TRS Plenary: As expected the Telangana Rastra Samiti (TRS) Plenary and 21st Formation Day focused on third term for the party in the state and TRS president K Chandrasekhar Rao’s national ambitions. Addressing the party workers at HICC, KCR said that there was need for a force that is guided by the people and for the people to lead the country and it could be on lines of TRS and even called as Bharata Rastra Samiti (BRS)!
KCR on Wednesday clarified that the country does not need new political fronts and the need of the hour is alternative political agenda.KCRsaid India had not developed up to the expectations of people even after 75 years of independence.“See how Singapore is developing with limited resources. They import mud from Indonesia. What is the problem with India? Our leaders were not in a position to utilise our resources. Our people’s aspirations were not fulfilled. It’s a fact,” the TRS supremo said.
The CM said Telangana was the fastest-growing state in India in all aspects and it would be a proud moment for all if Hyderabad sets the agenda for qualitative change in the country.Meanwhile, in the meeting, TRS will pass a resolution calling for a fight against the Union government over alleged violation of the federal structure.
The TRS will also pass a resolution demanding control of price rise, 33 per cent reservation for women in the legislature, congratulating the state government for purchasing paddy from the farmers, demanding the Union government to implement the Dalit Bandhu scheme across the country, demanding the reservation percentage according to the social conditions of Telangana, demanding the Centre to levy taxes within the divisible pool and determine the share of Telangana in Krishna water and demanding the Centre establish new Navodaya schools and others.
The event is also expected to mark the sounding of the poll bugle for the 2023 state assembly polls, with the ruling party setting its eyes for a third straight term since coming to power in 2014, when the state came into existence.
The meeting assumes significance with the Chief Minister making a swift move to play a key role in the national politics and forge an anti-BJP bloc before the 2024 general elections.The party has roped in the Indian Political Action Committee (I-PAC), once headed by poll strategist PrashantKishor, to help the party in coming polls. I-PAC had earlier engaged with the AAP, TMC and DMK.
