Do you know that one grain of rice can be a decider in the upcoming Telangana. Can't believe? Then you need to visit the Government hostels in Telangana states to understand this. For the past four-and-a-half-years, the students of the government hostels and residential schools are getting fine rice to eat. This is a major departure from the earlier regime, where coarse, worm-ridden, maggot-filled rice was being served at the hostels across the state. Now the situation is different now. Between 10-15 lakh students staying in over 3000 hostels are getting fine rice. This helped in providing nourishing food to them and in improving their health.
Assuming that there are three votes in each of these 15 lakh families, there would be nearly 45 lakh voters. These are all influenced by the fine rice supplied to the TRS. The TRS leaders feel that these voters will go with the TRS and this would add up at least 15 to 20 lakh votes to the TRS. This can affect the outcome in many constituencies in Telangana. This is going to be key to the success of the TRS.
