Busy with programmes, CM attended secretariat only once


KCR seems to be very busy with several government-sponsored programmes that required him to tour extensively in districts and a slew of other official functions lines up, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao’s has made a very few visits, perhaps a single digit count, to the State administrative headquarters in the last one month.

His last big day in the Secretariat was the previous Cabinet meet on June 10. The Chief Minister who used to spend around seven to 10 hours each day in the Secretariat during the initial days and hold series of review meetings with various departments has been conspicuous of his absence for the past one month.

On June 20 and 21, he held two-day marathon meetings with ten district collectors on Haritha Haaram and other flagship schemes at Marri Channa Reddy Institute in Jubilee Hills. After President Pranab Mukherjee’s arrival in the city on June 29, Rao attended the book release function of Maharashtra Governor Ch Vidyasagar Rao on July 3 and accompanied him to Yadagirigutta on July 5 besides taking part in the ‘At Home’ programme hosted by Pranab Mukherjee.

In between, he toured most of the districts in north Telangana as well as Ranga Reddy district as part of the ongoing Haritha Haaram programme. With two Telugu speaking States involving in a slugfest for the last one month over cash-for-vote scam and Section-8 issue, Rao held several rounds of meetings with top police officials at his camp office.

As Chief Minister was not seen at the Secretariat, some of his Cabinet colleagues are too making ‘guest appearances’ in the State administrative headquarters. They come just before review meetings and leave immediately afterwards, according to sources.
