Cong MPs in AP asked to do `soul searching`
Hyderabad: Seeking to enforce discipline in the party vertically divided over the Telangana issue, the Andhra Pradesh Congress on Friday asked its MPs and other leaders
to exercise "utmost restraint" in their actions and while talking to media.
"It is high time we did some soul searching whether it is right on our part to bring in disrepute to the party, either through our actions or controversial statements before the
press and media," AP Congress president D Srinivas said in a letter to the MPs.
"As members of a most democratic political party in the country, we have all the freedom to express our viewpoint at all levels -- from the DCC, PCC to AICC and the High Command. Hence, we may need to exercise utmost restraint in such crucial moments to uphold our dignity and the honour of the Congress party, thereby, strengthening the leadership of Sonia Gandhi ji," he said.
The letter comes in the wake of a war of words and a vertical divide in the Congress state unit between leaders of Telangana and non-Telangana regions.
The divide is such that the Congress leaders from Telangana are seeking a separate Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) for the region.
