Hyderabad: Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president N Uttam Kumar Reddy on Sunday directed the party workers to gear up for the next Panchayat elections.

Addressing a meeting of senior leaders at Gandhi Bhavan here, Reddy said that the coming Panchayat elections in the State would be crucial as they precede the general elections.

He asked all the Congress workers and leaders to work actively to strengthen the party at the booth level.

The Congress leader said that AICC Vice President Rahul Gandhi has directed all the State units to focus on strengthening the party’s presence on social media. For this, 50,000 social media coordinators would be appointed across the State, he said, adding that 31,656 WhatsApp Groups would be created for all the polling booths and other social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

Expressing concern over reports of tampering of EVMs in recently held elections, Reddy demanded that the Panchayat elections be held only through ballot papers. He said that the government would be pressurised and the TPCC would pass a resolution in this regard.

He also directed party leaders to gather information regarding non-clearance of interest on waived-off crop loans by the State government, besides visiting market yards in their districts to check whether farmers were being paid Minimum Support Price for their produce.
