BRS' national outing to start with Maharashtra local body polls

Adilabad: Bharat Rashtra Samiti chief K. Chandrasekhar Rao wants to expand the foothold of his rechristened party nationally by first contesting the local body polls in neighbouring Maharashtra under the banner of BRS.

TS forest minister Allola Indrakaran Reddy revealed the strategy at a BRS meeting held at Kinwat town in Maharashtra near the Telangana border. Indrakaran underlined that when Telangana Rashtra Samiti had been launched in 2001, the party first contested local body elections in TS and won many sarpanch posts, ZPTC and MPTC seats, apart from capturing the chairmanship of Nizamabad and Karimnagar zilla parishads.

TRS had then emerged victorious giving a tough fight to the then major parties – TDP, Congress and BJP – gaining ground in the name of Telangana sentiment.

Now that TRS has metamorphosed into Bharat Rashtra Samiti, the party will use the same strategy to expand its national foothold by contesting local body elections in Maharashtra, the forest minister told BRS party workers of Maharashtra unit in Kinwat.

Indrakaran Reddy said soon they will start selecting candidates to be fielded in the neighbouring state’s local body elections. He pointed out that Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao and BRS chief has already appointed party coordinators in the neighbouring state, who will look after election campaigning in the local body polls in respective districts of Maharashtra.

The minister underlined that BRS got very good response at the party’s meeting in Nanded. People of the neighbouring state have been attracted to the welfare schemes being implemented by the BRS government in Telangana.

Sentiment within the top leadership of BRS is strong that the party’s foothold will get strengthened nationally within no time if the party first contests local body elections in neighbouring states.

KCR feels the Telangana sentiment worked in 2001. Now, in 2023, farmers all over the country are sentimental about the problems they are facing. Telangana agitation-like strategy will work nationally, BRS sources asserted.
