HYDERABAD: Digvijaya Singh, AICC general secretary in charge of Telangana Congress affairs, has a word of advice to the leaders of his party state leadership: do not confine to Gandhi Bhavan but reach out to people.
Addressing party's elected representatives here on Friday, Singh suggested to TPCC chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy not to just confine himself to Gandhi Bhavan but to reach out to people.
He advised party leaders not to be bothered by defections from the Congress but give space for new leaders to emerge.
"The party will not lose anything if some leaders defect," he said and accused the TRS of purchasing leaders of other parties with money earned through corrupt practices.
On land acquisition, Singh said the state government should implement Land Acquisition Act 2013 rather than GO 123. "I suggest that the party leaders take the issue to court," he said.
Earlier, Digvijaya Singh paid tributes to the late chief minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy on the latter's birth anniversary at Indira Bhavan on Friday.
Recalling the services of Rajasekhara Reddy, Singh said Reddy was a fighter and committed towards the ideology of the Congress. He rendered yeoman service as chief minister and implemented various welfare and developmental schemes for people, Singh said but lamented that both the successor states AP and Telangana dropped the welfare and developmental programmes of YSR.
