BRS meet: KCR targets two birds with one stone – national image, counter dissidence

Telengana, ,18/1: With the ruling Bharat Rashtra Samithi’s (BRS) first public meeting in Khammam on Wednesday, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao aims to step on to the national platform while not losing sight of the local pressure points for the party.

The BRS meet at Khammam town saw Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, his Punjab counterpart Bhagwant Mann, Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan, Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav and CPI’s D Raja sharing the dais with KCR.


JD(S) leader H D Kumaraswamy who has been supporting KCR’s foray into national politics could not attend the BRS meet, due to his ongoing Pancharatna Rath Yatra (statewide tour) in Karnataka, and the same has been communicated to Telangana, his office said.


The TRS party (before transforming into BRS) secured only one seat out 10 in the undivided Khammam District which also has considerable presence of Left parties. The Congress won seven while Telugu Desam Party got two seats in 2018 polls. However, six of the congress and two of the TDP members switched over to TRS
