Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president Capt N Uttam Kumar Reddy has directed the party workers to gear up for next Panchayat elections.
Expressing concern over reports of tampering of EVMs in recently held elections, Uttam Kumar Reddy demanded that the Panchayat elections should be held only through ballot papers.
He said that the government would be pressurised and the TPCC would pass a resolution in this regard.
He said that the coming Panchayat elections in the State would be highly crucial as they precede general elections. Therefore, he said all Congress workers and leaders should actively work to strengthen the party at booth level.
He asked the leaders to actively participate in the voters' enrolment drive being conducted by the Election Commission of India.
He said the Congress leaders should cross check and take measures to rectify the mistakes in electoral rolls.
