Tue 16 Jul 2019, 11:52:14
The membership drive of TRS surpassed its target of 50,000 members per Assembly constituency in several districts. The party leaders are confident of registering more than 70 lakh members, considering the overwhelming response from people in the State and abroad.

Chief Minister and TRS president K Chandrashekhar Rao launched the membership drive on June 27 at Telangana Bhavan, and was the first to renew his party membership. The TRS leadership targeted an increase in its membership from the existing 45 lakh to 60 lakh and appointed party in-charges for every two constituencies. MPs, MLAs, MLCs and other elected representatives were also given responsibilities.

About 60 lakh membership booklets were distributed to the party leaders. The TRS NRI unit was also conducting the membership registration across its units in 40 countries. “There has been an overwhelming response from people. Though we are yet to consolidate the numbers as the drive is still on, preliminary reports indicate that at least half of the 119 Assembly constituencies recorded more than 50,000 members per constituency. With five days left, we expect the membership to cross at least 70 lakh,” a TRS general secretary said.

Simultaneously, the data pertaining to the drive was being digitised at village, mandal, district and city levels. MLC Naveen Rao was entrusted with the responsibility of the digitisation process. The party was also pursuing the insurance coverage to all its members and after completion of the registration process, details pertaining to the insurance coverage will be handed over to the insurance company. Chandrashekhar Rao and TRS working president KT Rama Rao were supervising the drive and speaking to the party leaders at regular intervals.
