Venue of Tukkuguda Congress meeting named after Rajiv Gandhi

HYDERABAD: The venue in Tukkuguda where the Congress will hold its Vijaya Bheri meeting on September 17 has been named after Rajiv Gandhi.

Announcing this at an online meeting with DCC chiefs, TPCC president A. Revanth Reddy called on them to hold meetings at the mandal level on September 11 in order to mobilise people for the mega meeting. He said people should be mobilised from all 35,000 booths in the state.

Setting out the schedule, he said a meeting will be held with parliamentary observers and TPCC vice-presidents on Monday. They will subsequently hold meetings in the parliamentary segments from September 12 to 14 and coordinate with district presidents.

Sonia Gandhi will announce the five guarantees of the party during the meeting, which will follow the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting. On September 18, national leaders will fan out to the 119 constituencies along with posters of the five guarantees.

Apart from giving ‘guarantee cards’ to every household, the party leaders will have lunch with the locals. They have been asked to hold press meets and explain the five guarantees to the people from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on September 18, Reddy said.

AICC Telangana in-charge Manikrao Thakre called for efforts to make the meeting a success. Chargesheets on the BRS and BJP governments should also be taken forward with the slogan of

‘Tiragabadadam-Tarimikodadam’, he said.

Earlier addressing those who joined the party from Kodangal, Bomraspet and Daultabad constituencies at his residence here, Reddy said, “I question the BRS leaders who claim to have developed Kodangal to show what they have done till date. K.T. Rama Rao promised to adopt Kodangal but failed to keep his word. None of the promises have been kept.”

He said the Narayanpet-Kodangal lift irrigation project had been shelved and junior colleges had not been set up in Bomraspet and Daultabad, despite assurances. Work on the Vikarabad-Tandur railway line is yet to begin, he said.

Stating that Kodangal constituency has been divided into two parts, he wondered why it was not made a revenue division.
