In a fiery denunciation, former Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao declared that the BRS party would abstain from participating in Sunday's decennial celebrations of Telangana's state formation under the current Congress-led government.

Addressing Chief Minister Revanth Reddy in a letter, Rao, famously known as KCR, alleged that the Congress party's governance over the past six months had tarnished Telangana's reputation. He accused the administration of failing to fulfill election promises and attempting to erase significant regional symbols from the state emblem.

KCR cited ongoing power cuts and turmoil under Congress rule as reasons for the BRS party's decision. He expressed hope that the state government would eventually focus on public welfare and meet its electoral commitments. Despite the withdrawal, BRS began its own celebrations with tributes to Telangana martyrs and a candle rally, spearheaded by BRS Working President K T Rama Rao.
