Andhra Pradesh Congress, which of late practicing non-conventional political campaigns, is all set to to work to the defeat of Bharatiya Janata Party in Bihar elections sitting in Hyderabad. The decision stems from Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s failure to announce the special category state status which Modi himself assured during the 2014 election campaign in Andhra Pradesh. Entire Telugu population of Andhra Pradesh expected that Modi would announce something- if not a Bihar-like package, to the state of Andhr Pradesh during his participation in the foundation laying ceremony of new capital Amaravati on October 22, 2015. But the Congress said the PM had disappointed. So, the Andhra Pradesh Congress led by PCC president N Raghuvira Reddy took a pledge today to work to defeat the BJP in Bihar.
The party chose a novel method of campaign against BJP in Bihar. According to APCC general secretary Janga Gawtham, PCC President N.Raghuveera Reddy & other senior congress leaders will appeal to the Bihar bound commuters travelling by trains from and through Secunderabad to Patna to vote against BJP & N.D.A in third phase of elections.
” This is in protest for not according special status to Andhra Pradesh by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. All available Senior Congress Leaders will go to Secunderabad railway station on Sunday and meet the passengers in Bihar bound trains from 9 am to 10 am at Secunderabad railway station on platform no 10,” Gautham told telugu 360.com.
“Thousands of Bihar migrants are living in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Many of them travel to their home state every day. So, we want to tell them how untrustworthy the Prime Minister is . We also tell how he promised special category status to Andhra Pradesh in the campain in 2014 and ditched the people after getting votes. Our leaders will enlighten the Bihari people on the wicked character of BJP,” Gawtham said.
