I am daughter of Telangana: Renuka

Congress leader Renuka Choudary, who was declared elected to the Rajya Sabha, has claimed to be the daughter of the Telangana soil.

Talking to the media here on Saturday, Renuka said she came to New Delhi to thank party president Sonia Gandhi for selecting her for the Upper House of Parliament. She said all were her friends.

Renuka was given a warm welcome by party workers on her arrival here for the first time after her election. There were also party workers from Haryana among those who welcomed her. She immediately rushed to 10 Janapath, to meet Sonia Gandhi.

Speaking to the media later, she said that no one has opposed her candidature. Replying to questions, she said there was no possibility of mid-term polls in the country. When asked about the possibility of her joining the Union cabinet, Renuka said that she had no information on that. She maintained that RS seat was not a position to her, but a responsibility. She said that all of them would work as soldiers for strengthening the Congress party under the leadership of the Congress party.
