The BJP is hell-bent on taking advantage of the Shadnagar encounter to hit the two Telugu CMs, K Chandrasekhara Rao and YS Jaganmohan Reddy, in one shot. Especially, Jagan Reddy’s open credit to KCR in AP Assembly is complicating the encounter case for TRS. The TRS Ministers have also sung praise of KCR after the killing of Disha accused which is viewed instant justice to the girl’s parents. BJP leader Raghunandan Rao is now saying that Jagan’s comments gave strength to the speculation that the Telangana police have killed the four accused in a fake encounter. Rao says that such comments by a CM will certainly complicate the encounter case at the national level. The courts and the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) will not take a positive view of this.
What more, Raghunandan has also indicated that a CBI enquiry may also be ordered into the encounter killings because of the rising suspicions. Raghunandan was once a close friend of KCR but now turned a bitter after joining the BJP. Going by the present mood at the Centre, the Modi-Shah may also take a critical look at the encounter issue. Political analysts say that if CBI enquiry is ordered, the TRS government is sure to face a tricky situation. KCR has angered Modi-Shah by ordering TRS MPs to oppose the Citizenship Amendment Bill in the Parliament. Everything doesn’t look well for KCR Circar.
