Hyderabad, Nov.8 : Stating that there was no truth in the news reports that the list of Congress candidates for December 7 Assembly elections, TPCC president N Uttam Kumar Reddy today clarified that the list submitted to the party high command was under active consideration and the list might be approved on Friday.
The TPCC chief today appealed to the party activists and leaders, especially those aspiring for Congress tickets, to main calm and not to give credence to the unconfirmed news reports.
Uttam Kumar Reddy’s appeal came in the wake of protests at Gandhi Bhavan here by some ticket aspirants and a few others taking this battle to New Delhi to protest outside the Congress office where party leaders are grappling to conclude candidate selections as well as seat-sharing with TDP, TJS and CPI.
The TPCC president was currently in New Delhi to discuss candidates’ selection with Congress high command. He said consultations and discussions were still going on with respect to finalizing names of candidates.
