Dad For 'dosti' With BJP, But Son Wants Fight!

Dad For 'dosti' With BJP, But Son Wants Fight!

Strange are the ways of the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi leaders in Telangana in encountering the Bharatiya Janata Party which is gradually emerging as a powerful force in the state.

Ever since the party faced a debacle in Dubbak by-elections and Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation polls, TRS president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao has been adopting a cautious approach towards the BJP, while his son K T Rama Rao still wants to put up a tough fight against the saffron party.

Soon after the GHMC election results, KCR went to Delhi and completely changed a U-turn on many policies of the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance government at the Centre.

He did not utter a word against the BJP leaders, though they have been trying to provoke him.

His party MPs have also dropped their aggressive approach towards the BJP leadership. TRS floor leader in Lok Sabha Nama Nageshwar Rao openly said his party did not want to enter into confrontation with the BJP government but maintain a friendly relation to get maximum funds to the state.

On the other hand, KTR has been attacking the BJP leaders, at least at the state level, so as to prevent further rout of the TRS in the coming elections. He is making aggressive statements against the BJP leaders.

On Sunday, when the BJP workers attacked the house of TRS legislator Challa Dharma Reddy from Parkal at his Hanamkonda residence, KTR came down heavily on the BJP leaders. 

“BJP which was unable to convince the people with its arguments in a democratic manner, is resorting to physical attacks on its political opponents. The TRS wants to continue politics with values. But if the BJP wants to resort to such violence, they must remember that TRS too has the power, strength and the force to protect its cadre,” he said.

The TRS working president warned that if the TRS party workers lose their patience, the BJP leaders will not be in a position to get out of their homes.
