Rahul Gandhi will interact with all sections: MP Uttam

Hyderabad, Oct 20: Congress MP and former TPCC President Uttam Kumar Reddy informed that AICC leader Rahul Gandhi would interact with all sections of society during his stay in Telangana for Bharat Jodo Yatra from 23rd October to 7th November.

Utam Kumar Reddy, who is the AICC Coordinator for Telugu States (AP & TS), addressed a press conference at Gandhi Bhavan on Thursday.

“Bharat Jodo Yatra has been receiving tremendous response from all sections of society. Rahul Gandhi’s journey in Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka and now Andhra Pradesh has been historic and quite memorable. This will be momentous and more successful in Telangana compared to other States,” he said.

Uttam Kumar Reddy said that elaborate arrangements were being made to welcome Bharat Jodo Yatra in Telangana on 23rd October. Further, arrangements are being made for Rahul Gandhi’s interaction with different segments of society during his stay in Telangana till 7th November. He will interact with various intellectuals, unemployed youth, farmers, representatives of women SHGs and students among others. He will also have interactive meetings with representatives of various communities in the State.

The Congress MP said Rahul Gandhi would highlight the problems of farmers who were being cheated by the TRS Govt since 2014. “TRS Govt did not fulfil the promise of waiving off crop loans up to Rs. 1 lakh. Lakhs of farmers do not have access to credit due to their pending loans and they are forced to depend on private money lenders. Farmers are not getting the right MSP for their produce despite several assurances given by TRS and BJP Govts. The increase in the prices of seeds, fuel, fertilizers, etc., have increased the input cost manifold in the last eight years while the TRS Govt is trying to shield its failures by extending a small amount in the name of the ‘Rythu Bandhu scheme. Rahul Gandhi will speak on these issues and other problems related to the farming community,” he said.

Uttam Kumar Reddy said Rahul Gandhi would have detailed interaction with the unemployed youth. He said nearly 40 lakh youth in Telangana were jobless. They include over 22 lakh educated qualified youth registered with the Telangana Public State Commission. He said the TRS Govt neither created jobs nor it provided the promised Unemployment Allowance of Rs. 3,016 per month. Rahul Gandhi will also speak on the failed promise of Prime Minister Narendra Modi of providing two crore jobs per year.

The Congress MP has appealed to all sections of society to participate in the Bharat Jodo Yatra in Telangana which aims to unite the country. “BJP is trying to divide the nation based on religion, caste and region. PM Modi is pursuing the divisive politics of hatred. Bharat Jodo Yatra aims to end hatred and reunite the country on real issues that concern the common man,” he said.
