HYDERABAD: The Congress party would finalise its campaign plan for the GHMC elections in the next three days, even as two unlikely friends PCC president D Srinivas and D Nagendar met each other thrice on Sunday to iron out the mess arising out of the announcement of seats, especially for Serilingally division.
Even as Congress seniors and ministers claimed that all matters were sorted out amicably, party legislators K Laxma Reddy, B Raji Reddy and Bhikshapati Yadav met Sonia Gandhi’s political secretary Ahmed Patel and Union minister S Jaipal Reddy in New Delhi on Sunday to convey the happenings in the state Congress over the distribution of tickets.
Though the legislators refused to elaborate on their discussions in New Delhi after their return in the evening, it is presumed that several discrepancies that were reported in the media over the distribution of tickets were conveyed and discussed at length.
Though the PCC president has been denying any wrongdoing and maintained that all candidates were announced only in consultation with the local MLAs, the current state of affairs in Congress party, on the contrary, is exactly opposite with several legislators openly declaring that all was not well in the distribution of tickets.
Meanwhile, Uppal MLA B Raji Reddy and some other MLAs called on the PCC chief D Srinivas to convey their feelings on the selection of certain candidates. On the other hand, Medchal MLA continued to express his displeasure openly regarding distribution of tickets pertaining to his constituency.
