Hyderabad: TRS leaders on Wednesday expressed a desire that their working president K.T. Rama Rao be elevated to the highest position in the government in future. This was their wish for Mr Rama Rao on the occasion of his birthday on Wednesday.

As the challenge caught up in the next 24 hours, Mr Rao himself tweeted urging people not to get him bouquets, cakes and splurge money on advertisements and hoardings. Instead, he urged his well-wishers to #GiftASmile....
