Hyderabad: Congress president Rahul Gandhi will visit Telangana on a two-day tour from August 13, for the first time after becoming president of the party.
Speaking to media persons at Gandhi Bhavan on Thursday, Telangana Congress president N Uttam Kumar Reddy said that besides participating in the Praja Chaitanya Bus Yatra in Ranga Reddy district, Rahul Gandhi would also address a series of meetings during his two-day tour in the city.
Rahul’s visit to Telangana was due for months and the earlier programmes which were announced were postponed as the Congress supremo was preoccupied with other engagements. The PCC has planned Dalits, BCs and STs public meetings with him.
He was also invited to participate in the State Formation Day celebrations. Earlier, Uttam Kumar Reddy formally launched the TPCC’s IT Cell and announced the appointment of Kalakuntla Madan Mohan Rao as its chairman. He said that the IT Cell would play a major role in creating a link between the party, leaders and cadres.
He said that the Congress party was trying to make utmost use of technology to enable its cadre to reach the people with party's policies and ideology. Further, he said the IT Cell would help in exposing the failures of TRS and BJP Governments.
Speaking on the occasion, Madan Mohan Rao said that the IT Cell would act as a bridge between the party and cadre through an innovative programme Congress Human Resources Management System (CHARMS). He said the new system would further strengthen the network for dissemination of information from the Congress party to the common people.
