They also want to thank her for granting statehood, which might be one of the main talking points in her speech. As Sonia is going to be the first star attraction for the Congress since they started campaigning, the TPCC leaders feel that she would also boost the campaigning spirit among the party cadre and the Grand Alliance (MahaKutami) allies.

Speaking to the media at the grounds, TPCC treasurer Guduru Narayana Reddy said that the people of Telangana were aware that it was the Congress who had given statehood and Sonia Gandhi in particular was the one who signed the bill for separate statehood and fulfilled their decades-long dream of a separate Telangana, he said. Sonia Gandhi’s visit will certainly ensure the victory of the Mahakutami, he said.

Her son and Congress president Rahul Gandhi will also accompany her and it is said that Grand alliance partners T-TDP and TJS presidents L Ramana and Professor Kodandaram might also share the stage with Sonia Gandhi. Rumors are that BC rights activists Manda Krishna Madiga and R Krishnaiah are also expected to be there in an attempt to pacify some of the BC leaders who were denied tickets .

Apart from taking on TRS chief Chandrasekar Rao, Sonia will remind the TRS about the role of Congress in achieving statehood for Telangana, KCR's unfulfilled promises and also release the complete Congress Manifesto today.
