Congress back on the rails in Telangana


Ever since Uttam Kumar Reddy and Mallu Bhatti Vikramarkha took over the reins, there has literally been a total transformation of Congress in Telangana. The duo, both MLAs, have put the party back on rails. What is most visible in the party is the rare unity among the Congress leaders. Uttam is able to bring all the leaders together. Not a day passes without out the party organizing a dharna or rally or some protest in one place or the other against the ruling party. The Congress, in less than a year, has been able to weather the worst of its troubles arisen out of defeat in 2014 election and it is clear that it is on the road to recovery. Team Uttam made the Congress state leadership most mobile one.
The leaders are seen touring all the districts and mandals with one program or the other.


The party has concluded meetings in all constituencies that fall in the jurisdiction GHMC in order to keep the party fit to take on TDP and TRS in GHMC polls. The Congress is in the lead in the preparatory race to Warangal Lok Sabha bypolls. Uttam & Co has been successful in making every issue a rallying point to mobilize the workers. Normally, it is rare for any political party, which bit dust in the polls and lost power, to pull its act together in so short a period.The defection of D Srinivas, a senior leader, to TRS, has not had any impact on the party.

Gandhi Bhavan, the state party headquarters, has been abuzz with activities. Pranahita-Chevella, Osmania General Hospital, anti-cheap liquor, jobs, farmers suicides, Muslim reservations, corruption charges against ministers, Corruption in Kakatiya mission etc- everything has become a weapon in the hands of Team Uttam. He streamlined the system of spokesmen in such an manner that the party voice is heard uninterrupted.

Congress bubbling with enthusiasm

The massive dharna organized by the T-Congress on Wednesday at Vikarabaka bears testimony to the bubbling enthusiasm in the rank and file of the party in the state.The program received unprecedented support from the people as Congress had taken up right cause at the right time. The party added the demand for separate Vikarabad district to the list of the demands which included withdrawal of the proposal to scrap the approved design of Pranahita-Chevella. The leaders participated in the dharna include former ministers Sabita Indra Reddy, G Prasad Kumar,Sarve Satyanarana, Md Shabbir Ali, Ram Mohan Reddy, G Sudir Reddy, P Karthik, Bikshapthi Goud, Srisailam Goud, Lakshma Reddy, Sridhar, Malla Reddy, RR district Congress president Mallesh.


On Thursday, Congress organized a dharna against the proposed introduction cheap liquor by TRS government near Hayantnagar (pic.above). Former MLA Sudhir Reddy lead the Dharna. Reddy has become so active these days, he transformed LB Nagar into a Dharna Chowk of Ranga Reddy district.

Can this unity be sustained? This enthusiasm should not lead to agitation-fatigue in the party.
