Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR)‘s Bharata Rashtra Samithi (BRS) has been backed by two former CMs Akhilesh Yadav (Uttar Pradesh) and HD Kumaraswamy (Karnataka). KCR began his national political journey with the opening of BRS office in SP Marg, Chanakyapuri in New Delhi, after a Yagam on the premises at 1.30 noon on December 14, Wednesday.

Tamil Nadu’s VCK MP Thirumavalan along with several other farmers union leaders from Punjab and other places too were among those who turned up the grand opening of BRS office. A large number of ministers of Telangana and many BRS MPs, MLAs and other leaders too were present as KCR along with his wife Shohba and daughter MLC K Kavitha participated in the Yagam.

The presence of Ahilesh and Kumaraswamy signify the across the country support to KCR’s BRS. Though there are no elections in UP as of now, Akhilesh’s Samajwadi Party (SP) has units all over India. SP has contested polls in most states for the last several years. Now that BRS wants to expand its footprint across the country, SP can help BRS in the election bound states like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh by fielding candidates next year.

Already, KCR has announced to extend his support Kumaraswamy in Karnataka which goes to polls early next year. BRS can help Kumara’s JD (S) in northern Karnataka where Telugu speaking people are in large numbers. Similar exercise will be made in Rajasthan and other Hindi belt states where farmers unions can play a role in favour of BRS. After winning Telangana assembly late 2023, KCR is expected to sharpen his plans for 2024 LS elections.


BJP, Congress watch

As I discussed in a previous (December 13) story, all the national parties are keenly watching next moves of KCR in leading BRS at the national level. Both the ruling BJP and opposition Congress are observing how he will be expanding his national presence. AAP leaders too are  seeing the steps of KCR who wants to project good governance as an issue to beat BJP led Centre.

This is the age of politics of governance and efficient policies to lead the country. Welfare and development are going to be mainstay of politics of coming years. If majority of below the poverty people are attracted to welfare schemes, educated sections & youth are interested in development oriented policies of parties. KCR’s BRS is expected to give equal importance to these two planks to impress the majority people.

If KCR can sell this image of his rechristened BRS as a new age party that can fulfill the aspirations of majority people in India, he will be successful in playing a role in anti-BJP platform and can contribute to stop Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s bid for a third term at the Centre in 2024. Akilesh Yadav has already said that KCR would be a key player in the opposition camp to stop Modi from a 3rd term as PM.
