BRS president and Chief Minister K.Chandrashekar Rao will address 100 public meetings in October and November for the upcoming Assembly polls, sources said.
The party’s election strategy committee is finalising the schedule for Chandrashekar Rao’s public meetings, with an expectation that the Election Commission of India will issue the poll notification in the first week of October and hold the polls in the first week of December.
BRS working president K.T.Rama Rao will take charge of the campaign in the northern districts, while Minister T.Harish Rao will be incharge of the southern districts.Besides, Rama Rao will also be tasked with campaigning in the GHMC and HMDA limits.
Sources said that Harish Rao will focus on the erstwhile undivided Medak, Nalgonda, and Mahbubnagar districts, in addition to the undivided Khammam district.
MLC Kalvakuntla Kavitha will be given the responsibility of the undivided Nizamabad district, with a special focus on the Kamareddy constituency, from where the party chief will be contesting, apart from the Gajwel constituency, which he represents, party sources said.
It has been over a month, following a rally at Suryapet on August 20, since Chandrashekar Rao addressed a public meeting.Although he did address a meeting on September 16 at Kollapur, it was to mark the inauguration of the Palamuru Rangareddy Lift Irrigation Scheme’s first stage at the Narlapur reservoir.
The BRS manifesto committee is also engaged in preparing the document, with a special package for the poor and women, for the October 16 release in Warangal.
Rama Rao has hinted at announcing special packages for the poor and women in the manifesto while addressing a public meeting in Hyderabad after the distribution of 2BHK houses to the poor last Thursday.
In his address, Rama Rao urged the public not to believe the ‘six guarantees’ of the Congress, assuring that BRS will give special packages and that Chandrashekar Rao will announce them soon.
Sources said that the Chief Minister will hold a public meeting in Warangal on October 16 to release the manifesto.
