There are reports that Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao has applied for a diplomatic visa by visiting the US consulate on Thursday. Sources say that there have been no plans for any investment trip to the United States by the CM.
He had earlier visited Singapore and Malaysia as part of an invite by a prominent group. But a national daily popular in the state has reported that there has been speculations of some illness for KCR and there was already news that he may be visiting the US for an important treatment.
While a TRS leader had claimed that a US visa is valid for ten years and hence KCR has applied for one, to visit at any time in future, no one finds this reason convincing. The grapevine about KCR’s health concerns have been brewing strongly in the last few months.
But those who are close to him say he is a tough nut to crack and such issues will not really stop him from doing his daily work. Whether it is for a vacation or business or personal health reasons, the answer to KCR’s US Visa mystery will be revealed soon.
