HYDERABAD: The maiden meeting of the Congress Coordination Committee, chaired by the AICC general secretary Ghulam Nabi Azad on Thursday covered the entire gamut of political issues confronting the party and state government.
According to the PCC president Botcha Satyanarayana, the meeting discussed issues including Telangana, byelections and cabinet expansion. The issues would be discussed further in the next meeting to be held on January 21, he said while briefing media persons after the meeting.
"Being the first meeting of the Coordination Committee, it was a very informal one and there was no specific agenda as such. The focus was on ensuring coordination between the government and party and minimise the scope for any communication gap," he said.
The meeting discussed byelections in Telangana region and possible bypolls for 17 seats in coastal Andhra districts.
When asked if Chiranjeevi and his MLAs would be taken into the cabinet, Botcha said it was not a decision to be taken at the committee level.
