Dirty Politics Behind ‘Friendly Contest’?

KCR during the press conference after submitting resignation of his and his cabinet colleagues to Governor ESL Narasimhan said, there will be a ‘friendly contest’ in the Assembly segments of Hyderabad where the incumbent is a MLA of the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen.

This ‘friendly contest’ in seven seats of Hyderabad might possibly help divide the anti-MIM Vote Bank and help the MIM candidates win comfortably over their close rivals contesting on a Congress party ticket!

According to a Congress leader from Charminar Assembly Constituency, who did not wish to be identified said, “KCR is playing dirty politics to help his friends from MIM win in the Old City region of Hyderabad; and these friends will help prevent Muslims Votes in other districts of Telangana getting consolidated in favor of the Congress Party.”

This quid-pro-quo understanding between the ‘Pink Party’ and the Party which claims to be the voice of minorities in the State is likely to affect the poll prospects of the Congress party which is already stressed-out due to the early Elections in the Telangana State.
