TRS got here to energy in 2014 after the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, using on the Telangana sentiment. The pink celebration projected itself because the one that may rectify the alleged historic wrongs meted out to the individuals of Telangana area by ‘Andhraites’. There was a robust anti-Andhra wave that propelled the celebration led by Okay Chandrasekhar Rao grow to be victorious within the newly carved out state. Nevertheless, with KCR saying his nationwide plans and deleting ‘Telangana’ from the celebration’s identify, political consultants really feel that the regional maintain of the TRS is getting diluted, giving a level-playing discipline to the ‘Andhra’ events.

Being the CM of Telangana, KCR will certainly proceed to symbolize the state’s curiosity additionally. For these events, their pursuits have at all times been their non-public properties, and they’re additionally being anchored by the BJP. TDP has been in alliance with the BJP on and off, Jana Sena entered politics with the BJP. In Munugodu by-poll, TDP didn’t float a candidate, however its flag was seen with BJP candidate Komatireddy Raj Gopal Reddy. This alliance needs to behave in opposition to TRS.”
He additional mentioned earlier than elevating questions on Kaleshwaram undertaking, Sharmila should look into the initiatives that her late father, YS Rajasekhara Reddy, had began. “If Sharmila is questioning Kaleshwaram contractors, she should first ask who launched mega contractors into the state? It was her father. Her father began the Pranahita Chevella undertaking, which was redesigned into Kaleshwaram undertaking. The identical contractors that her father employed continued to work within the undertaking. He began Jala Yagnam simply to mint cash. Even her husband is a part of it. She is doing this as a result of she is a BJP stooge,” Krishank added.
