Telangana Congress to launch a campaign to connect with minorities
- Digvijaya Singh asks party leaders to re-connect Congress with minorities
Telangana Congress | Hyderabad, December 23: The Congress party will launch a special campaign to connect itself with the minorities in Telangana State.
“A tentative proposal on a special campaign was discussed with AICC leader Digvijaya Singh. He had asked for a detailed plan which will be prepared after taking approval from TPCC President A. Revanth Reddy.
The idea to re-connect the Congress party with the minorities across Telangana” informed TPCC Minorities Dept Chairman Shaik Abdullah Sohail in a media statement on Friday.
Abdullah Sohail said that the AICC leader Digvijay Singh enquired about various activities of the TPCC Minorities Department and directed that special efforts be made to reconnect with the minorities.
“Previous Congress Govt had given 4% Muslim reservation and implemented several schemes for the welfare of minorities in the past. We apparently failed to highlight our contribution towards the welfare of minorities in the past. Several factors created a gap between Congress and minorities. Through a special campaign, we will try to bridge that gap,” he said.
The Congress leader said that the failures of the TRS Govt need to be exposed properly. “Chief Minister K. Chandrashekhar Rao has cheated the Muslims on the promise of 12% reservation. His government did not release the allocated funds and turned all institutions handling minorities’ welfare into defunct bodies. Muslims have now realised that KCR was causing huge damage to minorities by wearing a fake mask of secularism. TRS always supported the BJP Govt at the Centre and it indirectly strengthened the BJP by damaging the Congress party in the State. We will soon launch a campaign to expose these realities before the people,” he said.
Abdullah Sohail said that the proposed campaign was also aimed at bringing jobless youth and homeless families closer to Congress. “Nearly 10-12 lakh youth belonging to the minority communities in Telangana were jobless. They did not receive a single rupee assistance or loan in the last eight years from the TRS Govt. We will launch a movement to connect with these jobless youth to pressurise the TRS Govt for giving subsidised loans and other sops,” he said.
Telangana Congress Campaign
He said there were several issues like protection of mosques, weaker sections housing, education, health, protection of Wakf properties, and Urdu language which would be raised in the special campaign. He said that the nature of the campaign would be finalised after discussing it with the senior leaders in the next two-three weeks. “It will be a statewide campaign although it will be more focussed on nearly 40 constituencies with a significant population of minorities. We are already working on the logistics and other details,” he said.
“TRS or the BRS is not a secular party and we will prove it during our campaign. CM KCR has been implementing the agenda of Sangh Parivar by damaging the institutions, schemes, and even the places of worship belonging to minorities. We will go to the masses with the message that only the Congress party can ensure secularism and growth of all communities without any discrimination,” he said. (Maxim News)
