Hyderabad, Feb 12 (PTI) The Congress’ Telangana unit Tuesday alleged that the NDA government has failed to live up to expectations generated by the BJP before the 2014 general elections.

Congress’ Telangana president N Uttam Kumar Reddy asked partymen in the state to gear up for the coming Lok Sabha polls to ensure the party’s victory.

Reddy, who held a teleconference with the party cadre, said they should work for the victory of the Congress to make party chief Rahul Gandhi the Prime Minister.

The Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee has been holding meetings of various party committees since the last couple of days to prepare the party machinery for the electoral battle.

The party is also accepting applications from leaders aspiring to contest the polls.

Opposition leader in the assembly M Bhatti Vikramarka had yesterday indicated that the candidates for the Lok Sabha elections were likely to be finalised by the end of February.

Congress had contested the December seven Assembly elections in alliance with the TDP, CPI and the Telangana Jana Samiti (TJS). However, Congress managed to win only 19 among the total 119 seats.PTI SJR
