Hyderabad: The NRI wing of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) will soon organise debates among NRIs representing different States on people’s agenda for qualitative change in national politics as proposed by Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao recently and garner support in this regard.
They vowed to support the Chief Minister in his efforts to weave a coalition of like-minded political forces to bring qualitative change in national politics and implement people’s agenda.
The NRI units of TRS from 24 countries held a meeting at Telangana Bhavan on Monday and decided to expand to at least 50 countries in the next one year.
Interested Telangana NRIs from various countries can reach out to the NRI wing through email firstname.lastname@example.org with their complete details for opening new units.
Speaking to mediapersons, TRS NRI coordinator Mahesh Bigala said people were looking for an alternative to the Congress and the BJP which failed to develop the country on par with the so-called developed nations.
“The people’s agenda proposed by the Chief Minister would be a gamechanger in 2019 elections and we will strive to help him bring qualitative change in national politics,” he said. He stated that the TRS NRI units were working for Telangana State till date, but would focus now on national politics by creating awareness among all NRIs living abroad.
The NRI representatives thanked Chief Minister Chandrashekhar Rao for sanctioning Rs 50 crore for NRI Cell and urged that major share of this corpus fund be used for welfare of Telangana NRIs in Gulf countries.
They said that Telangana workers in the Gulf countries were living in pathetic conditions and in majority cases, their families were unable to bear expenses for transportation of bodies in case of the death of workers. They also thanked Minister for NRI Affairs KT Rama Rao and Nizamabad MP K Kavitha for their support.
MLC Madireddy Srinivas Reddy, TRS Britain NRI Unit president Anil Kurmachalam, US NRI Unit media advisor Mahesh Thanneeru, Norway Unit representative Srinivas, Britain Unit vice-president Navin Reddy, New Zealand Unit president Vijay Bhaskar Kosna and Italy Unit representative Phaniram attended the meeting.
