On Friday, from opposition parties three more MLAs, including Soyam Venkateswarulu from Khammam, would be joining the TRS soon and also 20 corporators from the city would be joining the party said Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao.
In a party meeting KCR said “You don’t have to be worried about new faces joining. You will get your due. Moreover, after delimitation, the number of Assembly segments will increase from the present 119”.
Setting an enthusiastic target of 37.70 lakh party memberships in the state, the CM declared to launch the membership drive in February first week. Mr Rao, whose two-year term as party president will also be completed on April 27, will be re-elected for another term, it is learnt.
“You have done an excellent job in the Secunderabad Cantonment Board. We began from the scratch and won the polls. We can win the GHMC elections too and the mayor’s post,” Mr Rao said in a closed-door marathon meeting with the Cabinet ministers and other party leaders.
The meeting was focused on the membership drive and how to strength the party from the grassroots level, taking the developmental schemes to the doorsteps of people and maintaining the growth of the party said TRS secretary general K. Kesava Rao and education minister A. Jagdish Reddy.
