The ruling BRS party has established itself as a formidable force in the Telangana state. It is very difficult to defeat it by any party. Political analysts say the BRS party is poised to reap good results compared to the 2014 and 2018 elections. In 2014, the BRS won 63 Assembly seats and 19 candidates polled more than 50 per cent of votes. In 2018, the party won 88 Assembly seats, and of them, in 50 constituencies, it got more than 50 per cent of votes.
Mr T Harish Rao got 78.59 per cent of the votes in the 2018 election, Aroori Ramesh got 69.35 per cent, and Dr Sanjay Kumar got 65.27 per cent. Going by public patronage, it is nearly impossible to defeat the ruling BRS party in Telangana. While the Congress is engaged in internal squabbles, the BJP lost its identity and relevance in Telangana.
CM KCR through his unique welfare schemes and development projects has made an indelible mark in the hearts of the people. People have no reason to distance themselves from the friendly party that is at the helm of affairs. They are not ready to buy the arguments of opposition Congress or BJP leaders. When it comes to election preparedness, both the opposition parties are lagging far behind while the ruling BRS party has already way ahead. It has released its list of candidates and manifesto. It also started its campaign for the elections due in November next month.
