The NRIs in the US have already started preparing for the assembly polls to be held in Telangana in 2019, with the TRS-USA gearing up for an active role.
A membership drive will soon be undertaken in the US to strengthen the party. Nizamabad MP Kalvakuntla Kavitha launched the TRS-USA two years ago, and its second anniversary was organized in Newark, California, on Saturday. On this occasion, a special logo was also released.
Apart from having the car symbol, which is the election symbol of the TRS, the logo also has the Statue of Liberty on it. The Telugu Talli statue, Charminar and Kakatiya Kala Thoranam have also been used.
Few members of TRS-USA wore handlooms, promoted by IT and NRI affairs minister K T Rama Rao. Whether they wore suits or Indian traditional attire, they made sure to wear the pink Khandwa of the TRS. New members were also introduced.
TRS NRI coordinator Mahesh Bigala said the party’s NRI units would be opened in several more countries. The units currently exist in US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark and Bahrain.
