The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) is holding a two-day brainstorming meet from Wednesday in Karimnagar to chalk out its future course of action to achieve its goal of a separate Telangana state.


With the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) dropping no hints of an early solution, the meeting is expected to take crucial decisions to intensify the Telangana movement and strengthen the party at the grassroots.

The two-day session, starting Wednesday afternoon, will be chaired by party president K. Chandrasekhara Rao. Party MPs, state legislators, politburo members and other top leaders will attend the meet.

KCR, as Rao is popularly known, is likely to brief party leaders on the talks he had with Congress leaders in Delhi. The MP had had camped in the national capital for nearly a month meeting several top leaders of Congress party.

KCR's son and TRS state legislator K. Tarakarama Rao said the meeting would evolve a strategy to take forward the Telangana movement.

The meeting assumed significance in the wake of TRS chief's recent warning of a war over Telangana.

The party in recent months has also come under criticism from other pro-Telangana groups for not actively participating in the agitation.

Karimnagar, about 160 km from here, has been painted 'pink' for the TRS meet, which will be attended by about 1,000 delegates from all 10 districts of the region. The party cadre has decked up the entire town with banners, flags, posters and festoons.
