Defeat is a temporary setback: BRS working president KTR

The BRS party with its 39 MLAs would work for the people and their demands. It would play a constructive role as a responsible Opposition party, said BRS working president Mr KT Rama Rao.

During his visit to his native assembly constituency Sircilla, Mr Rama Rao paid tributes to B R Ambedkar and spoke to the media at the Telangana Bhavan, the party office on Wednesday.

Terming the defeat as a small speed breaker, he said the party would bounce back with renewed vigour and strength sooner or later. People have given 39 MLAs to the party who would raise their voices on behalf of the people in the Assembly.

The Congress party promised Rs. 2 lakh loan waiver, housing, and jobs among others. The BRS would monitor their implementation and question the government on the promises from time to time.

The party would also introspect its past course of action and would come out with corrective measures. It would stand by the people and fight for their just causes.

“During its prolonged struggle for separate Telangana and later being in government, the BRS has seen many ups and downs. Definitely it is disappointing to lose the election but there is nothing to worry,” Mr Rama Rao said.
