HYDERABAD: Congress state president A. Revanth Reddy predicted that Assembly elections would be held in Telangana by March next. Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao would dissolve the Assembly in December and would not set up any front, he claimed.
Revanth Reddy alleged that BJP leader Subramanya Swamy prepared a corruption list of Chandrashekar Rao. In Jharkhand, Chandrashekar Rao expressed his inability in setting up any front, he said. “There is no use for Chandrashekar Rao’s state tours,” he opined.
The TPCC president addressed party activists at meetings in Medchal, Quthbullapur and Kukatpally Assembly constituencies on Saturday. Speaking at various meetings, Revanth Reddy said 2.50 lakh government jobs would be provided within one year after the Congress came to power. He said not only Telangana state, the entire country would be in safe hands, if Rahul Gandhi became the Prime Minister.
"I assured the AICC of 30 lakh digital membership in Telangana state and achieved it," Revanth Reddy said. He reiterated that if 40 lakh party members brought 80 lakh votes, Congress would get 90 MLA seats. “Activists are the main pillars of the party. Earlier the Congress was a leaders’ party, but now it will be an activists’ party,” he said.
He said importance would be given to the party activists in implementation of welfare schemes. Posts would be allotted to those who worked hard for the Congress, he said. Revanth Reddy said Chief Minister's official residence Pragathi Bhavan would be converted as Dr B.R. Ambedkar knowledge centre on the day one of the Congress government.
