Hyderabad, Nov 22 (INN): Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President Capt. Uttam Kumar Reddy said that caretaker Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao has conceded defeat even before polling for Telangana Assembly elections.
Referring to the video clip of KCR’s speech in Nirmal which went viral on social media wherein KCR stated he would comfortably relax if TRS loses elections, Uttam Kumar Reddy said that the statement was nothing but a confession that TRS was losing elections. “Till a few days ago, KCR and his son K. Tarakarama Rao were making claims of winning 100 seats. But after the first round of campaigning, they realised that TRS was losing the elections and it would be the People’s Front which is forming next government in Telangana. Therefore, now both KCR and KTR have started speaking about retirement and taking political ‘sanyas’. As no dictatorial regime could survive in a democracy, people of Telangana have made up their minds to give TRS a humiliating defeat on December 7,” Uttam Kumar Reddy said in a press release today.
Uttam Kumar Reddy said that KCR should start packing his bags to leave Pragathi Bhavan on December 11. “The victory of Congress-led People’s Front is certain. The alliance between Congress, TDP, TJS and CPI has received tremendous response across the Telangana State and people are desperately waiting for December 7 to throw dictatorial and arrogant regime of KCR family into oblivion,” he said.
Meanwhile, the TPCC Chief accorded a warm welcome to Chevella MP Konda Vishweshwar Reddy who left TRS. He said many more leaders from TRS were likely to join the Congress party soon and added that anyone who genuinely loves Telangana would not sail with TRS anymore. “Next elections are between People of Telangana and KCR family. Therefore, everyone who is on people’s side and democracy will support People’s Front and only those who believes in slavery and dictatorship will back TRS,” he said.
Uttam Kumar Reddy also informed that elaborate arrangements have been made for the visit of UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi to Telangana on Friday. This is the first visit of Sonia Gandhi after the formation of Telangana State. She will be accompanied with Congress President Rahul Gandhi. They will land at Begumpet airport by a special aircraft at 5 pm and reach Medchal by 6 pm to address a public meeting. She will also formally unveil the People’s Manifesto at the venue. He appealed the people and also the Congress workers from across the Telangana State to attend the meeting in large numbers.(INN)
