Revanth asks for Palamuru clean sweep to boost Congress

Only Congress can deliver justice to the district: TPCC chief

HYDERABAD: TPCC chief A. Revanth Reddy on Tuesday exhorted the Congress cadre and new entrants to work hard to secure all 14 seats in the erstwhile Palamuru area, saying that “only the Congress can deliver justice to the district”.

Addressing a group of party workers who joined the party from the BRS and BJP, from Gadwal, he said, “The party will take up all pending projects on a priority basis, on a war footing, and finish them. It was the Congress which constructed the Jurala, Nettampadu, Koilsagar, Srisailam and Kalwakurthy lift irrigation projects.”

He said that the woes of people in the district have not been addressed despite Telangana getting statehood.

“The SC/ST Declaration made in Chevella will bring light to the lives of Dalits and tribals. We will give ₹4,000 pension to the old, widows, handicapped, beedi workers, single women, toddy tappers, handloom workers, AIDS victims, filarial and dialysis patients once we come to power,” Revanth Reddy said.

“The ₹2 lakh loan waiver will be done and two lakh vacant posts will be filled within a year. Gas cylinders will be given for ₹500. The party will increase the health insurance cover under Aarogyasri to ₹5 lakhs and provide ₹5 lakhs to the homeless for the construction of houses,” the TPCC chief said.

Those who joined the party include former market committee chairman Venkat Rami Reddy, retired MEO Satyanarayana, MPTC Shiva Reddy, Easwar, former MPPs Govind Naidu, sarpanch Sunitha and ward members.

Revanth Reddy told them to expose the failures of the BRS with the slogan ‘Tiragabadadam-Tarimikodadam’.
