Hyderabad- TPCC president Revanth Reddy accused the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) and the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) of attempting to obstruct the Congress party’s upcoming Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting scheduled for September 16, 2023.
According to Revanth Reddy, the Congress had faced significant challenges in securing a venue for the CWC meeting, alleging that both the BRS and BJP had collaborated to thwart their efforts. The Congress party approached defense officials to utilize the parade grounds for the meeting, but their request was denied, citing a conflicting BJP event organized by Telangana BJP president Kishan Reddy at the same location.
Efforts to secure Gachibowli Stadium for the meeting were also met with a refusal from the Sports Authority. Revanth Reddy went on to claim that Minister KTR had allegedly used his influence to intimidate hotel management, preventing the Congress party from utilizing the Taj Krishna hotel for the CWC meeting.
Expressing his frustration, Revanth Reddy criticized these tactics as “petty politics” and emphasized that the entire state of Telangana was closely observing the situation. He revealed that the Congress party had explored alternative options, such as an empty space in Tukkuguda, only to be denied permission due to land-related issues. However, he praised the generosity of Tukkuguda farmers who stepped up by donating land to the Congress party.
Revanth Reddy asserted that Congress leaders were preparing for the CWC meeting with great determination and stated that their resolve remained unwavering. He called for cooperation from the government, especially in the event of a visit by Sonia Gandhi, the figure instrumental in granting Telangana statehood. Revanth Reddy criticized Chief Minister KCR, claiming that he lacked the understanding needed to protect democratic values.
Despite the obstacles posed by Kishan Reddy, KCR, and others, Revanth Reddy expressed confidence that the Congress party would successfully conduct the CWC meeting. He also revealed that Sonia Gandhi was set to launch five schemes at the Vijayabheri Sabha on September 17, 2023, an event expected to draw a substantial crowd of youths, farmers, and unemployed individuals in Telangana.
