October 26, 2012 - Hyderabad

Majority of the Congress senior leaders who attended the PCC meeting on Friday remained silent on key issues.

The three-hour long meeting at the Gandhi Bhavan was attended by the Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, PCC president Botcha Satyanarayana, Rajya Sabha member K Chiranjeevi, over two dozen minsters, MPs and former PCC presidents.

Congress senior leader V Hanumantha Rao on Friday demanded the Chief Minister to fulfill the promise made by AICC president Sonia Gandhi on the extending facility on LPG cylinders. The Chief Minster responding to it said that the government is considering the financial adjustments and looking to resource mobilization. He said it will consider the feasibility once the officials come out with a plan.

PCC president Botcha Satyanarayana said that the membership drive would be launched at the entire district Congress Committee offices on November 14. Botcha sought an explanation from the Union and State Ministers who failed to turn up at the meeting.
