“Telangana is part our agenda and we will continue to check all efforts turn fruitful to get the separate state for the region” says AICC president Sonia Gandhi in her Karimnagar campaign meeting on Tuesday. The much debated T-issue which didn’t even find place in the State Congress Manifesto, was again seen in the speech of her mentioning that the party fully supports the cause and neither its party nor its leaders are against it. She visiting the region to woo voters in the coming elections is certainly a strategic statement of Congress kind.
The tear jerk show statement made yesterday has picked more criticism than applause as none of the leaders and leaders of the region including her own party weren’t happy with just the statement. Many say that it was so untimely statement made and this clearly presents the nakedness of the party in front of all and her appeal this time definitely go down without any response from the public or will not create any favours towards the chances of the party.
She came down severely on BJP and TDP in her speeches at Bhuavngiri and Vijayanagaram, saying that the alliances formed regionally have no objective of public service but only holds interest in power and appealed to people not to vote for such groups which can’t make bring development to people. She requested people to be determined to vote for Congress for the developmental programs made by the ruling Congress government and they need to vote for Congress so as to finish the other developmental programs which they planned for the future of the people of the State.
Her statements seem to have not picked any credibility in the state, as most of the public believed that it was the same statement made in her earlier meetings too. The campaign seems to have done nothing much better in the fortunes of the Congress; it was all the way Madame Show and offered nothing new. CM YS Rajasekhar Reddy and State PCC President D Srinivas were present in her meetings along with the regional leaders.
