TRS working president and Municipal Administration Minister KT Rama Rao on Sunday said the Prime Minister’s Office should not have stopped Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao from receiving Prime Minister Narendra Modi when he visited Bharat Biotech on a stock-taking mission of Covaxin being developed by the city-based pharma major.

“There are no individuals in this case. Both are representatives of a system that has been followed from decades. These traditions are good for the nation. We in Telangana receive the President whenever he or she comes here on a southern sojourn. 

The Chief Minister and the entire cabinet go to the airport to welcome him or her. We strictly follow the protocol and it is better we continue with these courtesies,” the Minister said, adding that the Chief Minister was, in fact, ready to receive the Prime Minister.

Commenting on the chances of winning GHMC elections, he said that TRS has been able to put up a very effective campaign. “We have presented our work in the last six years after the TRS assumed office in the State and what we will do if voted again. We did not deviate, we didn’t walk into unnecessary arguments, while our opposition, unfortunately, did not have any kind of work to show that they have done for Hyderabad,” he said. 

He added that the TRS is going to win Langar Houz, Red Hills and Vijaynagar Colony against MIM along with the five seats that the TRS already has in the old city.

He further said the TRS will get close to 100 seats, plus or minus, and will have a woman corporator from the party as Mayor and we also have a deputy Mayor from TRS. “I think our effective presentation, especially our Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao’s appeal asking voters to bless the developmental model of the TRS will strike a chord with the voters,” he said.

Answering a question on the impact of Dubbak byelections on the GHMC outcome, he said there were 10 or 12 elections since the formation of Telangana and the TRS has won practically every single election. “Barring Dubbak, and the Parliament election where we didn’t achieve the numbers we wanted, we won convincingly with a thumping majority. Remember wherever we won we won with a huge majority. In Huzurnagar, the sitting seat of TPCC chief, we won by 46,000 votes. But when we lost we lost by 500 votes,” Rama Rao said.
