Hyderabad: Telangana Jana Samithi (TJS) sounded poll bugle to keep pace and compete with major political parties in the State. TJS chief Prof Kodandaram stated that his party would be coming out with " Pragathiki Padi Sutralu; Kottha Rajakeeyalu-Kottha Arthika Pathakalu" (in English read as Ten steps for development: New Politics-New Financial Schemes) document outlining its ten strategies, vision, plans for development of the State. He would also undertake bus yatra from September 20 in two phases, covering North Telangana and South Telangana.
Addressing a press conference here on Monday, Kodandaram said the objective is to reach out to every person in the village and create awareness on party priorities, plans and initiatives for Telangana. He said they are in the process of finalising committees for 50 constituencies in few weeks initially and the rest later.
He said that politicians from other parties were in touch with TJS and the party was weighing all options before joining anyone. Commenting on TRS's much talked about " Pragathi Nivedana Sabha" held on Sunday, Kodandaram said that it was a failure and it marked the beginning of K Chandrashekar Rao's end as Chief Minister. It was not "Pragathi Nivedana" but " Padhavi Viramana" meeting, the TJS chief said.
" KCR was not his usual self and his speech was "lacklustre" with no clarity and short of words because he was known for his oratory skills. This happened because of his disconnection from people for the last four and half years. That is what will happen if a leader stays away from common man," he said.
There was no mention of Pragathi (development) or his future vision in the speech, TJS chief lamented. The ruling party tried to portray the meeting as a show of strength, but the plan failed despite utilising all official machinery and government departments.
TJS leader K Dileep Kumar said that he had doubts on K Chandrashekar Rao's statement that he confronted Prime Minister Narendra Modi on clearing file pertaining to new zones. " He might have pleaded Modi to clear the file or he (referring to KCR) would be finished. But in meeting he put it differently," said Dileep.
