HYDERABAD: Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS) supremo and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao on Friday asserted that a pro-farmer regime would assume the seat of power in Delhi next time. Addressing the first meeting of the BRS, soon after its launch at the Telangana Bhavan here, he gave the clarion call to the nation with the slogan 'Ab ki baar kisaan sarkar', signifying the future policy priorities of his party at the national level.

KCR said the BRS would introduce a new economic policy, new energy policy, new education policy and new water policy, if the BRS was voted to power.

Stoking a positive vibe, KCR said that he was prepared to hear pessimistic observations, but this humble beginning would surely win success for the BRS in the long run. He recalled the terrible humiliations he had encountered during the separate Telangana agitation.

The first meeting of the BRS was attended by Karnataka former chief minister and JD(U) leader H D Kumaraswamy, leaders of farmers' unions and the BRS very own Ministers, MPs, MLAs, MLCs and other functionaries. KCR spoke at length on what played the catalyst for the BRS to come into existence and listed out the areas where a course-correction was needed to bring about a qualitative change in the lives of the people across the country.

He said that the BRS would contest its first elections beyond Telangana in Karnataka next time in an alliance with the Janata Dal (S). Announcing the full support of the BRS to the JD(S), KCR expressed the aspiration to see H D Kumaraswamy emerging as the Chief Minister of Karnataka once again.

The Chief Minister also said that the BRS office in Delhi would be inaugurated on December 14 while the construction on the permanent building would take another four months to be fully operational.

He said that the BRS took its birth from a historical necessity to bring about qualitative transformation in the country. He expressed anguish at how politics have been reduced to an election-centric affair in the country and, in a statesman-like observation, felt the need to let the people emerge victorious from elections, and not political parties.

KCR felt that the country was in need of a new economic policy besides new policy initiatives for environment and women empowerment as well. The Telangana Chief Minister asserted that a pro-farmer regime would assume the seat of power in Delhi next time (Ab ki baar kisaan sarkar).

The BRS supremo announced that his party's policies on various aspects, including a farmer policy and water policy, would soon be formulated.
