Election The Commission on Thursday informed TRS President and Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao that it has accepted the change of name of his party from Telangana Rashtra Samithi to Bharat Rashtra Samithi.
In a letter to the TRS chief, the Election Commission referred to a request by the party to accept its name change and said, “I would like to refer to the cited letter on the subject issued by you on 05-10-2022 and It is directed to say that the Commission has accepted your request to change the name of your party from Telangana Rashtra Samithi to Bharat Rashtra Samithi. Necessary notification in this regard will be issued in due course. The EC letter was conveyed to the media by KCR’s office.
Telangana’s ruling TRS changed its name to ‘BRS’ on 5 October, marking the party’s entry into ‘national politics’. A resolution to this effect was passed at the party’s general body meeting here. Rao read out the resolution and announced that the party’s general body unanimously resolved to change the name from TRS to BRS.
The TRS party issued a public notice on 7 November about changing its name to BRS and asked members of the public to send to the Election Commission objections, if any, to the proposed new name.
A press release issued from Rao’s office said that following the letter from the Election Commission, the chief minister decided to organize the formation program of BRS on Friday at 1.20 pm and start official programs related to it.
On this occasion, Rao will sign the letter of the Election Commission at 1.20 pm and send it to the Election Commission office.
Later, he will unfurl the BRS flag followed by the inaugural ceremony.
The southern satrap asked state party executive committee members, party district presidents, ministers, MPs, MLAs, MLCs and all important leaders to attend the event at Telangana Bhavan-TRS (now BRS) headquarters.
Party sources had said that the CM’s idea was to take the party to the national level, even if the TRS symbol and colors remained the same. PTI
