Hyderabad: TRS working president and IT & Industries Minister KT Rama Rao on Monday appealed to the people to vote for the development agenda of the TRS in the ensuing municipal elections. He cautioned people against false propaganda and promises made by the opposition which indulged in personal attacks on the TRS leadership rather than presenting their plan of action in the civic polls.
Rama Rao, who is in Davos to participate in the annual meeting of World Economic Forum (WEF), said with the blessings of people, the TRS would win majority seats in the 129 civic bodies after January 22 polling. He stated that there was a huge response from people to the campaign by the TRS which focussed on development agenda as against the false propaganda and personal abuses by the opposition parties for political mileage.
The TRS working president urged people and also the party cadre to stay alert as the opposition parties will make attempts in the next 36 hours to influence voters. He said the TRS was way ahead of its opponents in the electoral race as people were supporting its development agenda.
Despite his busy schedule at Davos, Rama Rao continued to monitor the electoral preparations of the party. He reviewed the party’s preparedness with the leaders over teleconference on Monday.
With less than 36 hours left for the polling, Rama Rao on Monday directed the district in-charges for municipal elections and TRS general secretaries to coordinate with MLAs and TRS Assembly constituency in-charges and identify booth agents. He wanted them to ensure that the list of booth agents is submitted to the authorities concerned as per schedule.
With the election of municipal chairpersons scheduled on January 27, Rama Rao instructed TRS general secretary and MLC Palla Rajeshwar Reddy to supply the whip forms to MLAs and the party in-charges in all Assembly constituencies well in advance. Accordingly, a whip will be issued to all TRS ward members to follow the party’s line in the election of municipal chairpersons. He also directed Rajeshwar Reddy to monitor any other potential issues during the last 36 hours before the polling.
