‘Telangana Rashtra Samithi’ becomes ‘Bharat Rashtra Samithi’

Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao, who had been advocating for a ‘qualitative change’ in administration and occasionally meeting the leaders of other parties to discuss the same, has officially forayed into national politics. On Dec 9, the TRS chief officially changed his party’s name from ‘Telangana Rashtra Samithi’ to ‘Bharat Rashtra Samithi’ by signing the concerned documents.

The party received the green signal from the Election Commission on Thursday.

Actor Prakash Raj and Janata Dal (S) leader Kumaraswamy joined CM KCR as he hoisted the BRS flag. The flag featured the Indian map and the party’s name, ‘Bharat Rashtra Samithi,’ in Telugu and English.

Speaking on occasion, KCR hinted at picking up on farmers’ issues as his main talking point.

TRS party’s working president K. Taraka Rama Rao (KTR), is understood to be the working president of BRS.
