With grand and gala arrangements, the 17th plenary session of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi is being organized on April 27 at GBR Cultural Centre at Kompally on the outskirts of Hyderabad. Besides all party leaders, more than 100 delegates from each assembly constituency are attending the session. The party chief and Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao will guide the leaders and the cadre on how to prepare for the coming general elections in 2019 and win the maximum number of the assembly and Lok Sabha seats. The Chief Minister many a time asserted that his party would win more than 100 seats out of 119 in the assembly. He said he was confident about it because he conducted poll surveys. The claim of the Chief Minister may be on the higher side, but political analysts opined that the ruling party would win the elections by the dint of its performance in fulfilling poll promises and taking up schemes and projects in farm and irrigation sectors.
The other important subject to be discussed for finalizing guidelines is the Federal Front proposed by the Chief Minister to get wider space for himself in national politics. He wants to play a vital role in the formation of the coming government at the centre. Though he met some regional leaders like the Chief Minister of West Bengal Mamata Banerjee and former Prime Minister Deve Gouda, the Janata Dal(S) chief but according to speculations doing rounds in national corridors, he could not get encouraging response. If it is true, what will be the future planning of the Chief Minister will be answered in the plenary session.
The Congress alleged that the KCR front would support the BJP to form the government at the centre after the Lok Sabha polls. However, this charge was stoutly rejected by Harish Rao, minister of the state. He may also elaborate as to what prompted him to plunge into national politics when the Bangaru Telangana motto is still to be achieved.
