Congress cadre told to form committees at grassroots

AICC incharge of A.P. Oommen Chandy on Monday asked party cadres to tell people of the State that Mr. Rahul Gandhi’s leadership was required at the Centre for the State to get the special category status.

Addressing a district-level party meeting here, Mr. Chandy said that cadres should work towards strengthening Rahul’s leadership among people here and tell them that without him and the Congress at the Centre, no justice would be served to them.

‘Step up campaign’

Mr. Chandy told cadres that they had to step up campaign to expose opportunistic politics of the Bharatiya Janata Party, the YSR Congress and the Telugu Desam Party, which played with sentiments of people.

He further said that Congress leaders in the state should focus on strengthening it from booth levels. This should be achieved by forming committees with dedicated workers who were willing to work for the party.

Motorcycle rally

Earlier, Congress leaders from 14 assembly constituencies organised a motorcycle rally through arterial junctions of the city to mark Mr. Chandy’s visit. APCC president N. Raghuveera Reddy, former union minister Chinta Mohan, AICC member Sailajanath took part in the event.
