TRS's 'Pragati Nivedana Sabha' (meeting to report progress) is being held at the Kongara Kalan village in Ranga Reddy district on the outskirts of the city. During the meeting, the CM will address the people on the progress that the state has made in various sectors in the last four years.
Nearly 25 lakh people are expected to take part in the public meeting. Roads leading up to the venue have been decked up with TRS flags. Sound systems, floodlights and LED screens have also been arranged, along with 30 ambulances.
However, the government is facing flak from opposition parties who have accused the TRS of wasting public money.
While the Legislative Assembly elections in Telangana are scheduled to be held simultaneously with the Lok Sabha polls next year, there are chances of the CM calling for an early poll on presumption that there is a positive mood among people on the government.
