Cong wants to revitalize its visibilities with Bharat Jodo Yatra in Telugu States
Hyderabad: Desperate to reclaim shed ground in the Telugu states, the Congress has massive assumptions from Rahul Gandhi’s continuous ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’.
Conscious of the massive probabilities in Andhra Pradesh where it does not have a solitary MP or MLA, the celebration has actually intended the Yatra in such a fashion that it will certainly cover much less than 100 kilometres.
However, the insurance coverage will certainly be comprehensive in Telangana, where the celebration sees an actual possibility for itself in the Assembly elections arranged following year.
The Congress leaders in Telangana are excitedly waiting on the Yatra to go into the state as they think that it will certainly instill brand-new excitement amongst the celebration staff as well as assist prepare the organisation for the poll fight in advance.
The Yatra, which has actually gotten great feedback in Kerala as well as Karnataka, briefly touched Andhra Pradesh on the night of October 14 prior to returning toKarnataka Rahul Gandhi in addition to thousands of fans strolling with him gotten to Obulapuram in Andhra Pradesh’s Anantapur area to a cozy welcome by state Congress principal Sailajanath, functioning president N. Tulasi Reddy, elderly leader Raghuveera Reddy as well as others.
Large variety of celebration employees from Anantapur, Kurnool as well as Kadapa areas signed up with theYatra After covering 5.4 kilometres in Andhra Pradesh, the Yatra returned to Karnataka’s Ballari area.
Rahul Gandhi is arranged to get to Aluru in Kurnool area on the evening of October 16. There will certainly be a break on October 17 for the AICC governmental elections. The following day the Yatra will certainly cover the Aluru constituency. According to Tulasi Reddy, the Yatra will certainly travel through the Adoni constituency on October 19, Yemmiganur on October 20 as well as Mantralayam on October 21. The long march will certainly after that come back Karnataka.
Andhra Pradesh Congress leaders think that Rahul Gandhi’s Yatra will certainly assist raise the spirits of the celebration staffs.
“The Yatra will definitely draw huge public support in the state. The party leaders and workers are all waiting eagerly for it,” claimed Tualsi Reddy.
During the Yatra in Andhra Pradesh, Rahul Gandhi is most likely to state the guarantee that if Congress is elected to power at the Centre in 2024, it will certainly accord Special Category Status (SCS) to Andhra Pradesh.
SCS to the residuary state was guaranteed by the Congress- led UPA government at the time of bifurcation of unified Andhra Pradesh in 2014 as well as this dedication became part of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act 2014. However, the BJP-led NDA, which concerned power at the Centre in 2014, decreased to give SCS to Andhra Pradesh on the ground that this would certainly cause comparable needs from various other states.
The Congress leaders state both the previous Telugu Desam Party (TDP) government as well as today YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) routine fell short to install stress on the Centre to obtain the SCS to the state.
Political experts state the Congress still encounters a substantial difficulty to pick up inAndhra Pradesh In the 2014 elections, it was essentially erased as a result of public temper over bifurcation of the state. It attracted an empty in both Assembly as well as Lok Sabha as well as there was no renovation in 2019.
“People of Andhra Pradesh are still reeling under the after-effects of bifurcation, and it is evident the people there blame the Congress for this situation. The party has lost its leadership and cadres to other political outfits and does not have enough base to put up a decent show if the Bharat Jodo Yatra enters the state,” claimed political expert Palvai Raghavendra Reddy.
Compared to various other states, the Yatra will certainly cover a little component of Andhra Pradesh as well as the course map has actually been intentionally intended in this way.
“While Congress wants to showcase an upwards trend with the Yatra, entering Andhra Pradesh might prove counter-productive for the party. It also suggests that Congress is in no hurry to revive itself immediately in Andhra Pradesh,” he claimed.
Telangana is the state where the Congress wishes to concentrate. Though the celebration had actually intended to politically profit by taking the Telangana state, it landed in a circumstance of neither right here neither there. All its hopes were rushed when individuals elected Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) to power in 2014 as well as ever since the Congress’ chart has actually gotten on the decrease with exodus of its leaders as well as staffs.
Despite signing up with hands with the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) in 2018, the Congress experienced one more loss by TRS, which maintained power with a substantial bulk. The Congress ended up a bad 2nd in the 119-member Assembly with simply 18 seats as well as within a couple of months a minimum of a loads of its MLAs abandoned to TRS as well as the celebration shed also the condition of major resistance in the Assembly.
The efficiency of the Congress in Assembly by-elections has actually additionally been devastating. It fell short to maintain Huzurnagar which was abandoned by Uttam Kumar Reddy after he was chosen to the Lok Sabha in 2019.
With the BJP arising more powerful by winning 2 Assembly by-elections, the Congress is additional demoralised. Infighting in the celebration complying with modification of state management last year left the organisation in chaos.
The Bharat Jodo Yatra is getting in Telangana each time when Congress is dealing with an acid examination in the Munugode Assembly by-election, triggered by the resignation of its lawmaker Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy that switched over commitments to BJP. The November 3 by-election is the last possibility for Congress to reclaim some shed ground prior to the following year’s Assembly surveys.
It remains in this context that Rahul Gandhi’s Yatra has actually presumed relevance for the grand old celebration in its previous garrison. The celebration’s state device is wanting to attract optimum gas mileage from the Yatra to tone up well to tackle both TRS as well as BJP.
“While the response in Kerala and Karnataka has been overwhelming, the Telangana state unit has to work hard to ensure people connect with the Yatra, and the message of Rahul Gandhi reaches every village across the state. In a state where regional sentiments are a big factor, it would be interesting to see how crowds respond to the Congress scion’s Yatra and meetings. Will the people of Telangana respond sympathetically towards the party which played a big role in the formation of the state is something which only time will tell,” claimed Raghavendra Reddy.
He additionally mentioned that the Bharat Jodo Yatra will certainly touch just a few places in Telangana, while totally disregarding Andhra Pradesh.
The course map of Bharat Jodo Yatra in Telangana is yet to be settled. It is still unclear if the Yatra will certainly cover the state for 15 days as initially intended.
The state management excited on the high command to consist of Hyderabad in theYatra As per the changed routine, Rahul Gandhi will certainly see the historical Charminar as well as the Necklace Road where he will certainly deal with a conference after garlanding his grandma Indira Gandhi’s statuary on October 31 on the event of her fatality wedding anniversary.
