Banking on the partial manifesto released which he believes has been getting some positive response at the field level, and on his already live welfare and development schemes, TRS boss and caretaker Chief Minister of Telangana K Chandrashekar Rao today directed the 105 TRS candidates in the poll fray and his MPs to fight for victory in the upcoming elections by intensifying their campaigns.
In a marathon meeting of over four hours, KCR closeted with the candidates and the MPs and asked them to take the prmises of the partial manifesto to the voters and woo them.
"Rebut strongly all the allegations and comments of the opposition parties and try to gain the upper hand during the campaign," KCR asked the leaders present.
KCR is understood to have told his men that the grand alliance had failed to sort out the seat-sharing among the allies who were sparring. "Cash in on this situation and the delay which will result from it in the opposition campaign starting by intensifying our campaign," he instructed his party leaders.
He also asked them to find out the response from the people in the rural areas to the manifesto promises.
The meeting also focused on the next round of election meetings to be addressed by KCR in all the districts that have not yet been covered. The party plans to conduct a total of 100 public meetings in the various districts in about 50 days or so by involving MLA contestants, MPs, local leaders and activists.
