Hyderabad, April 20: The stage is set for the 16th plenary of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) being held at Kompally on the outskirts of Hyderabad on Friday.
Over 15,000 delegates will attend the day-long meet which will begin with TRS president and Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao unfurling the party flag and paying tributes to Telangana martyrs.
He will then address the meet to set the tone for the day-long deliberations on a host of issues.
The ruling party has made elaborate arrangements for the meeting in view of the severe heat wave conditions.
The venue spread over 60 acres has been named as ‘Telangana Pragathi Pranganam’ and it can accommodate vehicles coming from the all 31 districts.
As many as 19 resolutions drafted by the resolution committee headed by K Keshava Rao will be widely discussed and adopted in the plenary.
As the TRS completed 33 months of rule and is gearing up 2019 elections, the plenary has assumed great significance.
This plenary is being viewed as a right occasion for midterm appraisal for the party policies and programmes and their implementation by the government.
Enthused by the success of the flagship programmes of the government such as total loan wavier for farmers, improved power supply for agriculture services, Mission Kakatiya, Mission Bhagiratha, Kalyana Lakshmi, Shaadi Mubarak, CM’s assurance for free supply of fertilizers and hike in quota for tribals and backward class, the party workers are going all out to strengthen the support base of the party.
The plenary will cover all aspects of the party and government; from launch of the agitation for separate statehood to Telangana being the number one state, fulfilment of electoral promises, said a party leader.
Home Minister Nayini Narsimha Reddy will announce the new president of the party. As only the nomination of KCR has been received for the top post, he is all set to be re-elected.
The cultural troops led by Rasamayi Balakishan, chairman of Samskruthika Saradhi will be giving special performance showcasing the culture, traditions and folklore of Telangana.
Keeping in view the sweltering heat, cool water and butter milk sachets will be distributed among delegates. About 1,000 volunteers will assist in the arrangements.
Municipal administration minister K. T. Rama Rao reviewed the arrangements for the plenary.
He said no hoardings or publicity material be used within in the GHMC limits for this event. Emergency medical vans and six fire tenders are put in place.
The party will organise its show of strength in the form of a massive rally in Warangal on April 27, the party’s formation day.
