Embroiled Congress and BJP are nowhere near BRS in Telangana

The BRS party under the leadership of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao remains unchallenged in the state. The leaders of Congress and BJP who vow to unseat the BRS party from power are busy with the internal bickering in their parties. While the BRS has already completed a phase of its election campaign during the past three weeks, the Congress and BJP are lagging far behind in fighting for dominance within their parties.

In the Congress, a section of leaders are opposed to joining Ponguleti Srinivas Reddy and Jupally Krishna Rao and they approached party president Mallikarjun Kharge with their grievance led by Renuka Chowdhary. CLP leader Mallu Batti Vikramarka though said he would welcome them but he has his own reservations about the alleged demands being put by the duo.

Meanwhile, the BJP that lost its steam is putting up a brave face still. State unit president Bandi Sanjay told the media that he is ready to give up his post without any hesitation. The long-timers and those who joined the party in recent times from Congress are opposing the party’s high command giving any special treatment to Eatela Rajender who seems to have sulked. The party is now divided between Bandi Sanjay and Eatela Rajender groups.

The BJP central leadership is keeping itself at a distance by not addressing the grievances of leaders of the Telangana unit. The BRS remains unchallenged and is confident of coming back to power once again. There is no discontent among the people as is being claimed by the Congress and BJP leaders. Every household in the state is benefitting from one or more welfare schemes being implemented by the BRS regime.
