Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) president K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Tuesday said the new Telangana State he was dreaming to reconstruct was not for ‘doralu’ (landlords) but was to bring smiles on the faces of backward and downtrodden sections.

Speaking after admitting Konda Surekha and Konda Muralidhar Rao couple from Warangal, former DGP rank officer S.K. Jayachandra, who retired as head, AP Special Police Battalions, at the end of 2011, and constituency-level leaders of Congress and TDP from Wanaparthy formally, he said no other party knows Telangana better than TRS as its rank and file had visited every nook and corner during the 14 years of movement for statehood and were aware of the problems.

“One day, I asked people to stone me to death if I fail to deliver Telangana and the TRS achieved it with a sustained movement. Now, I commit myself to make Telangana into a golden-land by addressing all the problems that have been neglected by the rulers in united Andhra Pradesh”, he said. Development of Telangana in all respects is possible only with TRS as the party would not be at the beck and call of Delhi, he said.

Separately, speaking after admitting several constituency-level leaders from Chevella and Vikarabad, TRS leader K.T. Rama Rao said they are not slaves of Delhi but would work as the servants of Telangana people. Congress was the culprit for clubbing Telangana with Andhra in 1956 and later mortgaging the interests of Telangana people in the united State, he alleged.
