A joint meeting of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) politburo and other bodies will be held March 3 to chalk out the future course of action in the wake of the passage of the Telangana bill in parliament.

While the Congress expects Rao to fulfil his commitment that the TRS would merge with the Congress if a Telangana state was created, there is a difference of opinion among TRS leaders over the issue.

KCR, as Rao is popular among his supporters, criticised central minister Jairam Ramesh for making certain remarks. “A man who can’t get elected even as a sarpanch is making insulting comments about Telangana.”

The TRS leader said he had information that the central government was trying to merge seven mandals of Bhadrachalam division of Khammam district with Seemandhra. “This is unfortunate.”

The TRS chief promised to provide housing facility to all the poor in Telangana state. He said each house would be built on 125 square yards for every poor family.



  1. KCR is die-hard Congress to the core, so has been itching to merge with Congress. Looks like majority of common people who supported him and sacrificed for for Telanagana cause is averse to TRS-Congress merger. So KCR is in big dilemma. Come on KCR, make up your mind on whether to merge or not! How are you going to achieve Telanagana development with such in-decisiveness? Lack of vision and decision making does not help meet the aspirations of the masses to move the state forward. As a last resort, you can always merge with Congress in your personal capacity and TRS would be just fine. May be you are waiting for Congress to offer you CM carrot, hence the delay.
