K. Chandrasekhar Rao Unanimously Elected BRS Legislature Party Leader Despite Absence

In a significant development for the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), K. Chandrasekhar Rao, former chief minister of Telangana and BRS president, was unanimously elected as the leader of the BRS Legislature Party. The decision was made during a meeting of newly-elected MLAs just ahead of the Assembly’s first session.

Despite undergoing hip replacement surgery due to a recent fall, KCR’s leadership was endorsed by 39 MLAs of the party, solidifying BRS’s role as the main opposition with 39 seats in the 119-member Assembly. Notably, KCR was absent from the meeting as he continued his recovery, and his son, K. T. Rama Rao, along with two other MLAs, were also unable to attend.

The resolution to elect KCR was presided over by BRS Parliamentary Party leader Kesav Rao, emphasizing the party’s solidarity under KCR’s leadership. Despite the recent electoral setback, KTR expressed confidence on Twitter that BRS would persist as the powerful voice of the people in the Telangana Legislature under KCR’s guidance.
