HYDERABAD:After undertaking a padayatra in Telangana to take on the TRS government and rejuvenate his party cadres in the new state, AICC vice-president Rahul Gandhi now appears to be shifting his attention to Andhra Pradesh.
In his bid to resuscitate the Congress from its moribund state in the reorganised AP, Rahul is expected to visit the state either this month-end or in the first week of July.
According to APCC president N Raghuveera Reddy, the AICC vice-president is planning to visit AP soon to expose the failures of the TDP government.
Meanwhile, the Congress will hold dharnas from May 21 to June 8 across the state to pick holes in the policies of the TDP government on the occasion of the first anniversary of bifurcation.
“The Chandrababu Naidu’s government has failed to address the problems of the people. Instead of implementing welfare schemes, the TDP government is involved in massive corruption at every level. We will list out the corruption charges on Naidu and his son on May 27 at Tirupati,” said the APCC chief.
Alleging that the TDP government has failed to implement all its poll promises in a full-fledged manner, former APCC chief Botcha Satyanarayana said that the Congress party would lodge a formal complaint against the TDP with the Election Commission on May 25 ‘for not implementing a single promise completely, whether it is crop loan waiver or dole to unemployed youth’.
“Naidu should apologise to people for his inability to keep his poll promises instead of blowing his own trumpet. People have the right to question the TDP leadership as to why it has failed to honour its poll promises,” said Botcha.
