Hyderabad: Pradesh Congress Committee president N. Uttam Kumar Reddy hinted on Tuesday that some Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) MLAs will join the Congress most likely after the Sankranti festival.
Speaking to the media after a Congress meeting in Gandhi Bhavan attended by AICC secretary R.C. Kunthia, Mr Reddy claimed that even if elections are held now, the Congress will get 70 Assembly seats, according to some survey reports of the ruling TRS.
He also indicated that there would be changes in the PCC now that Mr Rahul Gandhi had been made AICC president.
Mr Reddy said Mr Gandhi would likely address a public meeting in erstwhile Warangal district in January-end or February, which will focus on self respect for Dalits, Girijan and BCs.
He said Tuesday's meeting of senior members of the party discussed the probability of the Centre bringing the Delimi-tation of Assembly Segments Bill.
The state unit will abide by whatever decision the Congress party as a whole takes on the issue.
Replying to a question, Mr Reddy said his party has already lodged a complaint with the AICC on the remarks of Karnataka transport minister H.M. Revanna praising Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao and his government.
Referring to the supply of free power 24X7, launched by the TRS government, Mr Reddy said it was made possible because of the 10 years of Congress rule both at the Centre and in the state, else how can there be surplus power as the TRS government had made no effort to enhance the generation.
