Hyderabad: The political journey of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) for the past 21 years seems to nearing its logical end. Launched in 2001 to separate State of Telangana, the TRS took many changes and later emerged as the ruling party after 2104 Assembly polls and since then the TRS is power for the next term where it once again regained the trust of the people for the second time. Now the party now expected to make its presence felt in national politics in the coming weeks and months.
