TRS Plenary: The celebrations of two decades of formation of Telangana Rastra Samiti (TRS) and the party plenary went on a grand note. Everyone talked about the vent. The city of Hyderabad was drowned in pink and all roads lead to Hitex where the event was held. The one day plenary was attended by around 6,000 workers and leaders from across the state. All the top-wigs of the party were seen to have made it a point to attend this mega event.
Even as the workers were astonished by the arrangements that were made at Hitex, the party founder, K Chandrasekhar Rao was chosen unanimously for the ninth time as the party president. He continues to be the undisputed king of the party. Despite having such great reputation and leading the party from liberation movement to running a government, KCR seems to have lost fire in the belly.
This speech at plenary was watched out for by the party leaders and workers, but it seemed that KCR disappointed everyone. There was lack of Telangana sentiment in his speech. The scene at the plenary was such that the oratory skills of KCR didn’t bind people to seat through it, and many workers were seen heading towards the lunch area. Despite volunteers trying to stop them, many people were seen walking out, leaving many seats vacant at the venue.
Though it was disappointment, there were important decisions, amendments in the party constitution that were approved by the plenary without any hesitation. One such important amendment in the party rule book is that whenever party president is unavailable, the working president will handle all the party matters.
So this plenary was nothing but to pave way for KCR’s son and working president of TRS KT Rama Rao. It is known fact among the media and officials as well as TRS party leaders that KCR will not be available many-a-times. With this new amendment, KCR has handed over the baton of the party to his son. According to political analysts, slowly KCR would hand over the Chief Minister ship also to KTR and see that he becomes the next CM unopposed.
