BRS target is 2024 Lok Sabha surveys, says KT Rama Rao

Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS) leader KT Rama Rao said his party’s main focus now is on the 2024 Lok Sabha elections and he wants to start work in neighboring Maharashtra. The ruling Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) in Telangana was renamed the BRS after the party decided to go national.

Citing the example of Aam Aadmi Party’s success in Punjab after Delhi, Rama Rao, son of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, said his party would like to focus on neighboring states such as Maharashtra and Karnataka first as the good work in Telangana on best known there. The BRS will work in the face of farmer suicides and the alleged agricultural crisis in Maharashtra, he hinted during an informal talk with the media here on Friday.

The BRS counts on the support of JD(S) leader and former Prime Minister HD Kumaraswamy in Karnataka. In a scathing attack on the BJP and NDA government in the center for their “hate” policies and attack on federalism, Rama Rao said the BRS wants to promote the successful “Telangana model” of prosperity and development in the country.

The TRS working president claimed that unemployment, inflation and LPG price have risen sharply in the country. Rama Rao said he could forecast the increase in per capita income, IT exports, agricultural products, GSDP and the numerous welfare programs being implemented in Telangana.

If the new state of Telangana can achieve drinking water supply for every household in 8 years, 24-hour free electricity supply for farmers, and programs like the “Rythu Bandhu” investment support program for farmers, why can’t the same be extended to others? states in the country? he asked. Noting that Telugu films were well received across India, he wanted to know why a Telugu party or leader would not find acceptance when there is an intrinsic strength.

He claimed that the central government is using agencies like ED and CBI to attack the opposition parties and said the BRS stands ready to face any attack or conspiracy against them. The BRS would expose the BJP for their alleged mistakes and misdeeds.

Rama Rao claimed there is currently a “political vacuum” in the country as Congress has “failed miserably”. He took a dig at the ongoing Congressional Bharat Jodo Yatra and suggested that Rahul Gandhi had better pick up Congress Jodo Yatra first as senior leaders were leaving the party in various states.

“Congress is facing an existential crisis,” he claimed. Asked whether Prime Minister Chandrasekhar Rao has time for nationwide campaigns or handing over the mantle to him (Rama Rao), the BRS leader recalled that Prime Minister Modi held more than 100 rallies across the country as Gujarat’s premier in 2014 have .

KCR has made it clear that it will continue to be the CM and present the “Telangana model” to the rest of the country, he said. Asked if a campaign was being considered in Gujarat polls, he said the party leader would take a call on such issues. The outfit is not yet recognized as a national party.

Rama Rao expressed hope that the Electoral Commission would accept the resolution passed by the TRS General Assembly on October 5 and change the name from TRS to BRS. Responding to Rama Rao’s comments that the NDA government had abused key agencies, BJP spokesman NV Subhash said the BRS need not fear crackdowns if their leaders are not implicated in corruption.

JD(S) leader Kumaraswamy had said on Thursday that Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) had no intention of running in the assembly elections in Karnataka but was considering running candidates in some constituencies in border areas for the next Lok Sabha elections .
