Hyderabad: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president A Revanth Reddy found fault with the TRS MPs’ decision to boycott the remaining part of the winter session of Parliament and wondered how the State government would extract an assurance from the Centre on paddy procurement.
Addressing a press conference in New Delhi on Tuesday, Revanth alleged that the decision to boycott Parliament was part of a TRS-BJP deal. “The TRS MPs enacted the protest drama for a week to prevent other opposition parties from having discussion on farm bills and other important issues,” he charged.
He said 18 opposition parties were fighting against the BJP government on farm laws and other issues. “But only TRS MPs disrupted the proceedings to sabotage the action plan of all other opposition parties,” he alleged.
Meanwhile, TPCC working president Mahesh Kumar Goud said the State unit of Congress would commence the party’s digital membership drive from December 9 on AICC chief Sonia Gandhi’s birthday. The party aims to register nearly 30 lakh members and 34,000 enrollers will participate in the digital membership drive.
