Dissatisfaction brewing over the latest attempt of TPCC working president to gatecrash Pragathi Bhavan
Hyderabad: Congress party senior leaders are voicing concerns over the future of the grand old party in Telangana as an individual-centric activity within the party would spoil the image. The senior leaders said that Congress, along with other political parties and unions, were supporting the ongoing RTC strike. At this juncture, how did TPCC working president Mr Revanth Reddy alone take up the agitation by attempting to enter the CM camp office, Pragathi Bhavan? Such individual-centric activity will give more political advantage to the Chief Minister, Mr K Chandrashekhar Rao, said Congress leaders.
CLP leader Bhatti Vikramarka, former PCC president V Hanumantha Rao, former MP Madhu Yashki Goud and AICC secretaries, Vamshichand Reddy and Sampath Kumar, Kisan Congress vice-president, Kodanda Reddy discussed the present situation of the party.
The senior leaders also expressed doubts over the working style of TPCC chief, Uttam Kumar Reddy.
"RTC JAC has announced an action plan. All the political parties and unions are part of it. But, Revanth Reddy without consulting anyone in Congress called for a protest dharna at Pragathi Bhavan. Uttam Kumar Reddy and Revanth Reddy are not informing other party leaders and cadres to participate in the protest dharnas," observed the Congress leaders.
AICC secretaries and VH came to the CLP office to meet Bhatti Vikramarka on Tuesday. The leaders discussed several issues at length at the CLP office.
"Over 48,000 RTC employees are on strike for the past 18 days. RTC JAC announced the action plan till October 30. Congress party is supporting the strike by RTC employees. How can Revanth Reddy take up separate agitation on his own? Generally, the Congress party informs all the leaders and cadres about any meeting or agitation by sending messages. But no one was informed about the protests at Pragati Bhavan. Mr Uttam Kumar Reddy made a mere announcement a day before. The Congress party gives top priority to democracy. Individuals on their own can't make decisions. We have to make decisions collectively," said a senior Congress leader.
