Hyderabad: Enthused by the massive turnout for the Khammam rally on Wednesday and the presence of Chief Ministers of three states besides other national leaders, the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) leadership is mulling holding seven more such mega rallies in seven states in the next five to six months.
The party leadership reportedly shortlisted Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi to hold mega rallies. BRS leaders will also take part in rallies to be held by like-minded parties in other states.
A day after BRS's first public meeting in Khammam, the party president and Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao held a meeting with the party’s senior leaders at Pragathi Bhavan on Thursday.

The Chief Minister reportedly heaped praises on ministers T. Harish Rao, Puvvada Ajay Kumar, MLCs Palla Rajeshwar Reddy and Padi Kaushik Reddy.
Party sources said that the Chief Minister is in favour of holding a huge rally in Visakhapatnam in February. He reportedly asked BRS AP unit chief
Thota Chandrashekar to plan for the same. The schedule for rallies in other states will be finalised soon, they added.
