Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao ordered the RTC officials not to carry his photograph on the proposed TSRTC cargo bus services.
The CMO sent a note to the RTC MD to this effect asking him to desist from carrying the photograph of Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao on RTC Cargo buses following reports appeared in a section of media. The CM took an objection to these attempts and said his aim was to see that the TSRTC makes profits by transporting cargo through its buses and he has no intention of getting any publicity by it. “This proposal is not at all agreeable to me”, the CM said.
The CM made it clear to the officials concerned that through the implementation of several programmes and schemes, services should be rendered to the people and his intention was not to get any cheap publicity. The CM’s Special Secretary P Rajsekhar Reddy had sent a note to the TSRTC MD underlining the CM’s opinion and instructed clearly that the CM’s Photograph should not be displayed on the TSRTC Cargo Buses at all costs.
