Hyderabad, July 22 : PCC president Botsa Satyanarayana on Monday stated that the Congress party has always strengthen the local bodies in the State.
Addressing a press conference at Gandhi Bhavan here, Botsa dismissed the allegations leveled by opposition parties that the Congress Government deliberately delayed the local bodies’ election fearing defeat. He said that the elections got delayed due to different court cases and the government was not involved with the decisions.
Botas said that people were behind the ruling party and that was the reason why as many as 1,040 candidates affiliated to the Congress party were unanimously elected to the Sarpanch posts. He said that TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu’s padayatra failed to impress the crowd and the YSR Congress party too did not make an impact in the polls. He hoped that the Congress party would strengthen its base across the State in the local bodies’ elections. INN
