HYDERABAD: Former PCC president V. Hanumantha Rao said that the ‘Hath Se Hath Jodo Abhiyan,’ which will be launched by AICC general secretary Priyanka Gandhi on January 26 will strengthen the party cadre and boost equality.
Speaking to reporters here on Saturday, Hanumantha Rao pointed out that the Bharat Jodo Yatra of party leader Rahul Gandhi, who had called for spreading love and affection, had received overwhelming response from all sections of the people and the response was worrying rivals.
He said the the previous government had allotted assigned land to SC, ST and BC community beneficiaries but the BRS government had forcibly taken it away. In the open market, each acre of land commanded `2 crore, he said. He said realtors who had built on the land should pay the ousted families `1 crore per acre.
