Rao held a review meeting with the ministers, party MPs and senior officials at Pragathi Bhavan to discuss issues concerning Telangana state in the Union Budget and also the state’s agriculture sector.

Speculations had been doing the rounds for the past few months that Nalgonda MP Gutha Sukender Reddy, who switched over to the TRS from the Congress, would be appointed as chairman.
