Addressing the Youth Congress Greater Hyderabad unit meeting at Prakasham Hall in Gandhi Bhavan here on Saturday, Uttam Kumar Reddy said the credit of initiating developmental activities by identifying the needs of the people living in Hyderabad, goes to previous Congress governments only.

As part of it, the then Congress government launched Metro Rail Project, Outer Ring Road (ORR), Express Highway, International Airport, Drinking Water from Krishna, Godavari Rivers, Ration Cards, Pensions, Houses and development of Old City.
Keeping the GHMC elections in view, the TRS government was claiming all developmental activities launched by the Congress government as theirs, Uttam Kumar Reddy alleged and said the Ministers and leaders were creating “tamasha” by roaming across the Hyderabad city. He called upon the Youth Congress leaders to wage war against the government and strengthen the Congress in Hyderabad city. He also suggested that the Youth Congress leaders strive for victory of the Congress candidates in the GHMC elections.
