Warm welcome:APCC president Botcha Satyanarayana being taken out in a rally in Patancheru in Medak district on Wednesday. This is his maiden visit to Telangana after taking over as PCC chief.
PATANCHERU (MEDAK DISTRICT): APCC president Botcha Satyanarayana has said that he would convey the feelings of the people of Telangana, Andhra and Rayalaseema areas to the party high command in an unbiased manner.
“This is a sensitive issue and has to be dealt with carefully. Do not politicise the issue. As the PCC president, I can understand the feelings of Telangana, Andhra and Rayalaseema people and will convey them to the party high command,” he said while addressing a public meeting at Patancheru on Wednesday.
He was responding to a request made by APSRTC chairman M. Satyanarayana Rao to make the wish of the people (forming of Telangana State) a reality. This was the first visit by Mr. Satyanarayana in the Telangana region after taking over the reigns of the PCC.
Stating that policies but not persons are important in the party, the PCC president said that all the schemes that were introduced by late Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy would be continued without any deviation. “One need not worry about Rs. 2 per kg rice or pensions schemes.
They will be continued as long as the Congress government is there,” he said.
Responding to the request of Women and Child Welfare Minister V. Sunitha Lakshma Reddy and MLC V. Bhoopal Reddy, Mr. Botcha Satyanarayana, who is also Transport Minister, assured that he would take up the issue of setting up a satellite bus depot in Narsapur and create better facilities at the hospital in Patancheru.
The programme was presided over by legislator T. Nandeeswar Goud. Major Industries Minister J. Geeta Reddy, MLA P. Kishta Reddy and others participated in the programme.
