What Is The Reason Behind BJP Soft Peddling Of TRS?

BJP, which went on criticising TRS government after its National President Amit Shah visited Telangana, became silent for a few days. Is there any game plan behind the ceasefire?

Hyderabad: There was heated exchange of words between TRS and BJP after BJP national president Amit Shah visited Telangana a few days ago. Suddenly BJP kept silent even though they got a weapon against KCR that is Miyapur Land scam.

As per political observers, it is the game plan by BJP for Presidential elections which are going to be held in last week of June.
Amit Shah had a plan to gather maximum support of regional parties for its candidate at Rasthtrapathi Bhavan.

State BJP leaders are in a hope that TRS will back NDA’s candidate and they don’t want to spoil the relations between TRS and BJP for the time being.

But once the Presidential elections get completed, State BJP leaders will plan a Delhi trip to take instruction from the party high command on the way forward in Telangana. Miyapur Land scam is sure to come up for discussion.

Amit Shah will visit Telangana once again in the month of September and will stay for six days. His yatra will witness public meeting in Hyderabad by PM Modi.

Finally Congress Swings Into Action On Miyapur Land Scam

The Congress party which is dreaming of coming to power in 2019, suddenly went into silence after Miyapur land scam came to light. However, after criticism about their silence Congress leaders on Thursday met Governor, sought his intervention for CBI enquiry and also visited Miyapur lands.

Hyderabad: Congress Party which would be the first to criticize TRS government on any issue that comes to light is appearing to be silent till Wednesday. The Congress party was on the back foot regarding Miyapur land scam, though it is describing it as the biggest scam in the country. However, all the senior leaders were  not entertaining the media and were not criticising the government.

Those observing the events unfold, are saying that the T Congress leaders are behaving weirdly without coming to public and take advantage of the situation. From the TPCC chief who would call for a press conference on any issue, that he felt would get them some brownie points, is rarely seen crticising those involved in the scam and the government too. Infact, they are avoiding public glare in order to stay quiet.

In order to dispel the doubts and stem the criticism,  Congress leaders under the leadership of Telangana Congress chief Uttam Kumar Reddy visited Miyapur lands and also met Governor on Thursday. They also alleged that Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao’s family members were direct beneficiaries apart from some TRS party leaders. They sought Governor’s intervention to go for CBI enquiry into what is being described as the biggest scam in the country.

To activate the Congress cadre which was disappointed that their leaders failed in taking advantage of Miyapur landscam, the Congress visited the lands.

While BJP and TDP are ahead in criticizing and attacking the government on the land scam, Congress was seen nowhere.  The TDP tried to blow it out of proportions. The TDP leaders met the Government chief secretary, went for a field visit and later complained to the Governor. They are even preparing to complain to the Central government.

Meanwhile, BJP on Wednesday said that they are sending all the details regarding the scam to the Centre and demanding investigation.

But the Congress, which is claiming that it would form government in 2019, was slow on the land scam. Only after the Telugu Desam leaders sought appointment of Governor, they have pressed  Ranga Reddy leaders into service and on Thursday met the Governor too.

Meanwhile, speculations and rumours are doing rounds regarding the silence of Congress leaders. While, the land scam started during Congress rule, many leaders fear that their links might come to light in the scam. Even TRS MP KK stated that he bought the land when he was in the Congress party.

Now Name of D Srinivas In Land Scam

Many skeletons are stumbling out of TRS’s shelf after the Miyapur land scam came to light. While KK’s name came out recently, the other high profile name that came out to light is that of D Srinivas.

Hyderabad:  The names of important leaders in TRS are coming to light in land scams. While party general secretary and MP KK is mired in the Miyapur land scam and facing allegations, freshly another leader’s name came out.

Allegations against senior leader- Rajya Sabha member D. Srinivas are being levelled. The news that he got the assigned lands meant for the poor registered on his name has become sensational. Both the leaders, belonging to same community, were in Congress and came into TRS. The TRS chief invited them into the party and assigned them crucial roles. Now the very existence of these leaders in the party became a headache to him.

After the formation of Telangana, TRS which formed the first government in the State, though faced many allegations, refuted them ably. But, because of these leaders, the image of TRS government is getting tarnished.

