Congress to boycott TRS media, highlight failures'

The party has decided to split into 10 groups, each headed by a senior leader.

Hyderabad: The TPCC has decided to strengthen the party at the organisational-level and also take up mass agitations against the ‘failures’ of the two-year-old TRS government.

Addressing the day-long extended state executive and coordination committee meetings of the TPCC held at the Gandhi Bhavan, AICC general-secretary Digvijay Singh asked the party leaders to prepare plans of action to highlight the TRS government’s failures.

The party has decided to split into 10 groups, each headed by a senior leader. Each group will be given a district where the party will take up mass agitations as well as steps to strengthen its base.

All these groups will act independently and take up issues concerning that particular district with overall coordination from the TPCC. The party’s state executive also adopted a resolution directed Congress leaders and cadre to boycott Namaste Telangana newspaper since it was only promoting the TRS and maligning the Congress.

Another resolution asking the party leaders not to entertain ‘T News’, the TV channel by giving interviews or take part in analysis programmes, as it only promotes the TRS and the family members of Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao. Among the other resolutions adopted are not to readmit leaders who ditched the Congress for other parties.

Mr Singh later told newsmen that the Congress, being the main Opposition party in the state and being responsible for creation of Telangana state, has more responsibility towards the people of the state and will take up mass agitations to raise all people-centric issues.

He said that the TRS government has not been able to implement the promises it made to the people, including providing 12 per cent reservations each to Muslims and tribals.
