Hyderabad: In order to regain the lost status of Congress in Telangana, there is a plan to utilize the services of Ms. Priyanka Gandhi.
It is reported that AICC is exploring the possibility of appointing Ms. Priyanka Gandhi, in charge of Telangana State in addition to giving her the responsibilities of Eastern UP.
After getting defeat at the hands of TRS in TS, Congress High Command is getting ready to appoint a heavy weight leader to shoulder responsibilities of Telangana. In case Priyanka Gandhi accepts the responsibility of Telangana, its weak status could be strengthened. Congress High Command feels that if no action is taken to improve the weak status of Congress in Telangana, the results of Lok Sabha Polls could be disappointing for the party.
Party leadership is not satisfied with the functioning of AICC in charge of TS, Mr. RC Kantiah in whose stewardship Congress fought Assembly elections recently.
It is reported that 150 Congressmen went to New Delhi to meet Mr. Rahul Gandhi so that they could submit their proposals for the renovation of Congress party but Mr. Rahul Gandhi did not give them an appointment.
AICC sources indicated that Congress High Command considers that most of the party leaders are indisciplined and lazy. It believes that with the appointment of Priyanka Gandhi as in charge of TS, Congress would get strength from the grassroots level.
It is also reported that Ms. Priyanka Gandhi is being persuaded to accept the responsibility of Congress party affairs in TS. The main motto of Congress is to prevent Modi Govt. from assuming power again. Telangana Congress will announce the names of its candidates for parliamentary elections before Election Commission issues notification.
There are reports that a decision will be taken soon to join hands with TDP, CPI and Telangana Jana Samithi.
