Some top leaders of the state Congress are trying to misguide AICC president Sonia Gandhi on the Telangana issue with false claims on the party’s performance in the just-held cooperative society elections, party MP Palvai Govardhan Reddy has alleged in an indirect dig at chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy.

“At a time when our high command is finalising its decision on the Telangana issue, some top leaders of the party in the state are coming in the way of it by saying that the Congress has fared well in the cooperative polls even in the light of Telangana sentiment. These leaders are  trying to take credit for the party’s win. They should be ashamed of this sort of claim,” he said at press conference he addressed along with KR Amos, MLC, at the CLP office here on Thursday.

Firing a broadside at the chief minister for reporting to the Congress high command that Telangana sentiment was strong only in four districts and the TRS failed to win in the cooperative polls, Govardhan Reddy said  cooperative polls did not reflect popular mood since only a small proportion of farmers in every village took part in these polls.

Coming down heavily on Kiran Kumar Reddy and PCC chief Botcha Satyanarayana, the Telangana leader said.
