KCR who every year celebrates his birthday at Pragati Bhavan did not respond to the request of holding mega celebration at the stadium.
Is Telangana set to hand over mantle to KTR?
This year, KCR’s birthday gained more importance as there are rumours that he has decided to anoint his son and cabinet minister K.T. Rama Rao as the Chief Minister.
The TRS government recently completed two years in its second term.
There was speculation in the past too that the Chief Minister will hand over the mantle to him. However, KTR had denied it with the remark that the Chief Minister is healthy and fit.
Currently, KTR holds the portfolios of industry, information technology, municipal administration and urban development. The 44-year-old is considered as number two both in the party and in the government.
