HYDERABAD: With Assembly session ending in a fiasco and a united opposition all set to launch an offensive, the ruling TRS is planning to reach out to the public to explain the government stand. 

The adjournment of the Assembly session and the suspension of opposition party MLAs has not gone well with the ruling party as the whole episode has gifted an opportunity for the opposition to discredit the government.

This was the view reportedly aired by none other than chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao at the TRS legislature party meet held here on Thursday. “We could not put across our point on the floor of the Assembly,” KCR told his MLAs and MLCs during the meet.

Sources within the party said KCR felt that the party failed to utilise the Assembly as a platform to highlight the government’s achievements. “We should have used the session to project the government initiatives in key sectors like power, irrigation and others to the hilt. But, that did not happen,” the sources said.


A day after the session was adjourned sine die, the TRS chief discussed in length about the need to strengthen the party and to draw a strategy to counter the opposition.

Irked by the decision of the opposition to take to the streets, KCR asked his MLAs and MLCs to give a befitting reply to the opposition. “They are making a hue and cry (over crop loan). Give them a befitting reply,” he said. Unmindful of the criticism, KCR asked his party leaders to reach out to the people and popularise the government schemes and initiatives.

“Don’t back away. Take on the opposition and this should be done right from ground level,” he said.

The chief minister also had a word of caution for the rank and file. He asked them not to resort to ‘group politics’ and warned of zero tolerance towards such activities. These remarks come in the wake of an ongoing cold war among some leaders in the party.
