Youth gives up lucrative IT job to join BRS party in Maharashtra

One Sharad Markad of Nivdunde village in Ahmednagar district in Maharashtra gave up his high paying IT job and joined the BRS party in the presence of its founder K Chandrasekhar Rao. He got a software job with a package of Rs 4.8 lakh per annum but he decided to give it up. He said hailing from an agricultural family, he knew the plight of farmers.

Markad said he was attracted by the farmer-friendly schemes launched by BRS party in Telangana state and decided to work with the party in Maharashtra to offer the same to farmers in his state. He said he liked the works of KCR and hence despite his poor family situation, joined the BRS party.

Markad came up the hard way working in shops. He was taken aback by the drought situation where even the cattle were deprived of drinking water and fodder. He set up a fodder centre and strove to eradicate the lumpy disease of cattle. Farmers supported him enormously. He came to know of the farmer-friendly policies of the Telangana government and evinced interest in working with the party for the good of farmers of Maharashtra.

Scores of leaders of NCP and BJP in Maharashtra are making a beeline and joining the BRS party. Going by the growing patronage of BRS party in the state, the political scenario in Maharashtra will witness a revolutionary change in the days to come. On Monday, several leaders joined the party in Hyderabad. BRS founder and Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao welcomed them into the party presenting them with pink scarfs.
