Results Of GHMC Elections Were Disappointing: Congress
Hyderabad, Dec.4 (Maxim News): Former Minister Mohammed Ali Shabbir said that the results of GHMC elections were severely disappointing, but the Congress party would bounce back soon.
Speaking to media persons at Gandhi Bhavan, Shabbir Ali said that the victory and defeat were not new for the 138-year-old Congress party. He said that the TRS, BJP and MIM have misled the voters with a false narrative and secured their votes by using all illegal means. “Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao has misused the official machinery, deployed entire TRS leadership and cadres from across Telangana State and used cash, liquor and other sops to lure the voters. Similarly, BJP has deployed Prime Minister Narender Modi, Home Minister Amit Shah and other union ministers like Prakash Javedkar and Smriti Irani, Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath, ex-CM Devender Fadnavis and other leaders to win the GHMC elections. Despite these efforts, more than 50% of voters stayed away from polling and remaining voters got misled and voted for TRS, BJP and MIM,” he said.
Ali said that the Congress cadre participated in the election campaign with highly limited resources. They faced the TRS, BJP and MIM parties with courage and commitment. They did not cheat or mislead the voters and sought voters based on previous performance. Congress party did not try to polarise the voters on communal lines and raised genuine public issues, he said. (Maxim News)
