BJP Ready To Join TRS Government?

BJP Ready To Join TRS Government?

There could be a lot of difference between exit polls telecast by various national media channels and the one conducted by former Congress MP from Vijayawada Lagadapati Rajagopal, but there is some commonalty between the surveys of majority of the channels and his exit polls.

That is BJP is going to improve its tally from the existing five seats to at least seven seats. Apart from BJP, independents are also going to get elected in good numbers. According to Lagadapati, BJP and independents will get seven seats each.

This is very significant, because the BJP has contested the elections on its own without forging alliances with other party.

Moreover, the BJP does not have the kind of networking and cadre strength of the Congress and TRS and in many constituencies, it did not have good candidates and above all it did not have the kind of money of power of the rival parties.

Yet, it has given the Congress and TRS a run for their money, thanks to massive campaign by several top leaders including Prime Minister Narendra Modi, BJP national president Amit Shah, chief ministers of other states including Yogi Adityanath, Raman Singh, Shivraj Singh Chowhan and Devendra Fadnavis.

Now, political analysts are keenly watching what the BJP would do, in the event of a keen contest between Congress and Maha Kootami.

According to them, if the TRS falls short of the magic figure, the BJP is said to be interested in extending a helping hand and might join the TRS government.

It is learnt the TRS leadership has already initiated talks with with the BJP leaders in this regard.

BJP state president Dr K Laxman said on Saturday that his party would play a crucial role in the formation of new government in Telangana.

“Without BJP, there is no possibility of the new government taking shape,” he said.

This would clearly mean, the BJP is more than willing to join hands with the TRS if necessary. In any case, the BJP cannot support the Congress-led Maha Kootami; so, the only option is the TRS. This is subject to the condition that the TRS should have edge over Maha Kootami. 

But if the alliance is closer to the majority rank, it might not make such an attempt, an analyst said.
