HYDERABAD: For the second time in over a month, the Congress Manifesto Committee headed by Legislative Council Chairman A. Chakrapani decided to skip a discussion the contentious Telangana statehood issue.
It instead focussed on the developmental and welfare programmes to be included in the election manifesto.
Sources said the committee members felt it was better to include welfare and development programmes first before taking up the separate Telangana and the grand alliance issues. “We have to compulsorily include the two issues in the manifesto,” they said. The meeting, attended by APCC president D. Srinivas, Campaign Committee Chairman K. Rosaiah and Ministers — J. Geetha Reddy and Botcha Satyanarayana — decided to constitute eight sub-committees on various subjects. These sub-committees will handle various subjects like agriculture and cooperation; industries, energy, infrastructure development and information technology; education, law, courts and judicial reforms; local administration, rural development and rural water supply; general administration, home, road and buildings etc. A separate sub-committee comprising Mr. Rosaiah and Advisor to Government (Public Affairs) K.V.P. Ramachandra Rao will study the achievements of the present regime. All these committees had been asked to submit their proposals by January 31. Dr. Chakrapani told reporters that the manifesto would be sent to the high command.
