WARANGAL: It may be a coincidence, but three VIPs who were seated on the dais at ‘Maha Garjana' reminded one of the national flag. Actor-turned politician Vijayashanti sported a green colour sari and TRS chief K. Chandrasekhar Rao who sat next to her wore a white shirt and trousers. Social activist and chief guest Swami Agnivesh appeared in saffron attire.
Despite the best of arrangements, Mr. Chandrasekhar Rao found it difficult to reach the dais with people blocking the way even in the areas earmarked for VIPs only. The leaders on the dais had to repeatedly appeal to the crowds to make way for Mr. Rao and also to the police to allow his car to reach the dais.
Vehicular traffic came to a standstill at Hasanparthy on Karimnagar side and beyond Kazipet on Hyderabad road. Wooing minorities
Mr. Rao appeased the Muslim community by inviting three leaders to address the gathering and tactfully avoided not to call any politicians from the community. Hasim Khan of Jamaat-e-Islami Hind said the community would benefit in separate Telangana State. Other speakers too said Muslims were with the TRS and Mr. Rao.
