The Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) municipal elections preparatory meeting began at Sangareddy on Sunday.

AICC Telangana incharge R C Kuntia, TPCC President N Uttam Kumar Reddy, CLP leader Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, TPCC working president Kusuma Kumar, Ponnam Prabhakar, AICC Secretaries Bosu Raju and Saleem, Vamshichand Reddy and S A Sampath Kumar, former PCC president Ponnala Laxmaiah, former CLP Leader Shabbir Ali, former minister J Geetha Reddy, other office bearers, DCC presidents and municipality presidents took part in the meeting.

Sangareddy DCC President Nirmala presided over the meeting.

The meeting paid a rich tribute to the veteran Congress leader Sheila Dikshit who passed away in Delhi on Saturday.

Speaking on the occasion, Kuntia said that the leaders were striving hard to strengthen the party in the State, and expressed confidence that the party would win a majority of the municipalities in the upcoming elections.

He said that the Congress had secured 24% of the votes in the recent Lok Sabha elections, and that the TRS vote share had come down in 2018. He claimed that the Congress' vote bank would go up further in the upcoming municipal elections, and called upon both the leaders and the ward and booth committees to work hard and ensure the victory of the party.

He also asked the party leaders to take up the failure of the TRS in solving the drinking water problems to the notice of the people of the State.

Noting that the BC reservations issue was pending in the Supreme Court, he wondered how the State government could provide reservations to the BCs. He said that the Congress would perform well anyway irrespective of the reservations proved by the State government.

Coming down heavily on the BJP, Uttam Kumar Reddy said that there was no place for the saffron party in Telangana. He said that the BJP had secured just 7% of the votes in the recent elections in the state, and mocked its leaders for dreaming big after winning just four Lok Sabha seats from the State.

Reddy asserted that the Congress was quite strong in Telangana, and that it was the only alternative to the ruling TRS.
