HYDERABAD: Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao will resume his district tour from January 12, inaugurating new integrated district collectorate complexes, among other projects.
KCR’s visits to the district are expected to raise the political temperature as the state will go to the assembly elections later this year. Also, with the targets given by the CM to agencies and officials to complete iconic projects like the Collectorate building, secretariat complex, 125-feet Ambedkar statue, new Telangana martyrs, talk of early election of the BRS chief is gaining ground. Eligible beneficiaries of memorials, land holders are also being given financial assistance of Rs 3 lakh for construction of their own houses in other schemes and projects.
KCR will inaugurate the new collectorate office of Mahabubabad district on January 12. On the same day, he will inaugurate the new collectorate complex of Bhadradri-Kothagudem district. After Sankranti, the Chief Minister will inaugurate the new integrated collectorate office of Khammam district on January 18. The inauguration of both the Bhadradri-Kothagudem and Khammam district collectorate complexes assumes significance as the BRS is struggling to strengthen the party in these two districts, strongholds of Congress, TDP and Left parties.
Of the two districts with 10 assembly constituencies, the BRS won only the Khammam seat in the 2018 assembly elections, which is now represented by Transport Minister P Ajay Kumar. Later, except Bhatti Vikramarka (Madhira) and Podem Veeraiah (Bhadrachalam) of Congress, all other MLAs of Congress, TDP joined BRS.
