Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, who formally announced change of name of his party from Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) as Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) at a grand function at Telangana Bhavan on Friday, came up with a new slogan for his national mission.

“Ab ki baar, Kisan Sarkar” will be the main agenda of the BRS in national politics.

“Our party will strive to bring a qualitative change in national politics and in governance to ensure all round development of the country with focus on agriculture sector,” KCR declared while addressing the party leaders after the launch of the BRS.

According to the BRS sources, KCR is expected to inaugurate the party’s national office in Delhi on December 14, where he is likely to address the national media to explain to the people of the nation about the party’s national plans.

Stating that the BRS would hoist the pink flag in New Delhi in the next elections, KCR said he would strive bring a farmer-friendly government at the Centre.

“We are going to play a vital role in national politics,” he thundered, He adding that the Telangana model would be replicated across the country through optimum utilisation of available natural resources.

The BRS president said youth, who form 52 per cent of the country’s total population, should be made partners in the nation’s development by bringing new economic reforms. 

The BRS chief emphasised the need to safeguard the federal spirit of the nation and ensure basic facilities for all in strict adherence to the Constitution of India.

He said the party was formulating new policies covering agriculture, economy, environment, irrigation and drinking water, power and women empowerment, among others.

“In democracy, people should be the ultimate winners, not political parties. The country urgently needs a new economic policy. There should be no more water wars between States,” he said.

KCR also announced that in alliance with the Janata Dal (S), the BRS would contest its first elections in Karnataka where the Assembly polls were scheduled to be held in May next year.

He extended complete support to the JD(S) and wanted the party leader and former Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy to assume the position once again.

Brushing aside criticism from the Opposition parties over the BRS foraying into national politics, he advised party leaders to ignore them.

The party had surpassed similar criticism and went on to achieve Telangana apart from developing the young State into a role model for others, he said.
