Much to the chagrin of PCC chief Botcha Satyanarayana, AICC vice-president Rahul Gandhi is understood to have asked his party leaders to strictly follow the norm of ‘one man, one post’ at all levels in the party.
On the concluding day of the two-day conference of CLP leaders and PCC chiefs in Delhi on Saturday, the AICC second-in-command asked the party leaders, without naming anyone, to strictly follow this norm hereafter.
When asked about this, chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy did not give a direct answer and said that the conference had discussed the Jaipur Declaration at length. All the decisions taken by the party leadership at the Chintan Shivir concerning organisational matters, would be implemented one after another, he declared.
Following Rahul’s calling for stricter implementation of ‘one man, one post’ norm, now all eyes are on PCC chief Botcha who is also holding a ministerial post.
Botcha said Rahul would visit the state soon as part of the countrywide tour planned to know the problems of the common man and strengthen the Congress at the grass roots level.
Botcha, who spoke to mediapersons soon after the completion of the conference, disclosed that he, along with the chief minister, discussed the Telangana issue in detail with Rahul during the conference and exuded confidence that the party high command would resolve the issue expeditiously.
