It looks like the central leadership of the Bharatiya Janata Party has still kept its doors open for the friendship with Telangana Rashtra Samithi, while the state BJP leaders are going up in arms against the TRS leadership.
This was evident from the way the Hyderabad Liberation Day celebrations organised by the Telangana BJP turned anti-climax on Sunday.
The BJP leaders, who moved heaven and earth to organise a massive public meeting at Nizamabad, were thoroughly disappointed with their chief guest Union home minister Rajnath Singh not uttering a single word against the TRS or its president K Chandrasekhar Rao.
In fact, the main objective of the meeting was to attack KCR for going back on his promise of celebrating the Hyderabad Liberation Day officially, once the Telangana becomes a reality.
The state BJP leaders, under the auspices of their president Dr K Laxman, had been touring all parts of the state sensitising the people on the issue and convey the message that KCR had succumbed to the pressure of the Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) and was not celebrating the liberation day officially.
But Rajnath Singh conveniently ignored this point, which was actually the main focus of the whole programme.
He did not make any comment on KCR or the government for not organising the celebrations officially.
He confined himself to praising Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel who played a key role in the merger of Hyderabad state with Indian Union.
He did not even react to the speeches made by the state leaders attacking KCR, as he if had not heard them.
May be, Singh had a message from the party leadership not to make any comments against KCR, as there is every possibility that the TRS might join the NDA bandwagon sooner or later.
Already, the Central leaders, whoever comes to Hyderabad, have been praising KCR and his government.
Even Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised the Mission Bhagiratha scheme in his recent letter to K T Rama Rao.
