BRS senior leader and Telangana Finance and Health Minister T Harish Rao relished the defeat of BJP in Karnataka and said: “This is South India Story”, implying BJP’s efforts to utilize movie, The Kerala Story in the just concluded assembly elections. Harish, who is currently in the US to attend to his son’s graduation ceremony tweeted on May 13 evening: “This is The South India Story – free from BJP, evident from Karnataka mandate”.

“The mandate will remain so now and always. BJP’s downfall has started from South India and their account will be closed everywhere and will not even win deposit in Telangana. Best wishes to the newly elected government,” tweeted Harish Rao, without mentioning Congress. This seems to be official line of BRS president and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR).

Harish wouldn’t have posted this tweet without knowing the mind of KCR whose formal reaction to the Karnataka assembly results is yet to come till afternoon. Harish is not just nephew of KCR, but also a senior minister in the government. BRS working president and IT minister kT Rama Rao is now on a tour in the UK. Some more official reactions are expected from BRS brass, but Harish’s tweet tells us the gist of KCR’s mood.


KCR stayed away from Karnataka

CM KCR initially wanted to canvass for JD(S), but he stayed away from Karnataka assembly elections, fearing that such would be counterproductive and indirectly help BJP. Any split in anti-BJP vote would have helped the ruling saffron brigade and it is the least KCR would like to see. Though JD(S)’s poor show – just 19 MLAs, may be a dampener to KCR, he is definitely rejoiced over reduced numbers of BJP.
