Hyderabad: The Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) on Saturday finalised the agenda for the three-day meeting being held from January 20 to 22nd to discuss and finalise the strategy to strengthen the party in Telangana. The TPCC will discuss about the preparations for the next Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections, membership drive, the promises made by the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) government and how it had failed to implement seven-hour power supply and water supply for irrigation to districts like Nalgonda and Khammam from Nagarjuna Sagar.
Senior Congress leader Shabbir Ali said the party would organise division-wise meetings from January last week. Besides focussing on intensifying membership drive in GHMC limits, workers’ meetings would be held at division-levels and also the process of selection of best candidates would be initiated.
The Congress leaders, in a meeting, have finalised 11 talking points for the three-day session. All senior leaders including present and former office bearers, MPs and legislators have been divided into eight groups of 16 members each. These groups would participate in discussions on specific agenda for two hours each. They would be giving their suggestions orally or in written form. These sessions would be attended by AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh and other Central leaders.
The group discussions would be held for two days on January 20 and 21. On the third day, on January 22, Digvijay Singh will meet intellectuals and other personalities from different sections of society to elicit their views and suggestions on how to strengthen the Congress in Telangana. He said so far, as against the target of 20 lakh members, nearly 19.21 lakh membership forms were distributed in 10 districts of Telangana.
Of them, about 14 lakh members had already been enrolled and their data was being computerised. Various DCCs had sent computerised data of nearly 4.5 lakh members to the party headquarters at Gandhi Bhavan along with membership fee of Rs 5 each, he added. TPCC working presidents Uttam Kumar Reddy and Jana Reddy said the TRS government had failed to implement the poll promises. He said Telangana farmers suffered huge losses due to erratic power supply and many of them committed suicide.
