You could enable drive sharing in your remote desktop client config. Having done this (and after reconnect), you can use \\tsclient\c  aso. for your client's local drives in Remote Desktop Session.

Well, I found the answer myself. While creating remote desktop connection, go to 'options', 'local resources', 'more' and select the drives that are to be shared in the remote desktop client. then connect to the remote desktop client and on clicking 'My Computer', you will find the selected local drives as 'Network Drives'...anyway thank Qlemo for replying.
