Pradesh Congress Committee president Botsa Satyanarayana on Friday said that the Telugu Desam Party would be confined to third position in the ensuing by-elections in the Telangana region.
Talking to media persons before proceeding to Hyderabad, he said that it would be difficult for the TDP to win even one seat in the ensuing by-elections. Stating that the Congress leaders were working collectively for the ensuing by-elections, he expressed confidence that the party would emerge victorious in the all seven constituencies.
Botsa said that there were no differences among the MPs, Ministers and MLAs and all were working collectively and responsibly to emerge victorious in the by-elections. Stating that the main rivals in by-elections were TDP and YSR Congress party, he denied media reports that the Congress has become weak in the State due to corruption.
Stating that a national party like Congress only could take a decision on controversial Telangana State issue, he expressed confidence that the Congress would emerge successfully in Telangana region too. He hoped that the high command would nominate Tirupati MLA K Chiranjeevi for the Rajya Sabha soon and elevate him as Central minister as per the merger agreement. (INN)
