Khammam/Kothagudem: The opposition parties panicked after Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao announced the party’s manifesto partially, party leaders said.
R&B Minister Thummala Nageswara Rao who campaigned at Beerolu in Tirumalayapalem mandal in the district asked the voters to defeat opposition parties’ candidates in ensuing Assembly elections.
He said the manifesto by the TRS has been welcomed by people from different sections of society. As the manifesto spelled out many pro-people measures the opposition parties were in a state of panic, he added.
It was improper for the Congress party to accuse TRS of copying its manifesto as the Congress was yet to announce its manifesto officially. Congress leaders should stop making false allegations against TRS, he suggested.
As many as 40 families of Pusala community joined TRS in the presence of Nageswara Rao at Beerolu. People from different sections have been joining TRS and it indicated the faith the party had earned in the State, he added.
Earlier in the day, Nageswara Rao interacted with the party leaders at Gandugulapalli in Dammapeta mandal of Bhadradri Kothagudem district. He wanted the leaders to reach out to the voters explaining the achievements of the TRS rule.
At Kandukur, Sathupalli TRS nominee Pidamarthi Ravi inaugurated the party election office and addressed a gathering. He said unlike other political parties the TRS kept its election promises. The party manifesto indicated the CM’s concern towards farmers, he added.
The opposition parties which lacked a clear vision on public welfare were now worried over their prospects after the release of TRS election manifesto. The people in Telangana were with TRS party, he claimed.
At Mondikatta in Paloncha mandal of Kothagudem district, party nominee Jalagam Venkata Rao conducted door-to-door campaign. About 100 families from different political parties joined the TRS in his presence.
