The first election to be fought under the party’s banner is likely to be the Munugode bypoll, which is scheduled for November 4.
Telangana Chief Minister and Telangana Rashtra Samiti President K Chandrasekhar Rao is on Mission 2024 after months of presenting himself as a national figure and travelling states to meet anti-BJP leaders. He is getting ready to create his national party.
Here’s a primer on the big story:
- The muhurat (auspicious time) for the party’s launch, believed to be called Bharatiya Rashtra Samiti, has been set for 1:19 p.m. today. This morning, a general council meeting was held. It was attended by Janata Dal (Secular) leader and former Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy, among others.
- On Sunday, the Chief Minister, commonly known as KCR, met with his cabinet colleagues and all 33 district presidents of the party for lunch. KCR is alleged to have discussed the plan for the national party’s launch.
- Since 2018, KCR has been nurturing national ambitions with the traditional attack line that both the BJP and the Congress have failed the country.
- KCR has repeatedly stated on numerous venues that “the foundation of a national party and the elaboration of its policies will take place very soon.” He is now preparing for a direct confrontation with the BJP.
- According to BJP Telangana spokesperson NV Subhash, KCR’s entrance into national politics is merely a ploy to shift attention away from his government’s shortcomings. “The new party purchased a 12-seater aircraft worth 100 crores. This is a well-known example of public money being stolen. The BJP will not allow this “He stated.
- The first election to be fought under the party’s banner is likely to be the Munugode bypoll, which is scheduled for November 4. The party will most likely run for assembly seats in Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka, and Delhi.
- Minister of Tourism G Kishan Reddy mocked KCR’s national plans, saying, “There’s nothing new about parties coming and going. KCR once stated that the apocalypse is on its way, and this is it “.
- KCR is also likely to outline his party’s plan following the meeting in Hyderabad. There will be 283 elected members of parliament and assembly, legislative council members, zilla parishad chairpersons, mayors, and municipal chairpersons in attendance.
- The party wants to keep its electoral emblem, as well as its pink colour, but it is still a long way from becoming a national party.
- KCR has advised party officials that they must tour different states to talk about Telangana’s “very effective” welfare projects over the previous eight years in order to boost the party’s electoral power.
