During the last plenary, KCR had made all the delegates take down notes about the input subsidy scheme for farmers.
Having already introduced various novel welfare schemes in the state during the past four years of his rule, he now plans to consolidate TRS position among electors such as farmers, women, BCs, SCs, and STs ahead of the 2019 elections.

Some of the flagship programmes to be brought up at the plenary include Aasara pensions, KCR Kits, Kalyana Laxmi/Shaadi Mubarak, construction of double bedroom houses, Rythu Bandhu, providing crop investment support and other agriculture incentive schemes, besides irrigation projects like Kaleshwaram project, fish, and sheep distribution schemes among others.

The Chief Minister is set to lay out an action plan to strengthen the party's base by undertaking yatras, organizing door-to-door meetings and holding public meetings at constituency/mandal headquarters.
At the plenary, KCR will address the party on achievements of the party since its formation and its role in the development of Telangana which has become a role model for the country. He will also address the first-of-its-kind initiatives taken up by Telangana which were later picked up by other states and are being implemented in the country.
On the Federal Front proposal, the TRS chief will also share his vision for India and the role of TRS in national politics to bring about a qualitative change.
All the delegates/ participants will be provided kits containing TRS resolutions, government's welfare measures being implemented and the achievements of the schemes in the state.

Folk artistes led by Telangana Samskrutika Chairman Rasamayi Balkishan will be seen giving cultural performances at the venue.
For the public representatives like MPs, MLAs, MLCs, constituency in-charges, State Executive Committee members and other leaders holding nominated posts, separate enclosures have been arranged at the venue including separate food stalls for the VIPs.
KCR on Monday formed a committee headed by MP K Keshava Rao for framing and finalizing resolutions based on the achievements of TRS government to be taken up in the convention.
According to the sources, the CM has directed the officials to keep the resolutions short and descriptive. Of all the resolutions, the focus is more on the resolution being drafted to explain to people the role TRS is going to play in national politics by pitching the proposed Federal Front.
Earlier, there used to be 13 to 14 resolutions but this year, TRS is likely to adopt eight to 10 resolutions at the plenary affirming its commitment to the welfare of all sections of people such as farmers, women, unemployed youth, minorities, Dalits, and STs.
Sources reveal that there may be political resolutions including the reservations to Minorities and SC, STs.
Each resolution will be proposed by a TRS senior leader while another leader will speak supporting the resolution to set the process of discussion in motion.
