Sonia to campaign in KCR's turf?

Sonia to campaign in KCR's turf?

Former Congress president and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi has so far not campaigned for the party in any of the ongoing assembly elections in the north – Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh or Rajasthan. But, she is getting ready to campaign in Telangana very soon.

According to party sources, Sonia Gandhi has agreed to campaign in Telangana for two days after November 19, much to the jubilation of the state party leaders. She is expected to address three public meetings each in north and south Telangana. The state leaders are chalking out her tour plan in consultation with AICC.

If the party leaders are to be believed, Sonia Gandhi would address a massive public meeting at Gajwel assembly constituency, represented by Telangana Rashtra Samithi president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao. The Congress has fielded strong leader Vanteru Pratap Reddy and Sonia’s meeting will be a direct challenge to KCR on his home turf.

The Congress leaders are hopeful that Sonia Gandhi’s visit will give a huge fillip to the party in giving a tough fight to the TRS. “She will be our trump card in the elections. People have not forgotten the fact that it was Sonia who had granted the Telangana state. She is the mother of Telangana. She will explain why she had to give Telangana, risking the party’s future in Andhra. She will speak about how KCR’s family had misused the power given to the Telangana people and tell them that the very purpose of granting Telangana state was lost,” a Congress leader said.

If Sonia can send the message strongly into the people, it will bring tremendous mileage to the Congress in the elections,” he added.
