Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) chief K Chandrasekhara Rao staked his claim for the CM’s post Friday, declaring that it was his responsibility to develop Telangana into a dynamic state. Speaking in Ranga Reddy, Rao declared his personal manifesto: “It is my responsibility now to deliver what the people of Telangana want.
I promised that I will not give up my fight for Telangana till my last breath and I did not give up till we achieved Telangana state. Our policies won’t be meant to please the rich. Till now the AP government harped on providing housing to the poor by constructing one-room houses for them. In Telangana, it is my responsibility to provide a house with two bedrooms, a hall and kitchen to all deserving beneficiaries. I am raising the Rs 1,000 grant to physically-challenged people to Rs 1,500.”
Rao’s speech on Friday hinted that he and the TRS were in no mood to merge with the Congress soon.

Rao’s speech appeared to be a reaction to imposition of President’s rule and Union minister Jairam Ramesh’s announcement about establishing seven Kendriya Vidyalayas in seven Telangana districts.
Rao also promised to open Primary Health Centres in all villages and mandals and establish hospitals in every district HQ. “Corporate hospitals which charge exorbitantly have been fleecing the poor. That won’t be the case in Telangana,’’ he said.
“We will start English medium schools so that our students do not lag behind. The AP government runs schools and hostels based on caste… In Telangana, we won’t have those caste-based institutions,’’ Rao said.
TRS puts off crucial meet on poll strategy
Hyderabad: Amidst suspense on merger or alliance with the Congress, the TRS postponed its crucial politburo joint meeting scheduled Saturday, to discuss its poll strategy. The decision to defer the meeting to March 3 was taken, since “tomorrow is ‘Amavasya’,” sources said. PTI
