Hyderabad: With the countdown for the GHMC polls starting on Tuesday, the ruling TRS is all geared up to hit the poll trail, scoring a march over its political opponents. Chief Minister and TRS president K Chandrashekhar Rao will chair a meeting of TRS Parliamentary Party and Legislative Party on Wednesday at Telangana Bhavan where the GHMC polls will be the main agenda.
All the MPs, MLAs and MLCs will participate in the meeting, and the Ministers were instructed to coordinate with party MPs and legislators from their respective districts to ensure their presence.
The TRS is way ahead of its political opponents in making preparations for the GHMC polls. The Chief Minister held a meeting recently with the TRS general secretaries and Ministers to discuss poll strategies. He will address the party MPs and legislators at a brainstorming session on the TRS poll strategy. He is also likely to hand over specific responsibilities to party leaders for the division-wise poll campaign being planned by the party leadership. Sources said the Chief Minister might even release the names of a few TRS candidates for the GHMC polls after the meeting.
Sources said several TRS leaders had already commenced their preparatory work in Hyderabad and they would be joined by leaders from various parts of the State.
While a few party leaders will be given the responsibilities of poll campaign work, others are expected to be tasked with placating aspirants who do not get party tickets. The party leadership is keen on focusing on the good work done by the TRS government in the GHMC limits, rather than getting into unnecessary verbal duals with the opposition parties.
“The Chief Minister is confident that the TRS will come up with a landslide victory in the GHMC polls as several surveys conducted by the party leadership had revealed favourable winds. We are not going to leave any stone unturned to ensure that his directions are executed totally and ensure that the party retains the GHMC,” said a Minister from Hyderabad.
TRS working president and Minister KT Rama Rao has already made it clear that the party was fully geared for the GHMC elections as and when it is held. The party leaders have already been advised to put behind the Dubbak bypoll result and work with double the vigour for the GHMC polls.
Considering the welfare and development activities taken up by the TRS government, the party leaders are confident that the party will retain the GHMC Mayor’s chair and improve on its 100 seats count in the outgoing council.
