Discontent brewing in TRS


Outsiders are more favored in the TRS government than the loyalists, who are born as politicians in Telangana movement and brought up in TRS. This is the grumble one hears among the TRS circles, who hoped that formation Telangana state would be ” Bangaru Telangana” from them.

Many TRS veterans are not able to decipher chief minister K Chadrasekhar Rao’s mind in promoting only defectors or retired officers instead of rewarding the party veterans, who braved police lathis, lock-ups and cases. The latest irritant for them is the appointment of D Srinivas as the special advisor to the government of Telangana.

D Srinivas, they said, till the other day enjoyed the office in Congress and worked in all possible means to defeat the TRS in Nizambad district. It has not been even two weeks since he joined the party, he is appointed as the advisor, a seventh one in the government with a cabinet rank. Majority of the advisors are retired IAS officers, who never worked for the party nor participated in the T-movement.

Second crop of leaders who got benefited were defectors such as Talasani Krishan Yadava, Tummla Nageswar Rao, Kadiyam Srihari, Mahender Reddy, Chandulal, Jupalli Krishna Rao, Pocharam Srinivas and A. Indrasena Reddy. Of the 18 ministers, eight are not original TRS leaders like Etela Rajender or Nayani Narasimha Reddy.

“If he(KCR) doesn’t ‘t want to give us plum posts in the government. Then at least he should fill the nominated posts in the public sector units. It is already 14 months into the term of the government, chief minister has not appointed chairmen to the Public sector corporations.
He has not appointed any party leader to government bodies, temple committees etc. Resentment is brewing inside the party,” said a party veteran , who has been waiting for a post in the government told T-360 on condition of anonymity.

In every district, an army of dissidents is becoming visible, he said. If the CM doesn’t take care of the loyalist and keep on promoting the defectors, people suspect KCRs motive and distance themselves from it, he added in disgust.
