The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) is all set to hold the 'mother of all meetings' at the outskirts of Hyderabad, to highlight the achievements of the state in the past four years, on September 2.

The event will take place at Pragathi Nivedana Sabha at Kondara Kalan and an area of 2,000 acres has been identified, to accommodate around 25 lakh people. 

Speaking to reporters in Hyderabad on Wednesday, TRS MP K Kavitha said that around 25,000 people were expected to arrive for the meeting from each constituency.

"The main aim of the meeting is to highlight what the state government has achieved over the last four years as we are answerable to the people. Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao will be the main speaker of the event," Kavitha said.

The meeting venue, which abuts Hyderabad Outer Ring Road (ORR) and around 15 approach roads including one 200-feet road and four 100-feet roads are being laid to ensure faster movement.

When asked if government funds were being used for the meeting, Kavitha said, "The entire expenditure is borne by the party's funds. Even if the state government's services are used anywhere, we will pay them back from the party exchequer."

The TRS also said that the main dais could accommodate up to 600 people and 1,500 acres was also being developed with 16 parking lots, to accommodate 1 lakh vehicles.

Adequate care is being taken to construct toilets and set up drinking water counters and 5,000 volunteers are being trained to help law enforcement agencies to regulate and guide the people thronging the meeting, the TRS said.

The meeting is also being held amid speculations of early elections to the Telangana Legislative Assembly.

When asked if the Telangana CM would speak on the issue during the meeting, Kavitha said that everyone had to 'wait and watch'.

Last week, KCR met Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi. The meeting came two days after Telangana government's Chief Advisor Rajiv Sharma met Election Commissioner Ashok Lavasa.

KCR, as the TRS chief is popularly known, had dropped hints that the Assembly elections may be held early. The state elections are originally scheduled along with the Lok Sabha polls next year.
