Hyderabad: Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao Friday signed on the dotted line, formalising the transformation of the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) into the Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS).

KCR as the chief minister is popularly known signed the official letter in response to the communication received from the Election Commission of India the previous day.

As announced earlier, KCR signed the letter at the scheduled time of 1.20 pm in Telangana Bhavan, the party state headquarters.
