It was Mr K Chandrasekhar Rao who pledged to end discrimination of Telangana by Andhra rulers and delivered the long cherished dream.
It was the aspiration of people of Telangana to have a separate Telangana state. They had been striving for six decades to realise their dream.
It is Mr KCR who founded the TRS party and went all over the state telling how people could achieve their dream and mobilized them.
In 21 year long journey, he faced many difficulties and humiliations, conspiracies and what not.
He not only delivered the promise of separate Telangana, he also became its first chief minister and did wonders. The development and welfare witnessed enormous growth. The state witnessed growth in all sectors compared to other states.
It is time now for a celebration. The plenary being organized by the party on the eve of 21st foundation day will deliberate on various issues. It will review journey.
Several leaders recalled their association with Mr KCR and praised him for his leadership qualities.
Former speaker Mr Madhusudhana Chary said Mr KCR is a great leader who is very focused. None can match his determination and hard work.
He said he had been with Mr KCR since 1985. After founding TRS they worked closely.
Mr KCR deserves all credit and people should further strengthen his hands for development of Telangana, he said.
