Hyderabad: Telangana Congress president N Uttam Kumar Reddy on Sunday said that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao might dissolve the Assembly next month and seek fresh elections along with four other States Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram and Chhattisgarh.
In an interaction with party cadre through Facebook, he claimed that KCR has already spoken to Prime Minister Narendra Modi twice on holding early polls for Telangana Assembly and therefore, the Congress party needs to prepare itself for early polls on war footing basis by strengthening the organisation.
Alleging that names of thousands of Congress workers and leaders in the State were being deleted deliberately from electoral rolls, Uttam directed the party workers to check their names in the electoral rolls and also crosscheck whether or not the names of their family members, relatives and neighbours exist in the voters list. He asked the party cadre to visit the municipal office concerned, MROs or check online from Monday onwards to identify the missing names and take required measures for their inclusion.
The TPCC chief said that the Praja Chaitanya Bus Yatra could not be continued due to monsoon and heavy rainfall in various parts of the State. However, he said that the party was planning to complete the bus yatra in the next 15 days. Later, he said the party would launch another mass contact programme through which it would meet people door-to-door.
He reminded that on the occasion of 72nd Independence Day, the Congress party had announced that it would double the Aasara pension amount for all categories of beneficiaries and reduced the eligibility age for old age pension from present 65 years to 58 years.
The TPCC chief said that the Congress party would give due recognition to cadre working hard at the ground level to strengthen the party. He asked them to stay connected with people and understand and redress their grievances.
