Hyderabad: Finance minister Etela Rajender on Thursday released “That is KCR,” a biography on Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao which touches not only the Telangana movement but also developmental programmes taken up TRS government.
The book, written by Trinetra, comes on the eve of Mr Rao’s birthday on Friday, which TRS leaders and supporters plan to celebrate with gusto across the state.
“KCR instilled confidence in people, achieved Telangana, proved administrative skills and is leading the state to the path of development,” Mr Rajender at the book release function.
