Despite multiple attempts to broker an agreement between ITI management and workers’ union, it has failed.
However, the police nipped the protest in the bud by taking them into custody at the BJP party office itself.
Speaking in a corner meeting at Peddapur village in Medak district, Gandhi alleged that the NDA government is privatising public sector undertakings such as BHEL and Railways.
Reacting to Pilot’s statement, Gehlot cited AICC organization secretary KC Venugopal’s directive asking leaders not to make statements against each other.
The state government had agreed to employ pourakarmikas, currently working on contract basis, as permanent employees in the state cabinet meeting in September.
Earlier in the day, the 80-year-old leader’s coronation ceremony was attended by senior party leaders including Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi and Ashok Gehlot.
Senior leaders Ramesh Chennithala, K Muraleedharan and Kodikunnil Suresh besides Tharoor are eyeing a berth in the 25-member committee, in which 12 members are elected and 11 are nominated.
Tharoor congratulated Kharge on his official assumption of the duties of the Congress president, and wished him success.
Kharge, 80, takes charge of the party at a time when it faces a tough challenge from a formidable BJP led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi which has ousted the Congress from many states.
The elections to the CWC were last held in 1997 at the AICC’s Calcutta plenary session.
New AICC president must address interests of Shivakumar, Siddaramaiah, veteran leaders
The BBMP, which had claimed it would take action against anyone violating the High Court’s direction on flexes and banners, is yet to act.
Sources said Kharge is likely to make some top-ranking appointments in the AICC before the party plenary in order to put together his team for the CWC elections.
Why did he support Tharoor risking even his political career? Raghavan has the answer.
Tharoor's chief election agent Salman Soz has said the facts are damning and the election process in Uttar Pradesh is devoid of credibility and integrity.
While Kharge is considered the firm favourite with his perceived proximity to the Gandhis and a large number of senior leaders backing him, Tharoor has pitched himself as the candidate of change.
The Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) has made elaborate arrangements to ensure the success of the yatra in the State.
Tharoor cast his vote at the Kerala Congress headquarters at Thiruvananthapuram, while Kharge voted at the Karnataka Congress office in Bengaluru.
A State functionary told TNIE, that 'It’s an open secret that the Gandhi family supports Kharge, so we hope most voters from the State will pick him.'
This is against the TPCC’s diktat to all the key leaders to make their presence felt in Munugode until party’s candidate Palvai Sravanthi files her nomination on October 14.
