A day after assuming office as chief minister of Telangana, TRS supremo K Chandrasekhar Rao on Friday appointed his son and former minister KT Rama Rao as the party's working president.

According a press release from KCR's office, Rama Rao's appointment was necessitated as Chandrasekhar Rao will have to concentrate on national politics and also focus on various developmental activities in the state.

"Party president and Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao appointed Sircilla MLA as the working president," it said.

KCR believes that the party will further progress under the leadership of KTR, the release added.

KCR returned as the chief minister for the second consecutive term on Thursday after registering a landslide victory in the December 7 polls by winning  88 seats in the 119-member assembly in the December 7 polls.

Soon after the results were announced, KCR declared that the TRS would play a crucial role in national politics.

He has been pitching for a non-Congress, non-BJP federal front of regional parties to take on the two national parties.

"...Congress-mukt Bharat... BJP-mukt Bharat... That is needed," he had said.
