Hyderabad: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) President & MP Capt. N. Uttam Kumar Reddy said that Hyderabad witnessed development only during the Congress regime and the city needs Congress party to get back its lost glory.
Addressing Division Presidents and other senior leaders at Indira Bhavan in Gandhi Bhavan premises on Friday as part of preparatory meeting for Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections, Uttam Kumar Reddy alleged that the TRS Government did nothing for development of Hyderabad and instead it destroyed what existed till 2014. He said that the TRS Government did not fulfill a single promise it made with the people in the last GHMC elections. He said that civic amenities were in highly deplorable conditions due to continuous neglect by Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao. He said that the TRS Government stands on a bunch of fake promises and false claims.
Uttam Kumar Reddy asked the Congress cadre to gear up for the forthcoming GHMC elections. He also asked them to enlighten the people about the achievement of previous Congress regimes and the failures of present TRS Govt. He said that the Congress cadre must help the people in their areas and never lose touch with them.
The TPCC Chief directed the Division Presidents to complete the process of formation of committees by September 18. He said that the formation of committees for Blocks should also be completed at the earliest. He said that the Congress party would finalise the candidates well in advance. However, he said that the Mayoral candidate would be decided after the finalisation of reservation by the authorities.
