Hyderabad: In an appeal to the Telangana people, the Congress Working Committee (CWC) on Sunday said the party would unveil six key guarantees to the people of Telangana building on declarations in Warangal for farmers, Hyderabad for youth, and Khammam for the elderly.

The CWC earnestly appealed to the people of Telangana to cast their votes for the Congress in the upcoming Assembly and Parliament elections. It is time to reignite the dream of a Bangaaru Telangana, and deliver the future that the people of Telangana deserve.

When the Congress party was in power, they formed Telangana keeping in mind people's aspiration on jobs, water and funds. Yet, nine years after Telangana was formed, the CWC noted with anguish that the promise of Golden Telangana lies shattered, betrayed by governments both in Delhi and Hyderabad. The dream for which people fought for Telangana has remained unfulfilled. The resources of the new state, meant for its people, have instead been siphoned off by those in power. Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao and his family have established family rule and are deaf to the voices of the people. Instead of the promised golden future, they have dragged the state into the past by ruling like the Nizams.

The Congress party has embarked on a mass contact programme against this misrule, starting with the Bharat Jodo Yatra, when Shri Rahul Gandhi covered 405 km across 8 districts. Tens of thousands of people shared their experiences of the governments of the BJP in Delhi and BRS in Hyderabad, both enriching a chosen few at the cost of the poor, farmers, Dalits, Adivasis and minorities.

Farmers who battle risks of price and weather to make ends meet have been further let down by poor insurance schemes, which have forced them into debt. The Dharani portal is taking away land rights dating back to Smt. Indira Gandhi’s era, especially those of Adivasis, minorities, Dalits and OBCs. Small entrepreneurs shut shop due to lack of support in a market tilted towards a few large corporates.

The CWC alleged that Irrigation projects like Kaleshwaram have become income sources for BRS-affiliated contractors, draining huge resources but providing little water. The Modi government’s relentless privatisation of public sector companies is reducing opportunities for aspirational and hard-working youth. At the same time, the state government’s privatisation of schools, educational institutes and hospitals is depriving people of affordable education and health.
