Hyderabad: In order to address the issues of unemployment and TSPSC paper leak in the state, the Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) will organise a large-scale movement. As part of this, a massive meeting will be held on 4 or 5 May at the Saroor Nagar ground, TPCC president Revanth Reddy said on Tuesday at Gandhi Bhavan. Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi will be a special guest at the meeting, he added.

To address the issue of unemployment and alleged document leaks in the TSPSC exams, Revanth Reddy announced that an unemployment protest would be held at Mahatma Gandhi University in Nalgonda on 21 April, in Khammam on 24 April, and in Adilabad on 26 April.

“We are gearing up for a massive meeting on 4 or 5 May in Saroor Nagar to address the grave issue of unemployment plaguing our state. We will first pay our respects to the statue of Srikantha Chary in LB Nagar and then rally towards the venue. Our esteemed guest, Priyanka Gandhi, will grace the occasion as the chief guest. The Congress party will use this platform to outline our plans for the youth of our country and state, once we come to power at the centre and state level. Priyanka Gandhi is currently busy with the Karnataka election campaign and will arrive in Hyderabad after fulfilling her commitments. The details of her visit will be made clear within the next two days,” said Revanth Reddy.

He added, “This movement is not just for the Congress party but for the fight for the unemployed youth of our state. It is our social responsibility to ensure the participation of 50 lakh students in all our programmes. We urge all unemployed and student unions to join us in this protest.”

‘Modi, KCR failed to provide jobs’

Revanth Reddy said the slogan “Neellu, Nidhulu, and Niyamakalu” was a source of inspiration for the Telangana movement. He highlighted that many young people were motivated by this slogan and actively participated in the movement that led to the creation of the state of Telangana.

However, the TPCC president alleged that the youth in Telangana have been deceived by both Narendra Modi and KCR, as they have failed to provide employment opportunities in the state. He pointed out that Modi had promised to create 2 crore jobs every year but not fulfilled that promise. In fact, Revanth Reddy claimed that the PM cheated the unemployed by not providing them with the promised job opportunities.

Revanth Reddy reminded everyone that during a parliamentary session on 27 July 2022, the Prime Minister himself admitted that out of 22.6 crore job applications, only 7,22,311 jobs were given. This admission by the Prime Minister proves that he failed to keep his promise of creating job opportunities for the youth of the country, he alleged.

Revanth criticises Bandi Sanjay’s promise of 2 lakh jobs in a day

The TPCC chief criticised Bandi Sanjay’s recent promise to provide two lakh jobs in a single day if he comes to power in Telangana. Revanth Reddy expressed disbelief in Sanjay’s statement, questioning whether he knows how many job vacancies there are in any department.

He also accused the present government of failing to provide jobs to every household in Telangana, which they had promised to do so. He further criticised KCR’s statement of providing one job per household and compared it to Bandi Sanjay’s promise of two lakh jobs in a day.

Revanth Reddy pointed out that it is the Congress party that fought for the unemployed, from the public sphere to the Parliament. He suggested that Bandi Sanjay hold his unemployment march near Narendra Modi’s house instead of making empty promises to the public.

Congress party’s efforts in fighting TSPSC paper leak

Revanth Reddy said the TSPSC paper leak is the government’s responsibility and called for a CBI investigation. He expressed his frustration over the fact that the actual culprits are getting away with it, while the blame is being shifted to a couple of employees.

He said, “If the state authorities take up the case, the truth will not come to light as the SIT has previously been used to protect the government’s bigshots. I want to highlight the efforts made by the Congress Party, Youth Congress, and NSUI in fighting against the TSPSC paper leak from the village level.”

He added, “The Governor had requested action against KTR and the relevant commission, but no action was taken. It is my belief that the government’s SIT is working under KTR’s influence and attempting to limit the investigation to just two employees. It is worth noting that the ED’s investigation into the case was initiated due to our struggle.”

Second phase of Hath Se Hath Jodo Yatra to begin on 9 May

Revanth Reddy also announced that the second phase of the Hath Se Hath Jodo Yatra will begin on 9 May from the Jogulamba district. “We are excited to start the next phase of Hath Se Hath Jodo Yatra and connect with more people in our efforts to bring about change,” he said.
