KCR all set to take on Opposition


Hyderabad: After illness and rest, Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao is set to bare his fangs at Opposition parties, with Rao holding a long meeting on Thursday with BRS working president K.T. Rama Rao and senior leader T. Harish Rao on the manifesto and campaign. BRS sources said that the manifesto that Rao will release on October 15 at the Telangana Bhavan would prove to be a "gamechanger" for the party, which is facing incessant assaults from the Congress and BJP.It was learnt that during Thursday’s meeting at Pragathi Bhavan, Rao, Rama Rao and Harish were intermittently joined by senior leaders to discuss specific strategies to appease those denied tickets and tactics to rattle disgruntled Congress and BJP, which are yet to announce their candidates.Sources said that BRS was anticipating a lot of anger and resentment among the Opposition leaders who are denied tickets, and to capitalise on the same to strengthen itself in multiple constituencies.Also discussed in the meeting were plans for the trio to address public meetings. Rao reportedly discussed pointers to be given to party candidates at the October 15 meeting. "The discussions at today’s meetings and the decisions that will come out from it give an enormous push to the party’s campaign," a BRS source said.Party sources said the BRS leaders also discussed the appointment of incharges for all 119 Assembly constituencies to oversee campaigns. The party is also yet to announce its nominees for five — Jangaon, Nampally, Goshamahal, Narsapur, and Malkajgiri — Assembly segments.A clear plan of action and understanding was arrived at concerning the appointment of constituency incharges. All the 115 candidates whose nominations were announced on August 21 have more or less completed one round of campaigning in their constituencies, sources said."The BRS candidates have a great head-start on this front as the Congress and the BJP are still struggling to finalise their candidates," the party source said.
