NIZAMABAD: AICC in-charge for Telangana, RC Khuntia, called upon Congress party workers in the State to get ready for the upcoming elections to urban local bodies (ULB).
Speaking at a party meeting in Nizamabad on Wednesday, Khuntia said, “TPCC has devised a plan for the municipal elections. It will provide you (party workers) will all assistance you need to win them.” He claimed the TRS had won all recent elections with “money power”.
