Hyderabad: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president N Uttam Kumar Reddy on Saturday said that the Congress party would have a clear edge over all others in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections as the polls would be fought primarily between Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Addressing party leaders from Nagarkurnool, Mahbubnagar, Khammam, Mahabubabad, Nalgonda and Bhongir Lok Sabha constituencies in separate meetings on the second day of brainstorming, Uttam said that the party cadre must convey to the people and convince them that the next Lok Sabha elections are between the Congress and the BJP and they should vote to make Rahul Gandhi the next Prime Minister of India.
He said there would be a huge difference between the issues that dominated last Assembly elections and those which would be raised in the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls. Stating that there were multiple reasons including EVM tampering and deficiencies in poll processes for the Congress party's defeat in Assembly elections, he asked them to be extra vigilant and smart to win Lok Sabha elections.
Uttam alleged that the TRS has contaminated the entire election process in Telangana. He said the flow of money and liquor among voters by the TRS was so high during Assembly elections that it corrupted young minds and many people mistook elections for a season when liquor and money is served for free. As a responsible political party, he said that the Congress party and its cadre has a responsibility to stop this trend.
The TPCC chief directed the DCC, city presidents and also contested candidates to take the issue of voters' enrolment very seriously. He said the electoral rolls used in last Assembly elections were defective and incomplete. This time, he said all Congress leaders and workers must ensure that electoral rolls at their polling booth levels are updated through effective coordination with election authorities.
AICC Telangana Incharge RC Khuntia, in his speech, asked the Congress workers to take party's manifesto to people in an aggressive manner. “The Minimum Income Guarantee scheme proposed by Rahul Gandhi is revolutionary. It will help all poor families in the country irrespective of their caste, religion or region. It is our duty to explain this scheme to all poor people in Telangana State and convince them to vote for the Congress candidates,” he said.
CLP leader Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, Saleem Ahmed, Srinivasan Krishnan, Madhu Yashki Goud, A Sampath Kumar, A Vamshichand Reddy, G Chinna Reddy, Nandi Yellaiah, Ponnam Prabhakar, J Kusum Kumar, Mallu Ravi and other senior leaders attended the meetings.
