Why Is KCR Launching National Party?

Why Is KCR Launching National Party?

Telangana chief minister and TRS supremo, K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) is planning to foray into national politics.

His plans for a role in national politics is not new. He made some attempts before the 2019 general elections.

He claimed that he would launch the national party or form an alliance of parties and challenge the BJP in the 2019 elections.

He met some of the chief ministers and held a couple of meetings in the national capital. However, it did not move any further.

Now, ahead of the 2024 general elections in the country and the 2023 general elections to the Assembly in Telangana, KCR brought the national party into the forefront.

It is now clear that he would be converting his TRS into a national party by changing its name. The change of name would give him the advantage of retaining the party’s election symbol – car – in national politics.

With this background, the question now doing rounds is why is KCR foraying into national politics?

He is not known to the people in other states, except in Andhra Pradesh, the second Telugu state in the country.

MIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi is known to the voters in some pockets of the southern and northern states, but not KCR.

Unless some prominent leaders with state level stature join hands, KCR will not be able to hold meetings in other states or introduce himself.

Though he delivers crowd-pulling speeches, even in Hindi, he is not a north Indian politician to pull the crowd and convert them into his party voters.

Pat comes from political circles that the entire plan is to script the history to say that KCR also played a key role in the national politics.

If KCR is doing all this only for his name, it is clearly called the identity crisis.
