Welcome Rahul Gandhi But Conditions Apply: Harish Rao
Hyderabad: TPCC planned partya��s Vice President Rahul Gandhia��s huge public meeting in Sanga Reddy, a day before Telangana formation day, on June 1st.
But it received a serious and sharp warning from Telangana Irrigation Minister Harish Rao who said that he will welcome Rahul Gandhi to Telangana but on one conditions.
As per him, Rahul Gandhi should talk about the development TRS party has achievedu in these three years and warned him that party wona��t spare if anything goes wrong in Rahula��s speech.
Neighbouring State, Karnataka, which is ruled by the Congress, is praising our government. So Rahul should also be ready to praise our good deeds, Harish said.
Sangareddy has a special significance for the Congress since Indira Gandhi adopted Medak constituency after Emergency. She addressed a huge meeting at Sangareddy in 1979 in run up to 1980 elections.
TPCC president Uttam Kumar Reddy and other leaders hope that the magic will work again and bring them to power if they work with dedication and commitment.
Rahul Gandhi will certainly ignite the past memories on June 1st at Ambedkar Stadium. 2019 elections will be crucial for the Congress party both at centre and in the state. Rahula��s public meeting will launch the Congress campaign for the elections two years away in right earnest. The party has to first overcome the divided loyalties and group politics. The unity of purpose that was visible in 1979-80 when all the leaders worked for Indira Gandhi with single-minded devotion has to be revived. The group politics which have been the bane of the Congress have to be buried in order to Face well-entrenched Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) and the resurgent BJP.
