Uttam Reddy has been conducting tours to rejuvenate the party at the grassroots level under directions from Rahul Gandhi.
‘Party becoming stronger with each passing day’
While welcoming the entry of political veteran Nagam Janardhan Reddy into the Congress party, party MLC Ponguleti Sudhakar Reddy said the ongoing induction of leaders from various political parties into the grand-old party proved that the party was becoming stronger with each passing day in the State.
“But, the responsibility of achieving unity between the old-timers and newcomers in the party lies with the TPCC leadership,” he commented, while addressing media here on Wednesday.
The Congress leader demanded that the State government take effective measures to keep a tight rein on companies, which sell spurious seeds in the State.After attending the TS Assembly Assurances Committee meeting held here, Reddy said all the House Committees in the State Legislature are not meeting regularly, to discuss issues relating to their subjects.
