Hyderabad: The TRS, which was way ahead in campaigning in the recently-concluded Assembly elections, is again taking the lead.

In the 2018 Assembly elections, the party managed to paint the city pink with TRS hoardings on every pillar and post. As the country gears up for the Lok Sabha polls, the TRS government is again making use of hoardings and banners to attract people.

 

Banners have come up all over the city, on Metro pillars, bridges and bus shelters. The most visible thing in the city these days are posters of welfare schemes taken up by the Telangana government with Chief Minister K. Chandrasekar Rao’s face on them.

Every bit of the skyline and metro pillars highlight some welfare scheme or the other. On  Begumpet bridge, there are three hoardings announcing free, 24-hour power supply. Similar posters are seen also at Kukatpally, Secund-erabad, Khairatabad and Erragadda. There are also hoardings announcing other government schemes like Kanti Velugu, Rythu Bandhu and Kalyana Lakshmi Metro Rail.

The Chief Minister is making use of banners explaining his resounding victory in the Assembly elections, to announce government schemes. However, once the model code of conduct for the Lok Sabha elections sets in, these posters bearing the government logo and the chief minister’s face will have to be removed.

During the Assembly polls, the TRS had conquered advertisement boards, as these belong to private parties and political ads can be put up there only if the owners don’t have any objection.

The schemes on the hoardings now are a clear indication that the Chief Minister is all set, with renewed energy, to face the Lok Sabha elections, he himself again being the poster boy.
