BRS gains huge support from AP, prominent leaders join BRS party 

Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) party has amassed huge support from its neighbouring state Andhra Pradesh (AP). Ravela Kishore Babu, a former minister, two senior bureaucrat-turned-politicians namely Thota Chandrashekar and Chintala Parthasarathi and several others have joined the BRS in the presence of CM KCR. 

In all likelihood, Thota Chandrashekar, a retired IAS, will be appointed as the AP unit president of the BRS. Chandrashekar earlier worked as general secretary of the Janasena Party and he was also a member of the YSRCP before joining Janasena. 

The former bureaucrat has a rich experience in public service having worked as a municipal commissioner in Thane and Nagpur in Maharashtra. During his tenure, he transformed the cities of Thane and Nagpur and won several awards. Chandrashekar is also popular among the people of Maharashtra for his dedicated service in changing the face of urban Maharashtra.

While Ravela Kishore Babu has worked as social welfare and tribal welfare minister in the cabinet of Chandrababu Naidu, Parthasarathi was an IRS officer before joining the TDP. A senior politician from the scheduled caste community, Kishore Babu brings his vast political experience to the table. 

In no time, proving the detractors wrong, BRS has gained support from AP. Attracted by CM KCR’s model of governance, many student organisations and Joint Action Committees are openly declaring their allegiance to the BRS. 

The party chief is already holding consultations with leaders from Maharashtra and Karnataka. Now, winning support from another Telugu-speaking state is a welcome sign for the party which is aspiring to gain a foothold across the nation.
