Express News Service First Published : 02 Oct 2008 04:25:00 AM ISTLast Updated : 02 Oct 2008 07:47:17 AM ISTHYDERABAD: In the light of the changing political scenario in the State, Chief Minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy has stressed the need to strengthen the Congress at the grassroots, especially in Assembly constituencies represented by Opposition parties.
Accordingly, he has decided to hold segment-wise review meetings with the cadres from Thursday.
Rajasekhara Reddy, for whom the Chevella Assembly segment holds fond memories, has decided to begin with cadres of that constituency. They, along with the legislator from the constituency P Sabitha Indra Reddy, will meet Reddy at his camp office here.
It may be recalled that Rajasekhara Reddy had launched his 1600-km-long padayatra from Chevella constituency before the 2004 elections. He had also launched the “Rajiv Nagara Bata” from Chevella as also the campaign for the byelections to 16 Assembly seats in the Telangana region.
In his meeting with the cadres, the Chief Minister will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of the party and the strategies of the Opposition parties. Importantly, he will try to smooth out differences between cadres. PCC president D Srinivas will also be invited to some of the review meetings.
The party leadership feels there are 60 to 70 segments which are ‘problematic’. The Congress high command, while suggesting the meetings, has asked the chief minister and the PCC chief to coordinate closely in this regard, according to party sources.
