Disregarding reality and making hollow claims cost dearly to Telangana BJP

The stalemate within the state unit of the BJP continues. Despite the best efforts by the New Delhi leaders, those in the state remain divided. After the victory in Dubbak and Huzurabad byelections and securing a few seats in GHMC elections, the BJP leaders went on claiming that they would come to power in Telangana state. But they are blind to the realities. Their hollow claims attracted people like Rajagopal Reddy and Etela Rajender, DK Aruna and others. Those newly joined the party are now sulking and complaining of lack of recognition in the state.

Mr Rajagopal Reddy is reportedly feeling suffocated in the BJP and is likely to join back the Congress party. Dubbak MLA M Raghunandan Rao who came out openly against the party high command for denying him any post or national spokesperson post as he requested is learnt to be thinking to quit the party soon. Ms DK Aruna though got the national vice president post, she is reportedly not happy as she does not have any importance in the state unit. So also former MP K Vishweshwar Reddy who is suspicious of alleged links between BJP and BRS has come out openly criticising the party leadership. He is lamenting for joining BJP.

Those who joined from other parties are very eager to secure plum posts either in the party or government. Many eyed like Eatela Rajender for the state unit president post. It created an unexpected disturbance and confusion among people and the party cadre. In the end, it seems the veterans like G Kishan Reddy, K Laxman, D Aravind and Bandi Sanjay would be left in the BJP.
