HYDERABAD: Congress in plans to follow the same strategy adopted by the TRS during the Telangana movement—corner the incumbent government by uniting all opposition parties. Interestingly, Congress was at the receiving end of that strategy back then.

The party high command has begun talks with people’s organisations in the state to garner their support ahead of the next general polls. 

All India Congress Committee SC Cell chairman Koppula Raju, a close associate of AICC vice president Rahul Gandhi, along with some other leaders, held talks with Telangana Inti Party leaders- Cheruku Sudhakar and Yennam Srinivas Reddy in New Delhi this week. 

“Congress high command is firm on defeating TRS in the general polls. So, it is holding talks with like-minded parties and organisations. We told them that if they are ready to give more tickets to SCs, STs, BCs and minorities in the next Assembly polls, they can fulfil their wish,” Sudhakar said.
