Congress leaders from Malleswaram meet YSR
They tell Chief Minister that party is intact in the constituency
A week after Congress legislator from Malleswaram Buragadda Vedavyas joined the Praja Rajyam Party, party leaders from the constituency in Krishna district called on Chief Minister Y. S.Rajasekhara Reddy on Wednesday.
Leaders from Malleswaram, which will become Pedana constituency following the delimitation exercise, re-assured the Chief Minister that mere resignation of an MLA would not mar the chances of the ruling party in the general elections. Led by Animal Husbandry Minister Mandali Budha Prasad and Rural Water Supply Minister Pinnamaneni Venkateswara Rao, the constituency leaders said that the party was intact. “We will ensure that the Congress party retains the seats in the next elections,” the leaders told Dr. Reddy.
The Chief Minister said that developmental and welfare programmes would bring back the Congress party comfortably. He asked the cadres to work hard and go to the people and highlight the work done by the ruling party in the last four years and nine months. Machilipatnam MP Badiga Ramakrishna and party MLC Ilapuram Venkaiah were also present.
