It's just a week since the results of the assembly elections in Telangana were announced, in which the Telangana Rashtra Samithi emerged victorious with thumping majority over Maha Kootami or grand alliance of four opposition parties in Telangana.
The alliance, which was later renamed it as Praja Kootami or People’s Front, is now virtually on the verge of disintegration, as no alliance partner seems to be interested in continuing the same.
According to a report published in a national daily, the grand alliance has started witnessing rumblings from within, as parties started throwing blame on each other for the poll debacle.
The report said the Telangaan PCC leaders are in second thoughts over continuing with the Maha Kootami experiment further.
Already, PCC campaign committee chairman and Madhira MLA Malli Bhatti Vikramarka said the grand alliance of four opposition parties was formed only for the purpose of assembly elections.
“We cannot say now whether the alliance would continue further – either for ensuing local body elections or the Lok Sabha elections to be held in April or May. The party high command will take a call later,” he said.
The Telangana Jana Samithi and CPI are blaming it on the inordinate delay on the part of the Congress party in finalizing the seat sharing deal, which went on till the last day of nominations. These party leaders are not keen on tying up with the Congress any more.
Even the TDP seems to be not very much interested in continuing the Maha Kootami experiment in Telangana again. But, its leaders say all depends on what stand their party president N Chandrababu Naidu will take.
“Even if we don’t want an alliance, we have to go by the directions of Naidu,” he said.
