Verdict: TRS public meeting a waste of money!

The so-called “unprecedented” public meeting in the name of Pragati Nivedana Sabha conducted by the TRS at Kongara Kalan village on the outskirts of Hyderabad is a big waste of money, majority of the netizens who took part in the online poll conducted by early this week felt.Asked how they had felt about the Kongara Kalan public meeting, as many as 4,382 out of the 8,779 people who took part in the online voting, accounting for 49.91 per cent of the total respondents, said it was a sheer waste of money.

Apparently, they are of the view that TRS president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao could have conveyed his message quite effectively to the people through forms of publicity.The speech of KCR was routine and boring, unlike his previous speeches. He did not even present his government’s progress report properly and only said the progress was there before everybody to see and experience. The party just distributed pamphlets at the meeting.

On the other hand, as many as 1,654 respondents, accounting for 18.84 per cent felt that the meeting was a big success, while 1,458 people (16.61 per cent) said that the meeting was far below the expectations.Though the TRS claimed that more than 25 lakh people would turn up at the public meeting, it was around one-fourth of it at the end of the day.Only 1,285 people accounting for 14.64 per cent of the respondents said the meeting was a big failure.

Obviously, they were of the view that the purpose of the meeting was not served even after spending over Rs 300 crore.
