Congress to do stock-taking

Special Correspondent


Kiran, Botcha to analyse party's position in each district, post the Jagan factor


HYDERABAD: A complete overhaul of the Congress party affairs is on cards from next week when Chief Minister N. Kiran Kumar Reddy and APCC chief Botcha Satyanarayana would sit down to analyse the party's position in each district.

Factual reports

A serious exercise will begin to boost the sagging confidence levels of the party cadre after several district-level leaders and MLAs switched their loyalties to YSR Congress Party headed by Y. S. Jaganmohan Reddy. The District Congress Committees have been directed to send factual reports on the loyalties of leaders/cadres and the prevailing ground reality. “Once the party gets clarity on these issues, the leadership can plan follow up action and launch fire-fighting operations,” a senior APCC functionary remarked.

“As more than a dozen MLAs are sailing with Mr. Jaganmohan Reddy, we have no other go but to build new leadership. For the last eight months, there is complete silence in their constituencies with no visible party activity,” he said. In such constituencies, two to three active leaders are being identified and groomed to take up the task of re-building the party to face the 2014 elections.

The APCC leadership has also sought a report on the status of defeated Congress candidates in the last elections amid reports that some of them have joined the YSR Congress Party.

Party sources maintain that not only the Ministers, in-charge Ministers, legislators, but Zilla Parishad and District Central Cooperative Bank chiefs besides the defeated party candidates would be made part of the review meetings. The idea is to get a clear picture of each Assembly constituency and the party's strength and weaknesses there. The exercise would also give an idea on whom to appoint for various corporations and nominated posts.
