Rama Rao also elicited the views of the state executive member. “The present tempo — resounding victory in Assembly polls — should be continued for next six months time, so that the party would register thumping victories in Lok Sabha and Panchayat elections, Reddy explained. The TRS rank and file would actively involve in the enrolment of names in electoral rolls. “Either party president K Chandrasekhar Rao or working president KT Rama Rao will meet the CEO and raise the issue of deletion of large number of voters from the electoral rolls,” Rajeshwar Reddy said.
