Prime Minister Narendra Modi's proposed visit to Andhra Pradesh to address a public meeting at Guntur on January 6 led to a speculation that he might make an announcement of special category status to the state as a special case in view of growing sentiment among the people.
It's just a week since the results of the assembly elections in Telangana were announced, in which the Telangana Rashtra Samithi emerged victorious with thumping majority over Maha Kootami or grand alliance of four opposition parties in Telangana.
When Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who took the charge for a second successive term on Thursday last, held a review meeting on the progress of ongoing irrigation projects on Saturday, one person who was conspicuously missing was T Harish Rao.
The Backward Castes of Telangana received a big jolt from KCR soon after he assumed office for the second term.
Those who were expecting changes in the style of functioning of Telangana Rashtra Samithi president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao at least in his second stint must be surely disappointed.
Although itís been nearly a week since the TRS victory, only KCR and Mahmood Ali have taken oath as the Chief Minister and Home Minister respectively.
The predictions made by "survey specialist" and former Congress MP from Vijayawada Lagadapati Rajagopal a couple of days before the polling in Telangana assembly elections held on December 7, seem to have ruined the prospects of several Congress party candidates.
Former MLAs Komatireddy Venkat Reddy and A Revanth Reddy, who had been in deep shock over their unexpected defeat in the recent assembly elections, are desperate to stage a comeback into active politics.
Now that elections to Andhra Pradesh assembly along with the Lok Sabha polls are just four to five months away, Bharatiya Janata Party is planning to go all out to decimate Telugu Desam Party, though it has little stakes in the state.
The appointment of working president for any political party is purely its internal matter and is part of its organizational functioning.
TRS leaders and Sircilla MLA elect KT Rama Rao took oath as TRS working president today at around 11.56 am in Telangana Bhavan in the presence of party leaders, MLAs and MLCs.
Reiterating that Chandrababu Naidu has been changing colours faster than that of a chameleon, YSR Congress Party President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said that the rampant corruption in the state had its reflection in Telangana elections with money flow from TDP channel and changing tunes of TDP leadership.
TRS leader T Harish Rao and irrigation projects have become synonymous in Telangana.
Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) working President K.T. Rama Rao on Saturday predicted that the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) will become irrelevant and inconsequentional, both in Andhra Pradesh and national politics after 2019 elections.
A media owner who is extremely loyal to the Telugu Desam Party and promotes the TDP in every possible manner recently incurred a loss of Rs 50 crore.
