Telangana Rashtra Samiti upbeat

Special Correspondent

“Party will gain immensely from Jagan's moves”



BUOYANT: TRS president K. Chandrasekhar Rao addressing the party's executive meeting in Hyderabad on Wednesday.

HYDERABAD: Telangana Rashtra Samiti would gain immensely from the political waves being created by former Kadapa MP Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy after quitting Congress, as it could trigger mid-term elections.

In the event of such elections, Mr. Jagan will sweep in coastal-Rayalaseema regions with the TRS doing just the same in Telangana.

This was the overwhelming view of members of the executive of TRS which met at the party office here on Wednesday.

Its president K. Chandrasekhar Rao nodded in agreement and is reported to have said, “I am also hearing the same thing”. Sources said Mr. Rao did not recognise the presence of Telugu Desam in the election scenario. “It does not exist at all in Telangana.”

Asking the party cadre to be prepared for elections, Mr. Rao is believed to have said that the Centre could go for polls on its own at the back of 2G Spectrum scam and the State government could come crashing down due to threat from Mr. Jagan.

He reportedly made it clear that TRS would go it alone in the next elections.

Responding to a query on Mr. Rao's claim about mid-term elections, TRS floor leader in Assembly Eatala Rajender told reporters after the executive meeting that the party will exploit every “small opportunity” to form Telangana State. Therefore, the TRS would definitely invite elections.

Mr. Rajender said the meeting endorsed the programme finalised by Telangana Joint Action Committee on Sunday, launching an agitation from January 1.

The meeting demanded that an academic from Telangana be appointed Vice-Chancellor of Acharya N.G. Ranga Agricultural University. It noted that the incumbent was anti-Telangana.

Inviting trouble

The TRS president who addressed a meeting of workers later criticised the State government for provoking supporters of Telangana by binding over some important leaders in Nalgonda district. He warned that the government was inviting trouble by such actions.

He asked MPs and MLAs of the region to resign if the Bill forming Telangana State was not introduced in the budget session of Parliament.

The goal would be achieved if all of them resigned.

It became clear after the government withdrew criminal cases against students following the hunger strike by Congress MPs.
