Gouda sangham seeks fair deal

NALGONDA, FEB. 26. The Gouda Sangham has asked political parties allocate two Assembly and one parliamentary seats each for the leaders of the community in the coming elections.

The sangham's district president, Somagani Shankar Goud, said that no political party had given a fair share to the community in the allocation of tickets.

"Gouds constitute 12 per cent in voter lists. However, all the political parties have denied a fair deal for us,'' he lamented.
