Nalgonda MP Capt N Uttam Kumar Reddy has expressed strong confidence that the Congress party will win 75 seats and form the next government in Telangana in the upcoming elections. He also predicted that the Congress will achieve electoral success in the elections across five states and claim majority seats in the parliamentary elections scheduled for May next year, potentially making Rahul Gandhi the Prime Minister.
Reddy made these remarks after several activists from BRS and YSRTP parties in Mellachervu Mandal of Huzur Nagar Constituency joined the Congress party on Monday.
He conveyed the Congress party’s demand for the immediate implementation of the Women’s Reservation Bill in the ongoing election. Reddy emphasized the party’s unwavering support for the bill, which he called Congress leader Sonia Gandhi’s dream. He criticized the BJP government for stalling the bill.
Capt Reddy also raised concerns about land issues. He alleged that Dalits and tribals had not received their entitled three acres of land, while a local MLA had reportedly acquired 300 acres. He also lamented the non-implementation of the promised 12 per cent reservation for Muslims and the absence of Madiga community representation in ministerial positions. Reddy criticized the omission of Mudiraj candidates from the ticket distribution and accused the current government of prioritizing alcohol taxation over implementing their stated schemes.
The Congress MP said that he would win the Huzur Nagar seat with a majority of over 50,000 votes. He highlighted the developmental efforts undertaken by the previous Congress government in Mellachervu Mandal.
