APCC chief YS Sharmila Reddy has declared that if the Congress party asks, former Rajya Sabha Member KVP Ramachandra Rao, former minister N Raghuveera Reddy, and former Central minister Pallam Raju should brace themselves to contest the Kadapa Lok Sabha seat in the upcoming elections.
During a meeting with the Congress Party Kadapa district leaders at the party office Andhra Ratna Bhavan in Vijayawada on Thursday, she said that even she is not exempt from such directives. APCC Media Committee Chairman Dr N Tulasi Reddy and other senior party leaders attended the meeting.
Following the meeting with the Kadapa district leaders, Sharmila addressed the media at Andhra Ratna Bhavan. She urged party leaders to prepare for the electoral battle ahead.
“It is imperative for any Congress party leader, irrespective of their position, to be prepared to contest elections from any constituency in the state,” she stated. “Additionally, everyone should be willing to relinquish seats for the party’s greater good to safeguard against the authoritarianism of the YSRCP in the state.”
Sharmila also reiterated the Congress party’s opposition to the privatisation of the Visakha Steel Plant. She questioned why the ruling YSRCP did not take measures to prevent the privatization initiated by the BJP-led central government.
Furthermore, she raised concerns about various pending issues in the state and directed her criticism towards state government advisor Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy. Sharmila also questioned the silence of Kadapa MP YS Avinash Reddy on matters related to the Visakha Steel Plant and Kadapa Steel Plant.
She demanded accountability from Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, MP Avinash Reddy, and Advisor Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy for the delay in sanctioning the Kadapa Steel Plant, emphasizing that the people of the state are aware and prepared to hold the YSRCP accountable.
Expressing confidence in the electorate’s readiness to defeat the ruling YSRCP in the upcoming elections, Sharmila mentioned the ongoing process of selecting candidates. Despite receiving 1,500 applications from aspirants, no candidates have been announced yet.
