Hyderabad: BRS President and Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao embarked on a two-day visit to Solapur with the aim of expanding the party’s influence in Maharashtra. The Chief Minister was joined by a distinguished entourage comprising Ministers, MPs, MLAs, MLCs, elected representatives, and BRS leaders from both Telangana and Maharashtra. The convoy that accompanied him boasted an impressive fleet of nearly 600 vehicles.
Throughout the journey, enthusiastic BRS cadres organized grand receptions for the Chief Minister’s convoy at various locations, resounding with slogans such as ‘Jai KCR, Jai BRS’ and ‘Ab ki Baar Kisan Sarkar.’ The streets were adorned with flexi banners lauding the BRS, the Chief Minister, and the Telangana model of development. While Chandrashekhar Rao traveled in his official bus alongside Ministers, MPs, and other leaders, the convoy stretched out in a majestic line of four-wheelers along the Hyderabad-Mumbai Highway, capturing the attention of onlookers and generating a buzz on social media.
During a brief stop at Omerga village in the Dharashiv district, the BRS President took the opportunity to interact with local leaders and farmers over a shared lunch. The women of the village extended a warm welcome by offering ‘Mangala Aarathi’ to the esteemed guest. Later in the evening, Chandrashekhar Rao arrived in Solapur, where he held meetings with prominent leaders from Maharashtra and engaged with handloom weavers from Telangana who had migrated to Solapur for better livelihood opportunities.
On the following day, the Chief Minister’s schedule included a visit to the revered Lord Vithoba temple in Pandharpur, where he performed a special pooja at Sri Vithal Rukmini Mandir. Additionally, he addressed a public meeting at Sarkoli, where he welcomed the induction of prominent leader Bhagirath Balke and other senior politicians from various parties into the BRS. Before returning to Hyderabad, he also paid homage at the renowned Shakti Peetham, Goddess Tulja Bhavani temple, situated in the Darashiv district.
Since the transformation of TRS into BRS in October of the previous year, the BRS Chief has made several visits to Maharashtra, tirelessly striving to win the hearts of the people.
