A Telugu song seemingly written and sung by a villager on Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao’s rule and how he has failed to deliver on his promises, is going viral on social media.

Though the video was uploaded in August, it is being circulated on Facebook, Twitter and Whatsapp now, and has garnered more than 2,000 views in the last two days. 

The song narrates how KCR, as the Telangana chief minister is commonly known as, was chosen to lead the Telangana struggle, but has now sidelined some of the activists that participated in the movement.

The song which is roughly three-and-a-half minutes long, is cleverly worded as it points out how the chief minister is yet to deliver on his promises.

The song starts off with “Oh KCR saaru, ma kotha CM garu" (Oh KCR sir, our new CM sir), and reminds him of the time when he fought the elections, made big promises, heard their woes, and saved them from the clutches of the 'seemandhra' people.

The song goes on to say "We believed that God had descended to Earth and we stood behind you. You made big promises, but now we find it difficult to survive." 

"Will you listen to the voices in out heart? Oh Sir, will you come to our village again master?” the chorus goes on to say.

The next verse talks about how KCR claimed that he did not want any power and promised to make a dalit, the chief minister.

The song also takes a dig at his family and says "You made Kavitha a 'bomma' (doll) and made her a Talli (mother) for Telangana. You gave Sircilla to your koduku (son) and Siddipet to your alludu (nephew)." 

KCR's daughter Kavitha Rao is the MP from Nizamabad while his son K T Rama Rao is the state's IT Minister and MLA from Sircilla. The chief minister's nephew T Harish Rao is the state's Irrigation Minister and is the MLA from the Siddipet constituency.

"You have cheated us," the song continues, before taking a dig at TDP members and 'Samaikhyandhra' supporters who defected and were inducted into the cabinet. 

"You dumped real activists from the Telangana movement," the song adds, before warning KCR that he will be sent back home if he does not fulfill his promises.
