Hyderabad: Chief Minister and TRS president K Chandrashekhar Rao will chair the State executive committee meeting of the party on June 27.
The ruling TRS, which has a formidable force of over 45 lakh members, is said to be keen on increasing its strength in the State with enrolment of at least 60 lakh members over the next one month.
Chandrashekhar Rao will enrol his name at 2.30 pm, kick-starting the party membership drive followed by the executive committee meeting to discuss issues related to the membership drive, construction of district party offices and other issues of public importance. All the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha members, MLAs, MLCs, corporation chairpersons, and elected ZP chairpersons have been invited for the meeting. They will also renew their memberships.
TRS membership enrolment books will be handed over to MLAs and Assembly constituency in-charges. Around 11 counters have been arranged at Telangana Bhavan for all the Ministers, MPs, MLAs, MLCs and other party leaders to participate in the membership drive.
“The State executive committee members will be responsible for ensuring maximum enrolment. Each committee leader has been given the responsibility of two Assembly constituencies and enrol at least 60,000 persons per Assembly constituency as the party members,” said a TRS general secretary.
On the occasion, the Chief Minister is expected to make announcements regarding welfare measures mooted for the party cadre. He is also likely to direct the party leaders on the way forward to strengthen the party as well as emphasise the need to take the government’s welfare schemes to the people. The party is already extending a group insurance scheme of Rs 2 lakh each for the 45 lakh party members and is likely to increase the amount.
