With each passing day, the count of TRS leaders, who want KT Rama Rao as the future Chief Minister of Telangana, is increasing gradually.
Earlier, it was Minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav, Minister E Rajender, Legislative Council Chairman Gutha Sukhender Reddy, MLA Bajireddy Govardhan Reddy, MLA DS Redya Naik and MLA Shakeel Aamir Mohammed, who expressed their wish to see KTR as Chief Minister.
In a significant development, Telangana Assembly Deputy Speaker T Padma Rao Goud termed KTR as the future Chief Minister of Telangana and said the latter would take up the responsibilities very shortly.
He made these statements in the presence of KT Rama Rao at a meeting of railway employees in Hyderabad on Thursday. While concluding his speech, Padma Rao Goud said that very shortly KTR would become Chief Minister. "I am congratulating the future CM," Goud said. He also urged the IT and Municipal Administration Minister not to ignore the problems of railway employees once he took up the top post. However, KTR did not react to the comments made by the Deputy Speaker.
