Hyderabad: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) Minorities Department Chairman Shaik Abdullah Sohail on Wednesday directed the district units to intensify their activities in view of the forthcoming assembly election.

He was addressing the quarterly review meeting with chairmen of all district units and state office bearers at Gandhi Bhavan.

He said that AICC Minorities Department Chairman Imran Pratapgarhi and Telangana Incharge Farhan Azmi have directed that all district units should actively participate in the Congress party's programmes, especially the ongoing `Haath Se Haath Jodo Yatra’.

Abdullah Sohail asked the party cadre to connect with the people during the holy month of Ramzan. He also asked them to compile district-wise information about minority candidates who were denied subsidized loans, 2BHK units, pensions, and other benefits by the BRS government.

He said Congress would approach all those candidates and aspirants who were deceived by BRS Govt in the last 9 years.

"In the first tenure, the KCR government received loan applications from 1.54 lakh jobless youth. But it did not provide them with a single rupee. Those applications were later thrown in a dustbin. More than 2.16 lakh jobless youth applied for loans when fresh applications were called recently. With a budget of just Rs 120 crore, BRS government could give loans to lucky 12,000 applicants through a draw of lots. The remaining `unlucky’ candidates will get nothing. Congress party will meet those 'unlucky' candidates to tell them that their luck got infected after BRS came to power. To change their luck, they must change the government and bring the Congress party back to power,” he said.

Similarly, the Congress activists would meet the applicants of the 2BHK scheme to expose how BRS Govt cheated them. “We will also give an assurance that they will be provided housing after Congress party comes to power in the next elections,” he said.

Abdullah Sohail said the Minorities Department of Congress party would focus on nearly 40 seats including 15 in the Hyderabad district. He said it has been decided to fill all the posts in the organization in the next month and an aggressive campaign would be launched immediately after Eid-ul-Fitr.

Congress leader also announced that the TPCC Minorities Department would issue chargesheets highlighting the failures of the BRS government. He said the first chargesheet was likely to be released by this month's end
