TRS feels the anti-incumbency against its deputies and ministers


Hyderabad: Ahead of the October 25 plenary, the ruling TRS is drawing up a plan to beat the anti-incumbents. The party emphasizes the performance of ministers and MPs and would organize training sessions for them soon after the plenary to improve their performance.

Ministers and MPs were urged to play a proactive role in the effective delivery of social welfare programs, public services and development programs in their constituencies and districts. They should not neglect the demands submitted to them by the people on various issues and pursue all such issues with the government and officials to resolve them at the earliest.
