Hanamkonda: Chanting unity mantra, senior Congress leaders have asked their party men to bury the hatchet and make collective efforts to checkmate TRS in 2019 elections.
Senior leader V Hanumantha Rao addressing an impressive gathering of Congress workers at ‘Indiramma Rythu Bata’ on Friday in Hanamkonda, said ‘It is not the time to fight over the issue of the party’s Chief Minister candidate, but to fight the ruling TRS and make efforts to come to power in 2019’.
After winning the election, the party leadership would decide who would be the CM, he said. His remarks came in the backdrop of Nalgonda MLA Komatireddy Venkat Reddy’s recent assertion that he would be the next CM of Telangana if the party wins elections.
Hanumantha Rao suggested that those really worked for the party should be given tickets in the next elections. The AICC vice-president, Rahul Gandhi, has recognised the importance of the party grassroot level workers and their contributions would duly be rewarded.
The TPCC president, N Uttam Kumar Reddy, hitting at the ruling party said the poor quality governance by the TRS was being reflected in its entire works. Like the government the works of Kaleshwaram project were also of poor quality and the collapse of its tunnel proves the fact.
And the same was the case with Bathukamma sarees. The government, which supplied poor and cheap quality sarees to women, was unnecessarily blaming Congress, when women staged protests over the quality of the sarees. Congress has no role in their protests, he clarified.
While describing Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao as a trickster, he asked the party workers to go into the public spreading the message. The failures of the ruling party in delivering 2014 election promises must be explained to the people, he stated.
Of the 3.5 lakh dalits in the State, not even one per cent of them were given three acres land, he added. Uttam Kumar Reddy expressed dismay at the non-release of Indiramma housing bills by the government and said the bills would be cleared after Congress comes to power in 2018 while reiterated the promise of additional room for the beneficiaries.
The TPCC chief also reiterated the promise of offering one time crop loan waiver of Rs 2 lakh, pay Rs 3,000 stipend per month to unemployed youth and filling up all the vacancies in government departments.
AICC secretary RC Khuntia said ‘Indiramma Rythu Bata’ was a great success and asked workers and leaders to be united in serving the interests of the party.
AICC SC Cell Chairman K Raju and TPCC leader Bhatti Vikramarka told workers to actively engage in social media and make use of Shakti App designed by the party to reach out to the people.
Meanwhile, the programme has left the party ranks here in an upbeat mood. ‘The response from the cadre clearly indicates good days ahead for the party. Everyone in the state vexed up with Congress rule,’ said district Congress president N Rajender Reddy and city wing working president Rajanala Srihari.
