Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao 'to work as coolie for 2 days'
Starting Friday and for a week, Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao will be the state's Coolie No 1, available for hire for two days against daily wages.
KCR, as he is known, has decreed that all ministers, legislators, leaders and activists from his party will raise funds by working as coolies, offering themselves for physical labour for two days each. The money earned will be used to fund the expenses of the annual convention of the Telangana Rashtriya Samiti. The gathering will held next April 21 at multiple locations across the state, followed by a gigantic public meeting at Warangal, considered the heartland of Telangana.
By offering themselves for hire for two days, including as farm-hands, TRS leaders are expected to earn enough to pay travel and food expenses to attend their party convention.
The CM has titled the week-long initiative "Gulaabi Cooli Dinalu'' or "Pink Labourer Days.'