The lands that DS reportedly got registered are in Goudavelli- Railapur road near Girmapur village of Medchal Mandal.  Some q9 acres of land in survey number 221 have become controversial. This land was allocated to poor Mudiraj community when Indira Gandhi was the Prime Minister. This land was bought by Bokka Yadireddy from Mudirajs in 1972-73. Later in 2015 DS follower, A.V. Satyanarayana bought this land from the sons of Yadireddy sons. Of this 4 acres are in the name of DS. This land was registered in Medchal sub-registrar office in 2015. They have filed for a mutation in the local Tehsildar office this year January. The revenue officials who investigated this lands refused to sanction it. Now it has become a point of discussion.

Former TDP MP Joins TRS: Big Jolt For TTDP

Former MP Ramesh Rathod is a valuable catch for the TRS. With him and other leaders joining the ruling party, the TDP is as good as finished in Adilabad, once its forte.

Hyderabad: At a time when Mahanadu of the TDP in Andhra Pradesh is in full swing with festive atmosphere at Vizag, the party faced a big jolt in Telangana with former MP and party Politburo member Ramesh Rathod joining the TRS.

Ramesh Rathode at Pragathi Bhvan said on Monday that he was inspired by CM KCR’s schemes and TRS ideology before a pink shawl was presented to him by KCR.

With this defection, the TDP has lost its base in Adilabad district. The TTDP is left with the party working president Revanth Reddy and president L. Ramana who are trying to infuse oxygen into the party.

Minister Thummala Nageswara Rao’s mediation worked well for Rathode and the TDP leaders in Adilabad district, once a forte of the TDP, is cleared and adored pink colour.

Amid Amit Shah’s Visit TRS Convenes MPs, MLAs Meet On May 27

In view of high profile visits to the state, CM KCR feels that it is important to keep his flock together and persuade them to stay in the party.

Hyderabad: The political atmosphere in the State has heated up with the arrival of BJP National President Amit Shah to Telangana and upcoming tour of Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi. In this regard, the TRS too has decided to hold a meeting of its MPs and MLAs’ on May 27.

The Party sources said that the organizational matters of the party and the implementation of various welfare schemes would be discussed in the meeting. The Chief Minister Chandrashekhar Rao has asked all the party MPs, MLAs’ and MLCs’ to attend the meeting without fail.

Shah, who is touring in Telangana, is known for his master strategies. He has been touring at the grass root level and interacting with people inquiring about the implementation of central schemes and indirectly criticizing TRS when their answer was negative.

This has naturally irked the ruling TRS Party. In fact, there were reports that the TRS was gearing up for early polls and preparing for it. The party is also following the same formula of the BJP in publicizing the schemes being implemented in the state.

But with Amit Shah’s visit, their plans seem to have gone awry. The ruling TRS Party, which is maintaining a dignified silence despite Shah’s criticism, has decided to meet its leaders and chalk out an action plan to effectively rebut the criticism.

Apart from reviewing the implementation of schemes and development works, the leaders will also discuss the party membership drive and appointment of party committees.

In the view of high profile visits to the state, TRS Chief Chandrashekhar Rao feels that it is important to keep his flock together and persuade them to stay in the party.

Will It Be TRS Vs BJP In Telangana?

Amit Shah is expected to herald sweeping changes in Telangana politics with his three-day visit when many leaders from the Congress and TTDP are likely to meet him.

Hyderabad: Well the political scenario is going to change as per political experts in Telangana for next elections. Amit Shah’s tour may bring a lot of changes in State politics. Amit Shah will be touring Telangana in last week of May.

As per sources, leaders from Congress and TTDP are ready to join BJP to fight against TRS, the only weapon they are looking for political survival is once again MODI.

It is clear that TTDP is in a risk of losing its existence in Telangana state with only 3 MLAs representing the party and with clear indications that the BJP will not join TDP in AP; TBJP leaders are trying to woo the balance of TTDP MLAS into their party. They are mainly targeting the only charismatic leader of TTDP, Revanth Reddy. There are also rumour which suggest that the BJP top leadership said no to a proposal to admit Revant into the party. The leaders pointed out the case of note for vote which Revant is facing. However, all eyes will be on Revant when Amit Shah visits Hyderabad.

Coming to T Congress, though their leader Rahul Gandhi has plans to visit Sanga Reddy on June 1st, few senior leaders who believe that the Congress has no chance to come to power both in the state and the centre, are looking towards BJP.

