AP Congress collapsed but its leaders not changing


They will never change. It is said repeatedly that the Congress does not need outside enemies to bite the dust. Its internal groups are enough to rout itself both inside and out. After bifurcation, the Congress met with a crushing defeat in 2014 elections in AP. More than that, its existence became questionable.
There was no improvement in the 2019 elections either. Now, Tirupati MP seat bypoll has come up. This SC reserved seat was traditionally seen as a Congress stronghold because of the support from the Dalit sections.
As is well known, the poorer SC, ST sections have shifted loyalties to the YS Jagan family. It is not known whether the Dalits have lost their interest in Jagan Reddy or not. However, the Congress is claiming that the Dalits were unhappy with the YCP. Whatever, the Congress leaders were back to their previous games of groupism and internal clashes.
Now, different groups are trying to ensure that former MP Chinta Mohan would not get Tirupati MP ticket this time. Political analysts say that even now the Congress is not anywhere near the winning margin in Tirupati. But still, its leaders are quarrelling rather than becoming united to make some recovery.

AP Congress round-table on Covid-19


Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) on Monday said it will organize a round-table meeting of all political parties, people organisations and representatives from the medical fraternity on Tuesday to discuss measures to contain the spread of Covid-19.

APCC vice-president Dr Gangadhar slammed the central and state governments over ‘poor’ and ‘negligent’ management of coronavirus.

“Andhra Pradesh has reached the second position in corona cases, as a result of mismanagement of corona by the state government. The state government has done nothing to flatten the curve,” he said.

APCC State Human Rights Cell chairman M Rajasekhar demanded setting up the State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) against atrocities on Dalits.

“The state government should constitute a State Human Rights Commission. There is no commission in Andhra Pradesh since the bifurcation of the state, which is leading to increased atrocities on weaker sections. The government should constitute SHRC as soon as possible, otherwise, we will approach the high court,” he said.

Post Bihar, APCong sure of revival of fortunes


Andhra Pradesh   Congress is now confident of revival of fortunes in the State. The party , which has been organizing Matti Satyagram  against Prime Modi’s refusal to implement  his own promise given to people of Andhra Pradesh, has celebrated Modi’s defeat in a novel way. On Monday, many party leaders led by Mahila Congress leader Ganga Bhavani , went to Secunderabad Railway station to distribute sweets to the passengers in Bihar bound trains. The party had organized similar program before the polling also to request the Bihar passengers to vote against Prime Minister Modi, who is attacking the self respect of Bihar, by calling Bihar a Jungle Raj day in and day out.

In another development, many senior leaders, emboldened by the Modi’s fall in Bihar assembled  at emerging capital Amaravati on Monday morning, at the spot, where Prime Minister Modi offered matti and neeru to chief minister  Naidu on October 22, 2015, on the occasion of laying of foundation stone for the capital  city.  Talking from the spot to ‘telugu360.c0m’,  opposition leader in the Andhra Pradesh Legislative council  C Ramachandraiah said Bihar acted as a morale booster among the Congress workers in the state. ” We are confident of  revival of Congress fortunes in the state. As the NDA government led by Modi, the state government led by TDP president Chandrababu Naidu is also a failure. In the past 17 months, TDP government  has become a burden on the tax payers of the state. They can’t bear it for long,” he said.

Everything got worsened  in the state-farmers’s suicides, unemployment,loan waiver, land acquisition againt the will of the people, false promises, extravagant spending everything. We are expecting Naidu would be taught a lesson in the way Bihar did to Modi,” he said.

In a democracy, Ramachandraiah said, deceiving people is worst crime. ” Modi and Naidu came to power by promising many things to people of Andhra Pradesh who were in shock of bifurcation thrust on them . They offered jobs, unemployed allowance, special category state status to Andhra Pradesh. They won the election, formed the government and deceived people by going back on their promises. Modi and Naidu had deceived people on three counts- by not implementing the provision incorporated in the AP reorganization Act-2014, by not honoring what they promised  on the floor of the Parliament and by throwing wind their poll manifestoes.  Modi could not remain sullied just for 16 months. He has amassed huge anti-incumbency burden while Nitish, even after 10-year rule was preferred. Bihar will be repeatedin the Andhra Pradesh, ” he said.

Ramachandraiah said Congress had planned a massive campaign against Modi and Naidu sith Bihar message in 175 constituencies of Andhra Pradesh.

“After the Matti Satyagraha, we will announce our program of carrying the Bihar spirit to every village and town in the state. The Modi has triggered NDA’s fall, it will reach Andhra Pradesh also,”  he said.

AP Congress plans to win back SCs in state


The Congress Party, which successfully launched two campaigns against Telugu Desam government, is now attempting to move closer to the section which deserted the party in recent times. The party is planning to regain the lost ground among the Minorities and SC and ST groups. The SC group, once the great force behind the Congress, is no longer a monolithic group as it underwent many changes. Mala and Madiga division, YSR death factor, division of the state etc have affected the SC communities. The Congress, which lost elections in 2014, is struggling hard to win confidence of the people in the state again. Because, the party is seen as main villain of the division of the Andhra Pradesh and as responsible for the real and projected problems of Andhra Pradesh. So, the Congress has to replace this negetive impression from the minds of the people with a positive image. With the two programs, one crore signature campaign for special status, and filing cheating cases against PM, CM and Venkaiah for going back on poll assurances, the party is able to attract the middle classes. So, APCC leadership is now embarking on a mission to build bridges with dalits of the state.

To attract the SCs, Andhra Pradesh Congress on Saturday launched another novel program that glorifies Ambedkar and his ideology. The occasion is 125th birth anniversary of Dr BR Ambedkar, the architect Constitution of India. The celebration commenced on Saturday and will go on up to April 14,2016.

During the celebrations planned across the state, the party will unveil 125 Ambedkar statues in various places. The program begins with the unveiling of the Ambedkar statue in in Kristu Rajapuram, Vijayawada on Saturday. Former governor and union minister, Sushile Kumar Shinde has unveiled the statue.

As part of the program the party will felicitate the popular dalit leaders and those who stood for values espoused by Dr Ambedkar in every district till April next. Similary, seminars, debates would be held on Ambedkar ideals, he said. APCC president N Raghuvira Reddy, AICC SC cell chairman are said to the co-authors of the program. Whether the program would reposition the party as real rival of TDP is known only due coure, but these program definitely help Congress keep fit for the future elections.
