HYDERABAD: To prove its clout in the political circles, the Congress has decided to mobilise a large number of people for its proposed public meeting to be addressed by AICC vice president Rahul Gandhi at Sangareddy on June 1. The party has named the public meeting “Telangana Praja Garjana”.
The TPCC has firmed up its decision to release a “charge sheet” exposing the failures of the state government, and also its draft manifesto for the next Assembly polls during the meeting, being organised on the occasion of third anniversary of formation of Telangana State.
“During the meeting, we will release a charge sheet against state government pointing out its failures and unfulfilled promises in the past three years,” TPCC chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy said, while addressing media on Thursday.
Reddy, who was summoned to Delhi on Wednesday by Rahul Gandhi, was reportedly asked to intensify agitations against the government. “Our party high command is happy with my performance. Our Delhi bosses asked us to step up agitation programmes on farmer issues,” Uttam said.
The TPCC chief claimed that Telangana is now second in the list of states with high number of farmers’ suicides. Earlier, while addressing TPCC executive committee meeting, Uttam alleged that TRS was acting as a secret ally of BJP.
