KCR’s vehement attack on Chandrababu Naidu may not help KCR much, but it may even backfire TRS to the core. As per several political analysts, KCR is barking up on wrong tree by attacking the CM of neighboring state in his campaigns.
On the other hand, Chandrababu Naidu, who had served as CM of the united state, has the substantial following in Telangana’s urban crowd i.e particularly in Hyderabad. Also, the population of Andhra in Hyderabad, other towns of Telangana are considerable. By attacking Naidu personally and raising Telangana sentiment, TRS is sending signals that it is against to Andhra settlers. Settlers who have been neutral so far are now mulling over their decision on whether to vote for TRS or not in the coming Assembly polls.
When it comes to Telangana people, they have already moved on from the Telangana sentiment. All the Telangana people are now wanting is a development agenda and progressive plank, but not raking up of sentiment, emotions. However, missing this, KCR is trying to just raise the sentiment because that had what made him the Chief Minister in 2014. KCR feels that the sentiment would work with rural population where TRS is clearly lagging and it was even evident in many internal surveys of the party.
Overall, many analysts opine that KCR should rather focus only on what has he done to the people in 4.3 years and what he would do next if he voted to power again.
‘TDP is Telangana Drohula Party’
‘TDP is Telangana Drohula Party’, this is what one has been constantly hearing from KCR. But if that is the case, why did KCR’s TRS have joined hands with TDP and contested together as Mahakutami against YS Rajasekhar Reddy in 2009. Only after the YSR’s sudden demise, the political situations in AP have taken sudden turn and all these have eventually helped KCR to come to power. And after coming to power, KCR has ensured that TDP would be wiped out and joined TDP MLAs into TRs and even inducted them into crucial cabinet posts.
