HYDERABAD: APCC president D. Srinivas has warned party workers indulging in attacks on party offices and insulting Congress president Sonia Gandhi of stringent action if they do not mend their ways.

He convened an emergency meeting of available office-bearers to take stock of the situation arising out of the protest demonstrations staged by supporters of Kadapa MP Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy following his resignation from the post on Monday. The office-bearers said they were shocked at the incident involving “disfiguring” of the statue of Jawaharlal Nehru in Guntur claiming “Mr. Jagan's supporters crossed all limits of party discipline.”

Since youth prominently figured in the incidents that occurred in Kadapa, Chittoor, Anantapur and other places, the meeting asked the Youth Congress and NSUI activists to be vigilant against such attacks. The District Congress Committees too should be alert and take steps, in coordination with senior leaders and frontal organisations to prevent such incidents.

Briefing reporters later, Mr. Srinivas said a control room was being set up at Gandhi Bhavan, the Congress State headquarters, to keep a close watch on the situation and respond appropriately in the event of any attacks on the leaders.

Action against guilty

The APCC president expressed concern over some genuine Congress leaders tendering their resignations and advised them not to act emotionally. There was no room for the “vested interests” that were attacking the party and those found guilty of the attacks would immediately be shown the door.

Replying to queries, he said there was no threat to the government or the party by Mr. Jagan's resignation and the Congress had successfully overcome such problems in the past. On the exit of the Kadapa MP, he said while the party was supreme, individuals too were important in their own capacity. The impact of the development on the party would be known in the days to come.
