Will contest next assembly election from Kodangal: Revanth Reddy

Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president A. Revanth Reddy on Tuesday announced that he would contest the next assembly election from the Kodangal constituency. Revanth Reddy thanked Congress cadres for achieving membership of 75,000 in the Kodangal constituency. He said Kodangal has emerged as an ideal constituency for the Congress party not only in Telangana but the entire country.

During a function at Kosgi, he felicitated the Congress leaders and workers who enrolled more than 500 members in their respective polling booths. He also announced that these activists would also be honored by AICC leader Rahul Gandhi.

TPCC Chief said that the previous Congress regime has introduced schemes like crop loan waiver, free electricity for farmers, Aarogyasri, 4% reservation for Muslims, etc. "After getting elected as MLA from Kodangal in 2009, I developed temples, schools, roads, 5,000 sub-stations, Kosgi Bus Depot, and established a school in Maddur on my own land," he said.

Revanth said he was instrumental in setting up junior colleges in Kodangal, Kosgi, and Maddur, and a Degree College was established in Kodangal. "An excellent road network was laid in Kodangal and all villages were provided with a water tank. As an MLA, I brought drinking water to Kodangal at a cost of Rs. 350 crore. A 50-bed hospital was also set up in Kosgi although no other development works were undertaken after TRS won the elections," he added.

Revanth said that the development process came to a halt after TRS won the Kodangal seat in 2018. He said KT Rama Rao had announced adopting Kondangal, but he completely forgot about winning the election. He said that the foundation stone for Kosgi Bus Depot was laid in 2018 by five ministers. But the work has yet not been completed. Even slush was not cleared from Kodangal roads in the last three years. He challenged TRS leaders for an open debate on development in Kodangal.

TPCC Chief said that not a single person was harassed when he represented Kodangal as MLA for nine years. "No one was implicated in false cases," he claimed. Revanth Reddy said he did not visit Kodangal for three years because he wanted people to differentiate between those who worked for them and who betrayed them. "Why only Siddipet and Gajwel are witnessing the development and not Kodangal?" he asked.

He remarked mere distribution of Shadi Mubarak and Kalyana Lakshmi cheques could not be termed as development. TPCC Chief alleged that the followers of TRS MLA attacked a young man in Hakeempet village. "Case of an attempt to murder was booked over a minor incident in Pole Palli," he said.

He warned police officials against misusing their powers. "TRS would not remain in power forever. The Congress party, after winning next elections, would not spare police officials who are targeting Congress workers at the behest of TRS leaders," he warned.

Revanth Reddy said that the local MLA was collecting 'mamool' (ransom) from every person. He said when he was Kodangal MLA, not a single businessman was harassed or forced to pay a single rupee. He asked the party cadre to stay in touch with the people in all villages. "People have now understood that they have been facing utter neglect after TRS won this seat," he remarked. Revanth expressed confidence that he would win from Kodangal seat in the next elections with a huge majority.