Leaders from Nalgonda, Adilabad, Karimnagar, Khammam are among those who are willing to join the BJP.

TRS is keenly observing the strategic plan being implemented by the BJP and it plans to move closer to AIMIM, but line is not cleared until now by the AIMIM. At the same time, the TRS is playing a safe game with BJP and recently TRS MP Jithender reddy made a statement that his party will support NDA Presidential candidate.

This is a game plan by BJP and TRS who are trying to gain upper hand in next elections, One wants to regain power and the other wants to use MODI MANTRA to attain power.

We have to see whom the swing will favour after Amit Shah’s tour.

Hyderabad: There is no signal as such on change of guard and Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao was today unanimously re-elected as the president of Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS), the party he formed in 2001.

Soon after the announcement at Telangana Bhavan, party leaders and activists raised slogans and distributed sweets. The election formality was completed just two hours ahead of formal start of proceedings of party’s 11th plenary at Kompally.

Thanking everyone for electing him, Mr Rao said TRS is now the biggest political party in the country with a membership of whopping 75 lakh. This is possible due to the unstinted support from the Telangana people towards TRS, he added. “we started the party for achieving separate state and during the struggle, we faced many an ordeal. Finally, we achieved the separate state and since then, there is no looking back for the party. People have been reposing faith in us and in a way entire Telangana has become a member in the party. This is possible because the party is doing exactly the same as per people’s aspirations.  So, this journey will continue and the party will remain forever in the hearts of five crore Telangana people in the decades to come” Mr Rao stated.

As per the election schedule, the process of filing the nominations for the party president’s post began on April 14 and continued till April 18. The nominations were scrutinised on April 19 and yesterday was the day for withdrawl, Mr Nayini said.

T TDP is coming up with new strategies to Counter TRS in 2019 elections

Hyderabad: With TRS busy in arrangements for the plenary sessions and public meeting to be held on April 27 at Warangal, opposition parties started raising voice against the government with the TTDP playing key role with new strategies.

TTDP working President Revanth Reddy announced that party will give  100 seats to youth in coming elections, if delimitation comes into effect and seats get increased to 153. A new strategy to pull youth votes to crush TRS which played same game against TDP during T agitation by provoking Universities students.

TTDP is coming with prolonged discussions on the strategies like uniting anti-KCR forces (which look weak at present) to fight against four-member KCR family.

Revanth Reddy blasted TRS government by saying Pragathi Bhavan is now a Pairavi Bhavan and assured it will be converted into mutli-speciality hospital once TDP gets into power.

There are rumors that Revanth Reddy is looking towards BJP instead of Congress. TTDP plans to announce this stand during Amit Shaw’s visit to Hyderabad. But recent statements left people wondering about Revanth’s reported decision of quitting TDP.

BJP Targets TRS For 2019

Hyderabad: Is the BJP trying to target TRS for 2019 elections? Yes, says BJP President Dr K  Laxman. According to him, his party is trying to push forward SC categorisation through Constitutional  amendment, which according to him, will  help the party to emerge as real political force in Telangana State.

Is Midterm Inevitable In Telangana?

In fact, all is well with the party; it is only that KCR wants to outwit BJP and Congress. He wants the elections to be completed before both the parties take up campaign against his government and stabilise themselves.

Hyderabad: While the Telangana government is trying to project that all is well with its governance, rumours are doing rounds about mid-term polls in the State. While the ruling party TRS circles are discussing this issue in a hush hush manner, they are refusing to utter a single word openly.

In fact, all is well with the party; it is only that KCR wants to outwit BJP and Congress. He wants the elections to be completed before both the parties take up campaign against his government and stabilise themselves. Sources revealed that even KTR, the heir apparent is also in favour of midterm polls. The Chief Minister, who is already projecting his son as the next CM, doesn’t want to take any chances by waiting till 2019. Though not announcing his intentions directly, KCR instructed his ministers and MLAs’ to be in their constituencies by the end of the month and judge the public mood and response to their policies and schemes. He asked them to visit every village and campaign about government schemes, bring awareness and prevent any negative campaign by the opposition parties. It is also know that, he asked his son to participate in district level party and public meetings and campaign about the government schemes and policies a la BJP strategy. Exactly, this is the way BJP has planned to go about for the 2019 general elections. They already instructed ministers and MPs, leaders to go into public and campaign about their schemes.

