Was KCR Referring To Sharmila Party?

While addressing the state executive committee of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi at Telangana Bhavan on Sunday, party president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao suddenly raised the issue of the launch of a new political party in Telangana.

He did not name either the party name or the person who will be launching the regional party in the state. But he said it was not so easy to launch and run a new political party these days, amidst such a tough competition.

“Is it so easy to start a new political party? It requires a lot of effort and strain to run a political party. Have we not seen the launch of several regional parties in the past, whether it was of Ale Narendra, Vijayashanti and Devender Goud? They have all gone into the dust within no time,” the TRS chief said.

KCR said even the proposed new political party would not survive for long and would be wound up within four days.

“It will disappear as fast it is launched,” he said, without referring to which party he was talking about.

However, it was obvious that the TRS chief was talking about the proposed political party to be launched by YSR Congress party leader and Andhra Pradesh chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy’s sister Sharmila. 

There have been reports that Sharmila is gearing up to launch a new political party in Telangana and the preparations are in full swing. KCR is of the view that there is no political space for such a new political party in Telangana.

At the meeting, KCR recalled that in 1995, he had won the assembly elections from Siddipet and his friend Ramachandra Reddy from Dommat (presently, Dubbak) on Telugu Desam Party ticket. Later, Ramachandra Reddy had quit the TDP along with K Jana Reddy and K E Krishna Murthy and launched a new political party.

“But within no time, they wound up the party and jointed the Congress. In the immediate next elections, Ramachandra Reddy did not even get the party ticket. Though he was a good leader, he had to pay the penalty for floating a new political party without any strategy. TRS in the only party after the TDP which survived,” he said.
