Hyderabad: The Youth Congress in Telangana Monday sought 40 per cent of tickets to its leaders and workers in the coming municipal elections and representation to activists in the soon-to-be appointed district congress committees or else it would take "drastic decisions." In letter to state Congress chief N Uttam Kumar Reddy, Youth Congress president M Anil Kumar Yadav said youth Congress activists have been disappointed as they were denied tickets in last years assembly elections and the recent rural local body elections.
Yadav, who also sought representation to active youth congress workers in the soon-to-be-appointed district congress committees, said the state youth congress would take "drastic decisions" if their requests are not acceded to.
"I request (you) to sow the seeds for growth party's of future leadership by giving opportunity to those actively working in Youth Congress in the new District Congress Committees to be appointed soon and by allocating 40 per cent tickets in all municipalities to Youth Congress leaders/activists, without citing any false pretext.
I inform that the State Congress is going to take drastic decisions otherwise," Yadav said in the letter.
The Congress had suffered a massive defeat in the Telangana assembly elections held in December last year, but recovered some lost ground by winning three seats in the Lok Sabha polls.
The municipal elections are expected to take place early next month. (PTI)
