Telangana Rashtra Samithi president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao got an unprecedented reception at his native village in Chintamadaka of Siddipet district on Monday.
Though KCR had spent a lot of time in his childhood in Chintamadaka, he hardly visited the place after he became the chief minister, except on the polling day.
However, the village has been witnessing major development though KCR had never paid any visit all these years.
The entire credit for the same will go to KCR’s nephew and Siddipet MLA T Harish Rao, since Chintamadaka falls under his own constituency.
Though KCR has been neglecting Harish Rao for quite some, the latter did not neglect KCR’s native village. He widened roads, constructed double-bedroom houses, school buildings and panchayat building.
Now, KCR suddenly remembered the village and sanctioned Rs 200 crore to it for various developmental works. Apparently, he realised that the villagers are more inclined towards Harish Rao, rather than KCR.
In the coming days, if at all Harish Rao stages a revolt against him in the party, KCR wants to ensure that his own village does not turn against him.
In all probability, KCR might even take Harish Rao back into the cabinet soon to pre-empt any such revolt!