It is a known fact there are other contenders like Harish Rao who had been working for the party since its formation. A section of party cadre believe that he is more eligible to be the CM as he is more connected with grass root level leaders and cadre too. Precisely this is the reason why KCR wanted his son to visit every district and get in touch with the leaders and cadre there, thus he can emerge as a strong contender for the CM post. To make KTR more popular among the public, it is known that he is given special powers to take spot decisions on representations received and make announcements during public meetings. Thereby, get projected and introduced as the future CM.

All these indicate that preparations are on for mid-term polls in the state and many ruling party leaders are anonymously admitting this. It is also being said that KCR wants become active in national politics for the welfare of the State. He feels that he can effectively communicate with the Centre as national president of TRS. Rumour mills say that he is eyeing to be a part of the third front.

A major reshuffle in the State Cabinet is also on the offing by the end of the month. It is said that many popular ministers would be removed from their posts and would be given the task of strengthening the party at grass root level. More young faces would be seen and this team with KTR as their leader would be in the next elections ring. Already, the party started membership drive.

Hyderabad/Amaravati: In a pleasant surprise, a youth from Andhra Pradesh, in a tweet, urged Telangana IT Minister K T Ramarao to launch TRS in Andhra Pradesh as he was vexed with the existing political leaders in that State.

Stating that he doesn’t like the TD government in AP, the youth urged KTR to launch TRS unit in AP. “We are eagerly waiting for development”, he tweeted.

The youth also praised KTR saying that the TRS governance in Telangana was far better than TD government in AP.

“Sir KTR, we are disgusted and disillusioned with political leaders in AP. Please start your party in AP also. Not only in TS, we are waiting 4u”, the youth tweeted.

“Curiously responding to the request of the youth from AP,” KTR said he was immersed in the developmental works and the TRS government was striving to fulfil promises made to the people.

KTR thanked the Andhra youth for recognising the TRS government’s performance. “We have more than enough to do in Telangana brother. Thanks for the kind comments though,” KTR tweeted.

Similarly, several netizens responded on KTR’s tweet from both the Telangana and AP states. Some Andhra people opined that there was a need to spread the TRS to AP State. Telangana netizens praised KTR’s answer to the Andhra youth.

It may be recalled that several people erected flexes in Tirupati for welcoming Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao when the latter visited the holy city for a darshan of Lord Sri Venkateswara, few months ago. Some enthusiastic people in AP had erected flexes at important places during KCR’s birthday celebrations.

It may be recalled that KTR had made a statement in a lighter vein during GHMC elections that he would contest from Bhimavaram constituency

BJP Dares TRS Govt For Open Debate On Irrigation Projects

Hyderabad: Stating that a leader like UP Chief Minister Adityanath Yogi would emerge in Telangana State to take over from the TRS, Uppal MLA NVSS Prabhakar has alleged that irregularities were taking place in the Palamur-Ranga Reddy and Kaleswaram projects.

He demanded that the TRS government constitute a House Committee or get ready for an open debate at the sites of Palamur-Ranga Reddy and Kaleswaram projects and made it clear that he was ready to prove his allegations.

Participating in the discussion on demands of irrigation, power, roads and buildings and panchayat raj and municipal administration on Tuesday in the Legislative Assembly, Prabhakar alleged that there was no change between the previous governments and the present government in regard to irrigation projects.

The leaders, who criticised Jalayagnam as Dhanayagnam in the past, have become ministers in the TRS government and were doing the same in the name of redesign.

He also alleged that the present government was allocating huge amounts of funds for the irrigation projects but was not spending even half of them. The TRS government failed to achieve single drop of additional water through redesign of projects.

The State government was not utilising the helping hand of the Centre more so the State government was diverting the Central funds to other schemes, he alleged and challenged that the BJP will not ask votes in case it failed to extend support to the State government in getting more Central funds.

Stating that the Central funds were flooding to the state in big way, Prabhakar alleged that the state government was not utilising the Uday scheme and it was not proper for the state government.

He demanded that the state government regularise the services of the contract employees working with electricity department. He alleged that the state government was indulging in unannounced power cuts instead of power cuts.

Reacting on it, Power Minister G Jagadish Reddy said that the state has excess power and there were no such incidents taking place in the state and it was not proper for the BJP member to mislead the people. (NSS)
