Congress Peddapalli Lok Sabha candidate MP Vivek, Ex minister and Manthani assembly candidate D Sridhra Babu have toured Manthani and Mahamuttaram areas as part of their poll campaign. “Congress party showed great commitment in realizing the dream of Telangana, the party should be supported by one and all in this election,” said MP Vivek. Minister Shridhar Babu has said that “MP Vivek returned to Congress as a gentleman after the party gave Telangana, but KCR went back from his promise to merge TRS with Congress. Support the people and party who have shown commitment and values in public life,” he said.
MP Vivek has also said that the Congress were dissuaded from going ahead with the Telangana bill by Seemandhra favoring TDP and BJP, the BJP directly advised Congress to not introduce the Bill, but Sonia Gandhi stuck to his plan, reminded one and all that she gave an open promise to the Telangana public about sanctioning Telangana and she would keep her promise no matter what, she went ahead and ensured the support of 272 MPs and gave us our Telangana. At the same time, KCR on several occasions, announced that he would merge TRS with Congress as soon as Telangana is announced, when Telangana finally became a reality, he showed his true colors and went back on his promise, who is a person of value here? Whom should we support? I could not forget my own word that I would come back to Congress after Telangana is sanctioned, and I came back, Support Congress now to ensure golden Telangana,” said MP Vivek.
Minister Shridhar Babu too addressed the public explaining the right effect Vivek’s shifting to TRS had on Congress and praised MP Vivek for coming back to Congress despite KCR changed his stance.
