Vijayawada: Congress will hold review meetings on poll trends in Assembly and Parliament elections from May 16 to 19 in Vijayawada.
APCC general secretary Janga Goutam said that AP Congress in-charge Oommen Chandy, AICC secretaries Meyyappan and Christo-pher Tilak, APCC president N. Raghuveera Reddy and other leaders would review the poll trends.
Addressing a Press meet at Vijayawada on Saturday, he said that reviews would be held for every MP seat, including its seven MLA segments.
Recalling the promise of AICC president Rahul Gandhi on special category status to AP state immediately after coming to power and passing SCS resolution by Congress party, he asked all political parties in AP to support Rahul as the future Prime Minister for protecting the interests of AP.
He alleged that the BJP has been using the Election Commission to harass the State Government which is severely objectionable. He said that AP Chief Minister N. Chandra-babu Naidu has been claiming that there is no need for EC’s permission to hold review meetings but wrote a letter to EC, seeking permission. Hence, the EC should give clarification about the norms.
APCC vice president N. Thulasi Reddy has alleged that extremist attacks in Kashmir increased to 170 per cent and violations on the border increased to 1,000 per cent in the BJP Government’s tenure for the past five years and alleged that PM Modi totally failed in tackling terrorists. He claimed that India led by Congress Government defeated Pakistan three times in the years 1948, 1965 and 1971 and refuted the allegations of the BJP against Congress on the surgical strikes....
