TRS supremo and caretaker Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao is planning to resume his poll campaigning in a few days.
According to informed sources, KCR, who held discussions with his senior party leaders today, has decided to campaign continuously post-September 23. His plan is to grab the attention of the people earlier than the opposition parties, which he believes are still lagging behind and are yet to forge their proposed alliance.
The manifesto committee will submit its report to the TRS boss soon, based on which KCR will zero in on the dates and the places for the public meetings to be conducted. Apparently he is to address his second and third public meetings in southern Telangana districts like Mahabubnagar and Nalgonda where irrigation projects have gotten back to life after a long time in his regime. The ruling party is preparing to conduct a total of 100 public meetings in just 50 days as the EC is preparing to conduct early polls in the state.
After the Pragathi Nivedana Sabha at Kongara Kalan that had a less than expected response from the public, the TRS hierarchy plans to get at least one lakh people to each of these future public meetings to make them successes. The TRS chief's poll planks this time will be welfare, progress, irigation projects and the opposition parties "stalling growth".
