The negative feedback being received from the people through the intelligence department and not-so-encouraging survey results in the recent past seems to have put Telangana Rashtra Samithi president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on high alert.
According to party sources, KCR is not happy with the way his party leaders are failing to counter the latest onslaught by the Congress party, which has adopted aggressive tactics to attack the ruling TRS.
A series of meetings being held by Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee and the secret ground work being prepared by Telangana Joint Action Committee president Prof M Kodandaram in exploiting the unrest among the youth and the students has built up a sort of anti-establishment atmosphere in the state.
Apparently realising that this anti-incumbency might pick up and grow stronger in the coming months, KCR is learnt to have decided to take a plunge on his own into the people and counter the opposition.
He is planning to hold a series of public meetings in all the 31 districts in the next 12 months to rejuvenate the party cadre and also effectively take his government’s achievements into the people.
The hurry of the TRS chief is also attributed to the reports from the Centre that Prime Minister Narendra Modi might advance the general elections by at least four to six months.
So, KCR has little time to cover up his failures and create an aura of positivity around the TRS by launching a massive publicity blitzkrieg.
In all probability, the district-wise tours and meetings would begin after Sankranti festival. Simultaneously, KCR will also ensure roping in as many Congress leaders as possible into the TRS so as to beat the Opposition below the belt.
KCR will also plan meetings with caste groups like Yadavas, Mudirajs, Gangaputras, Nayee Brahmins, Rajakas and Goud communities in each Assembly constituency and lure them with a lot of sops, sources said.
