The BJP has criticised Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chief and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao for denying the possibility of any sort of alliance with the saffron party. The BJP said that it’s the TRS’ loss and not theirs. According to reports, a close source of the BJP said that the Modi wave and mood of the nation would have played an important role in Telangana if Lok Sabha and assembly elections have taken place at the same time.
Earlier on Thursday, Telangana governor had dissolved the state assembly after the recommendation of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao. It was hours after the move, Chief Minister Rao announced the list of candidates who will be contesting the elections on 105 constituencies.
Speaking on the move to recommend the dissolve of Telangana assembly and to conduct early elections in the state, Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao said that he sacrificed his term for the people of Telangana, for the development of the state, to maintain the growth rate and to protect the state from the bloody fragility.
Meanwhile, seeking to gain mileage from the political situation, Telangana Congress Pradesh Committee on Friday said that it was open to an alliance with Telugu Desam Party’s (TDP) headed by Chandrababu Naidu in order to end K Chandrasekhar Rao’s rule in Telangana. The move by TPCC has come just a day before Chandrababu Naidu will head a crucial party meeting in Hyderabad on Saturday.
Following the decision to dissolve the Telangana assembly, political pundits are of the view that this has been done in order to avoid state and Lok Sabha elections together so that the BJP doesn’t get any benefit from it keeping the mood of the nation in the mind.
