Two days after conclusion of polling, Praja Rajyam on Saturday started an elaborate, district-wise exercise to review and evaluate its performance.
After this exercise, a report will be submitted to party president K. Chiranjeevi, following which it will be analysed by the party’s Political Affairs Committee. From then onwards, they would be working towards making the required arrangements in tune with the counting on May 16, said party general secretary P. Vinay Kumar.
At a press conference here, Dr. Vinay said the district-level meetings would include convenors, joint convenors and co-convenors, along with the district in-charge deputed by the State party unit. On Saturday itself, he said that together with another general secretary P. Mitra, he had sat through meetings pertaining to Warangal, Nizamabad, Adilabad and Karimnagar districts.
Everyday since polling concluded, they were getting reports from the districts and based on the feedback, they were very sure of bagging 31 Parliament and 160 Assembly constituencies, he said. Considering the enthusiasm among party leaders in the districts and if it indeed turned out to be a wave in favour of Mr. Chiranjeevi, they would end up with 38 Parliament and over 200 Assembly constituencies, he added.
Dr. Vinay and Yuva Rajyam general secretary Dasoju Sravan said they were very happy with their performance considering the hard work they had put in during the past year and a half, December, 2007 onwards.
This was despite all the hurdles placed in their way by the combined might of the ruling Congress and Telugu Desam parties, they said.
