Having crossed the first hurdle of nominations for Assembly and Lok Sabha seats in Telangana region, all major political parties are getting ready for taking a headlong plunge in campaigning.

Apart from making use of the cyberspace in reaching out to the readers, they are also trying to make use of the 3D technology a la BJP leader Narendra Modi to create an impact.

Though none of them have yet started campaign using 3D technology, efforts are on to become the first in the South to have interactive meetings with voters at several places in Telangana at a time.

TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu is hoping to reach people at 20 places in the region at a time by addressing them from a studio which is almost ready at his residence. He will speak in the studio every day the signals would be received in the predesignated places. The voters would have a feeling that Chandrababu Naidu is standing in front of them in flesh and blood.

Even KCR is also planning to have similar meetings and TRS workers are in touch with those who have provided the technology to Narendra Modi in Gujarat. They are also racing against time so that their leader KCR would be able to use the time available for polling usefully in reaching out to the people.

This apart, Congress national leaders -Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi - are going to storm Telangana region to seek votes for delivering Telangana state. Sonia Gandhi is expected to address a major rally in Karimnagar on April 16 and Rahul Gandhi the next day at Warangal. The two leaders will visit Telangana once again later when they would address rallies in Mahbubnagar and Medak.

Though Telangana Congress leaders had not been able to take initiative and get cracking, it was Union minister Jairam Ramesh who has taken the responsibility of campaigning by explaining to the voters how Sonia Gandhi had delivered Telangana despite opposition. He has been reeling off promises in his campaign which he kicked off on Thursday in Adilabad. He addressed similar rallies in Nalgonda and Palair in Khammam district.

K Chandrasekhara Rao apart from reaching the voters with 3 D technology also wants to take up a whirlwind tour of Telangana. He has already hired a helicopter for this purpose and used it for reaching Medak and Gajwel on Wednesday, the last day for filing nomination papers.

According to TRS sources, KCR is likely to begin his campaign from April 13 but would address election rally in Karimnagar after Sonia Gandhi’s visit. As KCR is keen that the credit of achieving Telangana state should go to TRS, he is planning to make the Karimnagar meeting a show of strength. KCR wants to make his public meeting such a massive one that Sonia Gandhi’s public meeting’s impact should pale into significance.

While this is so Chandrababu Naidu also wants to leverage on 3 D technology to reach his message to the people. Chandrababu Naidu would begin his campaign from Malkajgiri from Saturday. Naidu who has partnered with BJP is keen on winning as many seats as possible in Telangana where his party is considered an underdog. As Naidu begins campaigning in Telangana, his son Lokesh is set to take to streets in Seemandhra from tomorrow.

Lokesh will visit Nimmakuru, the native place of NTR senior and will pay his respect to his late grandfather. From Sunday, he will tour coastal districts.
