Adopts two-pronged strategy to strengthen party

‘Kisan Adalats’ to be organised from July 21

Government failure to protect standing crops flayed

KARIMNAGAR: The Bharatiya Janata Party district unit has adopted a two-pronged strategy to gear up for the general elections by strengthening the party on one side and by launching agitational programmes against the anti-people policies of the government on the other.

Disclosing this to newsmen here on Tuesday, BJP Kisan Morcha State president P. Sugunakar Rao said the first phase of strengthening the party from each Assembly segment is taken up by organising meetings with the party rank and file.

The first such meeting was organised in Karimnagar town for the party leaders of Karimnagar and Choppadandi Assembly segments on Tuesday.

Similar meetings would be conducted in Huzurabad, Manakondur, Husnabad, Sircilla and Vemulawada Assembly segments in the respective mandals till July 18. He said that they had already completed the Peddapalli parliamentary segment meeting recently.

Mr. Rao said that Kisan adalats would be organised in Karimnagar district from July 21. The first adalat would be held in front of the Collectorate on July 21 wherein party leader Ch Vidyasagar Rao, G Ramakrishna Reddy, Prathap Ramakrishna and others would attend.

He flayed the State government for failing to protect standing crops from withering by providing assured power supply.

He launched a scathing attack against the government for failure on the power sector by not taking measures to generate additional power.

Party district president B. Jaganmohan Rao, town president D. Srinivas, town vice-president Kishan were also present.

‘Corruption’ flayed

Adilabad Staff Reporter adds: Meanwhile, the party criticised the Congress government at the Centre and in the State on Tuesday for increased corruption. Party leaders said the claims of the Congress on rapid development are false.

Addressing a meeting of party workers, BJP State secretary Prem Singh Rathod compared the rule of NDA with that of the present government. He said the Congress is pursuing appeasement policy with an eye on the minority vote-bank.
