Vexed by the Congress state leadership’s indifference to his demand for holding a brainstorming session to discuss ways to strengthen the party in the run-up to the 2014 polls, Rajya Sabha member V Hanumantha Rao has decided to hold the session on his own.
Talking with mediapersons in New Delhi on Saturday, Rao said he would convene the session with party leaders and cadre at Jubilee Hall in Hyderabad on September 8.
According to him, all the PCC office-bearers and former office-bearers, and members of the PCC front organisations will be invited to the meeting.
Apart from Congress MPs, MLAs and MLCs, chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy and PCC chief Botcha Satyanarayana will also be invited.
Rao made it clear that he would hold the meeting in the interest of the Congress and not against any individual leader.
As some leaders were harming the interests of the Congress in the state with their double-dealing, a brainstorming session would be helpful to the Congress leadership to distinguish betrayers from loyalists, he claimed.
