Hyderabad: Congress MP and Huzurnagar candidate Capt N Uttam Kumar Reddy foresaw a significant transformation in the political landscape of Telangana in the upcoming Assembly elections to be held on November 30.
Speaking to the media during a campaign rally in Huzurnagar on Monday, Reddy confidently stated that the Congress party would secure a decisive victory, winning over 80 seats in the upcoming Assembly elections. This outcome, he predicted, would lead to the retirement of numerous BRS legislators who had underperformed in the past decade, making way for Congress leaders with a strong commitment to developing Telangana.
He highlighted Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao’s indications of a BRS defeat and a Congress victory. Reddy also challenged KCR’s claims regarding the formation of Telangana, attributing statehood to the efforts of the Congress party and its leader Sonia Gandhi.
He emphasized that Telangana became a reality due to the sustained movement launched by various sections of society, including students, youth, employees, lawyers, and journalists.
“KCR is wrongly trying to take sole credit for Telangana formation,” said Reddy. “Sonia Gandhi granted statehood to the region as she wanted to prevent youth suicides. The Congress party sacrificed its existence in Andhra Pradesh to fulfill the promise of granting statehood for Telangana.”
Reddy criticized the BRS regime for corruption, nepotism, arrogance, and a dictatorial attitude. He asserted that the BRS government had failed to fulfill promises to develop Telangana and improve the lives of its people, leading to neglect of various sections of society.
Expressing confidence in the Congress’s victory in the upcoming elections, Uttam Kumar Reddy outlined the party’s vision for Telangana’s development, promising six guarantees and a comprehensive manifesto addressing the needs of all sections of society.
“BRS is now resorting to tactics like emotional blackmail to woo voters, but the people of Telangana have already decided to vote for a change and bring the Congress party to power,” said Uttam Kumar Reddy.
He reiterated the claim that the Congress would secure more than 80 seats and sweep the undivided Nalgonda district in the coming election.
