'UPA gets power two times only due to YSR's efforts'

AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh said that Congress took the decision on formation of Telangana only after discussing the same with all political parties in the state.

Speaking at the two day party meeting in Hyderabad on Sunday, he said, “The state of Telangana could become a reality only due to the initiative of Congress and Sonia Gandhi. But, we have failed to highlight the same in the people of the state. It is true that Congress suffered in the recent elections with the decision on Telangana. We could not win even one seat in Andhra Pradesh.”

Digvijay praised the valuable services rendered by late chief minister Dr.Y.S.Rajasekhar Reddy to Congress party in Andhra Pradesh.

“The death of Rajasekhar Reddy is very unfortunate. The Congress party could come to power two times in Andhra Pradesh only because of him. The UPA could gain power at centre for two successive terms only with the effort of him,” said Digvijay Singh.
