'Bayyaram earthquake' will jolt the Chief Minister warns TRS chief Bayyaram protests should be carried out in such a way that Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy should realise the real meaning of an earthquake, Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief K Chandrasekhar Rao told the party functionaries on Wednesday. KCR predicted a repeat of Karnataka results in the State, where the anti-incumbency factor would ensure ouster of the ruling Congress government. He chaired the TRS State executive meeting that was held for over three hours at Telangana Bhavan. MLAs, MLCs, constituency in charges and State committee members took part in the meeting. TRS president touched upon various issues in his long address. He charged that the Chief Minister was repeatedly making light of the Telangana agitation. "It is time that the arrogant Chief Minister was taught a befitting lesson by the party," KCR told the party leaders. He urged the party functionaries from Khammam, Warangal and Karimnagar districts to put in their all energies in the Bayyaram fight. He directed the constituency in charges to ensure that not less than five thousand activists attend the training programmes to be conducted by the party from May 15 to June 2. Flaying Telugu Desam Party (TDP), the TRS chief observed that not even the entire country's budget would be sufficient to fulfil the promises made by its president N Chandrababu Naidu. Many leaders from the TDP were waiting to switch over to the TRS, he added. Later briefing the media, TRS floor leader Etela Rajender, in the Assembly, stated that the TRS would stage dharnas at collectorates on May 10 and rallies in mandal headquarters on May 14. The agitation would be intensified further, if the Chief Minister did not withdraw the decision on Bayyaram, he remarked. Meanwhile, senior leader Naini Narsimha Reddy stated that the TRS would actively take part in the 'Chalo Assembly' protest taken up by the TJAC. Vijayalakshmi Chauhan, former in charge of Khanpur constituency in Adilabad, descended at Telangana Bhavan accompanied by her supporters. Furious with her removal from the post, Vijayalakshmi wanted to speak to KCR directly and seek an explanation. However, the meeting could not materialise as KCR directly left for his residence, after the conclusion of the meeting.
