Hyderabad: TRS MLA and former minister T Harish Rao resigned from the post of honorary president of Telangana Mazdoor Union in the state-run Road Transport Corporation (RTC) on Thursday,citing paucity of time to focus on the union activities, party sources said.

T Harish Rao, a nephew of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, became honorary president of TMU with a view to promoting workers' participation during the separate Telangana agitation. However, it has become difficult for him to participate in the union's activities as he had to give more time to official programmes since the formation of Telangana, the sources said.

He chose to step aside from the responsibilities of TMU against this backdrop, they said. T Harish Rao would, however, continue his cooperation for the welfare of workers, they added.

Harish Rao had held the crucial irrigation portfolio in the previous TRS government. (PTI )
