Priyanka Gandhi to be invited to minorities’ meeting in Old City

The decision was taken in the meeting of TPCC Minorities’ Department Executive Committee held in Indira Bhavan in Gandhi Bhavan on Wednesday.

Hyderabad: The Congress has decided to wage a direct fight against the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) while launching a series of agitations against the TRS Government in Telangana State.

The decision was taken in the meeting of TPCC Minorities’ Department Executive Committee held in Indira Bhavan in Gandhi Bhavan on Wednesday.

The meeting, chaired by TPCC Minorities Dept Chairman Shaik Abdullah Sohail, was attended by AICC Minorities Dept Incharge Farhan Azmi, TPCC General Secretary Prem Lal, Hyderabad Incharge for Congress membership drive Dr Rohin Reddy, TPCC OBC Dept Chairman Srikanth Goud and other leaders.

Addressing the meeting, Farhan Azmi made it clear that there won’t be any change in the leadership of the TPCC Minorities Dept and the present body would continue till the next elections.

He asked Shaik Abdullah Sohail to finalise the appointment of district-level and other bodies of the Minorities Department.

Speaking to media persons after the meeting, Abdullah Sohail said detailed discussions were held on four major issues which included membership drive and agitations to be held in the near future.

He said there has been a tremendous response to the Congress membership drive across Telangana State, especially among the minorities.

He said an unprecedented number of people have joined the Congress party from the Hyderabad and Secunderabad Lok Sabha constituencies. He said the party has decided to wage a strong fight against the MIM in the Old City.

“MIM leadership has been causing huge damage to the Congress party and other secular forces across India. There is no doubt that MIM is acting like the B-Team of BJP and Sangh Parivar. This has been proved in the various elections including the recently concluded Assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh.

As a political party, MIM is free to contest elections from any place in the country, but the MIM leadership is contesting polls in selective constituencies with the sole intention of polarising the elections to benefit the BJP. Now, we have decided to take on the MIM in its stronghold,” he added.

Abdullah Sohail said a decision has been taken to conduct a Padayatra from Charminar to Gandhi Bhavan on minorities’ issues in May this year (after Eid-ul-Fitr). He also said a series of public meetings will be held in all districts of Telangana from June-July 2022.

“We will also hold public meetings in all Assembly constituencies of Hyderabad. We’ve decided to invite AICC General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi to one of the meetings to be held in the Old City,” he added.
