TRS leader and former SAAP Director Rajanala Srihari today distributed liquor and chicken on the occasion Of Dussehra in the Warangal East constituency — ahead of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao's scheduled launch of a national party tomorrow. It will be a new-look Telangana Rashtra Samithi, which will probably be called Bharat Rashtra Samithi — along the lines of the experiment NT Rama Rao had tried to conduct decades ago to see his dream of turning a national leader come true.
K Chandrasekhar Rao made his national ambition obvious during the campaign for the presidential election, refusing to join the opposition camp that supported the candidature of Yashwant Sinha.
TRS politician Rajanala Srihari bought 200 chicken and 200 liquor bottles for distribution today. He then distributed them to 200 porters. Srihari and his team called the porters for a gathering where cutouts of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao and state IT & Industries Minister KT Rama Rao were erected as the poor received free chicken and liquor bottles.
Rajanala Srihari said that prayers would be offered on the occasion of Dussehra for the chief minister to become the national party president. He said that special pujas were offered for KCR to become the prime minister and KTR to become the state party president.
K Chandrasekhar Rao is likely to announce the details of his national agenda on the occasion of Dussehra. Yesterday, he had clarified that the TRS general body meeting would be held on Dussehra (5 October) at 11 AM in Telangana Bhavan.
Sources said it's that K Chandrasekhar Rao would announce the name of his national party on the occasion of Dussehra. There are speculations that he may reveal the details of his approach to national politics after the meeting. A delegation of TRS leaders will leave for Delhi to get the name of the party changed at the Election Commission office, the sources said, adding that he would address a public gathering on 9 October in Delhi.
Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee chairman and former MP Madhu Goud Yashki reacted to the development, saying, "It is a meaningless move by the chief minister of Telangana to form a national party. He has cheated the people of Telangana and now wants to cheat the nation's people. This is just a cover-up of his failures and a tactic to divert the money from the Delhi liquor scam of his family members."
