A day after KCR took his oath as CM of Telangana, his son KTR has been made the TRS working president (Executive President). This announcement came as KCR is now expected to focus more on national politics. This elevation is being seen as the first step by KCR to anoint his son as CM at a later stage while he takes a bigger role in national politics.
With a landslide victory, there is no opposition in the party to KCR’s decision to elevate his son. On Tuesday, KCR has said that he would be soon forming a non-Congress, non-BJP national party with a consortium of regional parties. KCR said he has decided to concentrate more time on national politics to bring a qualitative change in the political activity at a countrywide level.
KCR took this decision of appointing KTR as working president, with a view to entrust the responsibility of party affairs to the most trusted and efficient person, since he would be preoccupied with the governance activities like expediting construction of irrigation projects and also to implement the electoral promises in letter and spirit, a statement said.
