  • TRS to send report to GoM in 2-3 days
  • Says not eyeing Chief Minister’s post
  • Defends partymen aspiring to form govt

Dismissing speculation about a possible merger with Congress in future, K Chandrasekhar Rao, the TRS chief, said that his party would play a crucial role in the reconstruction and development of the new state of Telangana. He directed party functionaries to take its vision to the public across the region and strengthen the party. Addressing a press conference after the state executive meeting at Telangana Bhavan on Friday, he said that the party’s poll strategies and other things would be revealed at an ‘appropriate time’ after the separate state bill got the approval of both the houses of parliament. He said there was nothing wrong if TRS leaders aspired for a TRS government in the new state. “TRS is a recognised party, which spearheaded Telangana movement for the last 13 years and ensured realisation of the goal eventually,” he said

What is wrong if party loyalists hope to become MLAs, MLCs or MPs? Even all surveys including those conducted by national networks are pointing towards TRS scoring a resounding win in next general elections. Public would generally repose faith in a political party which they hope will fulfill their aspirations,” KCR said.
The TRS chief reiterated that he was not eyeing the CM post but he would be a vanguard to ensure that all blueprints conceptualised by him and TRS think tank would be fully implemented.
In a strongly-worded reaction, KCR said that any move by the Union Government to keep law and order or other departments under its control would be nothing but ‘insulting’ the Telangana community. "Is it not possible for Telangana government to take care of its citizens in Hyderabad," he questioned.
Relations between the new state and the Centre would be severely affected if a new law, different from the laws in 28 states, was introduced in Telangana, KCR warned.
He dismissed the talk about security concerns and special powers to Hyderabad because of sizable population of Seemandhras in the city. According to him, there was a major chunk of Seemandhra population even in 9 districts, outside Hyderabad who were living without any qualms and worries. “Moreover can Telugu people demand separate provisions because of their big numbers in Mumbai or even in United States. There is no logic or reasoning to this demand,” he felt. KCR went on to add that Hyderabad was the only big city for whole of Telangana region while Seemandhra boasts of many major cities like Visakhapatnam, Vijayawada, Tirupati, Rajahmundry, and Guntur. With the latest technology available at hand, it is not a big deal to construct infrastructure in the new capital rapidly, the TRS supremo opined.
All these aspects would be incorporated in the party report to GoM being prepared by K Keshav Rao and others. This report, which was in final stages, would be sent to GoM in 2-3 days and would also be released to the press, he informed. He also slammed Chandrababu Naidu, who he said was trying his best to stall the formation of Telangana. Demanding that Naidu make his stand clear, KCR called upon Telangana Telugu Desam leaders not to continue in the party and cheat the public of the region. Replying to a query, he said that his party was least bothered about YSR Congress Party’s ‘Samaikya Shankaravam’ meeting in Hyderabad.
