Delay in the introduction of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Bill in Parliament had forced TRS president K. Chandrasekhar Rao and the party activists to make it a low-key affair, TRS sources said.

Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) president K. Chandrasekhar Rao’s 60th birthday, celebrated by party activists, was a low-key affair on Monday.

As advised by the party leadership a couple of days ago, the celebration was toned-down as the time was not ripe for a grand celebration since Telangana formation remained incomplete.

The Centre’s fast-track decisions on the Statehood issue in the recent months had indeed made Mr. Chandrasekhar, who turned 60 on Monday, plan for a gala birthday this time.

But delay in the introduction of the Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Bill in Parliament had forced him and the party activists to make it a low-key affair, TRS sources said.

Cutting cakes, distributing sweets, bursting of crackers and organising blood donation camps marked his birthday celebrations in districts across Telangana and in Hyderabad.

His daughter K. Kavitha, TRS women’s wing president T. Uma and youth wing president B. Rammohan were among others who participated in the celebrations in TRS Bhavan.
