Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao is set to embark on a nationwide tour, commencing Friday, with the goal of playing a pivotal role in national politics by presenting an alternative agenda. During his tour, KCR will engage with influential figures in politics, the economy, and media.
Popularly known as KCR, the TRS chief will kick off his journey in Delhi, where he plans to meet leaders from various political parties, engage with leading economists to discuss the country’s economic situation, and interact with journalists from national media houses. Following his Delhi visit, KCR will travel to Chandigarh on May 22 to console the families of 600 farmers who lost their lives during the protest against the three farm laws. Alongside Delhi and Punjab counterparts Arvind Kejriwal and Bhagwant Mann, KCR will present Rs 3 lakh each to the families of the deceased farmers.
On May 26, the Telangana Chief Minister is scheduled to visit Bengaluru, where he will meet with former Prime Minister Deve Gowda and former Karnataka Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy. The following day, he will travel to Ralegan Siddhi to meet social activist Anna Hazare, proceed to Shirdi for Saibaba’s darshan, and then return to Hyderabad.
Later, around May 29 or 30, KCR plans to visit West Bengal and Bihar to console the families of Indian Army personnel martyred in clashes with Chinese PLA troops in Ladakh’s Galwan Valley, presenting cheques to the families. This follows his March visit to Ranchi, where he, along with Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren, presented cheques of Rs 10 lakh each to the families of two soldiers. KCR had pledged in 2020 to provide Rs 10 lakh each to the families of 19 soldiers from various states and had allocated Rs 5 crore for the family of Colonel B. Santosh Babu, killed in the Galwan Valley clash.
