandhi had some time back asked the APCC president to strengthen the party, lack of coordination appears to be haunting the state Congress unit.
According to Raghuveera Reddy, a meeting of general secretaries of the state is likely to be convened soon to chalk out an action plan to strengthen the party and take up activities which can take them closer to people. Reddy said the Congress would start its fight against the TDP from Tirupati by contesting the by-election.
He also exuded confidence that the senior leaders would not quit the party as was being speculated. He said he was in close contact with all senior leaders and soon all of them would play active role in rejuvenating the state unit.
According to Anam Ramanarayana Reddy, the Congress central leadership has been going slow in Andhra Pradesh because the party feels that it should give some more time for the people as they are angry with the Congress for dividing the state.
As of now no Congress leader is going to Delhi and only the PCC chief is in touch with the central leadership.
