TPCC chief Ponnala Lakshmaiah this morning reflected upon the just concluded nominations process in Telangana. He has announced that the tie up with CPI and the situation of rebel congress candidates in few constituencies will be resolved very soon. The Congress Chief Sonia Gandhi will participate in a huge meeting in Karimnagar on the 16th, he declared. Here is what he spoke…
“1400 applications came for 119 seats, how can every one be accommodated in the situation? There will be disappointments, there will be protesters, rebels… we will resolve the situation by pacifying them somehow, our central leader Jairam Ramesh has just arrived to handle the problem, all the rebels will withdraw their nominations within the time limit, the seats given to CPI as part of the understanding will also be cleared by then…”
“The aim of Congress is to establish self governing, good governance oriented, stable government, which ensures social justice and self respect in Telangana. Future Congress government will constitute a special fund with Hundred Crores for the welfare of the families of Telangana martyrs, Congress is the only party that gave proper respect to JAC leaders and martyrs families in ticket distribution, How can TRS claim that they are the true representatives of Telangana struggle, they gave tickets to people who fought against Telangana and to those who caused the deaths of Telangana youth, When Congress refused tickets to such betrayers, how TRS could give tickets to them? Can KCR say that their characters are changed now just because they are wearing different party colors? At least he could have given ticket to a place where there is a possibility for them to win, what is the use of giving a seat where a strong Congress candidate is standing? This is gross injustice by KCR to the sacrifices made by the martyrs, he should have given assembly seats from places he or his family is contesting for, so as to make sure that they have proper support, the public are watching everything… they will respond properly to such political games in this elections…”
“Congress chief Sonia Gandhi will attend a meeting in Karimnagar on the 16th afternoon, the party manifesto will be released on the 12th with Jairam Ramesh participating” announced Ponnala in conclusion.
