The Election Commission has agreed to change the name of Telangana Rashtra Samiti to Bharat Rashtra Samiti. Thus the first step has been taken in the journey of KCR’s national party dream.
EC approved it on December 8th and the timing can not be worse. On the same day, BJP registered a sensational victory in Gujarat and got to power for the seventh time on a trot.
KCR brought the idea of BRS to scare the BJP in other states with his freebies and the Telugu population present there.
With Gujarat’s victory, KCR’s statements over BJP will carry no value in other states. So, the proposed tour to other states will be put on hold.
At the same time, BJP will come hard at Telangana with rejuvenated vigor as the state will be their immediate target. So, it is important that KCR concentrate on home for now.
Elections in Telangana are supposed to happen in December 2023. He has to time the elections in a way to control the anti-incumbency and the saffron surge.
