BRS leader Sravan condemns humiliation of wrestlers


Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) senior leader Dr Dasoju Sravan on Monday condemned the humiliation of wrestlers during a protest in New Delhi on Sunday.

He slammed the Narendra Modi government for the treatment meted out to wrestlers on the occasion of the inauguration of new Parliament building.

Dasoju Sravan, who is also BRS Hyderabad district incharge, participated in the ‘Athmeeya Sammelan’ held under the leadership of MLA Danam Nagendar at Khairatabad on Monday.

“Parliament is the representative house of people from all sections in India. It is home for both legislation making and raising issues. But when women wrestlers protested on the occasion of new Parliament inauguration, to raise the issue of sexual abuse by BJP MP, they were brutally assualted and humiliated. Is this the way PM Modi’s government treats our Olympic winning women wrestlers? That too on the day when the new Parliament is being inaugurated,” questioned Sravan.

He also expressed displeasure over the new Parliament inaugural saying the event appeared more like the “coronation” of Narendra Modi.

“The inauguration of the new Parliament building appeared more like the coronation of Narendra Modi rather than the inaugural event of a key institution in Indian democracy. Narendra Modi has set aside all the democratic practices and traditions and conducted himself like monarch during the parliament inauguration. This is a serious slight towards opposition parties and democratic principles,” he said.

Stressing that the “autocratic” and the “undemocratic” Modi government will soon be shown the door, Sravan urged Telangana’s people to be alert about “crooked tactics” of the BJP and the Congress.

KTR slams Centre over treatment meted out to wrestlers


Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) working president K.T. Rama Rao has slammed the Centre for the treatment meted out to wrestlers during their protest in New Delhi.

“Can any responsible leader from Govt of India tell us why it has to be this way?,” KTR asked on Twitter.

“These are champions who brought us glory on world stage! They deserve our support and respect,” he said.

KTR, who is also a state minister, was reacting to a tweet by wrestler Sakshi Malik, who posted a video clip in which police personnel are seen dragging the wrestlers.

Police had detained protesting wrestlers who were trying to march towards the new Parliament when it was being inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The wrestlers, who started the march from the site of protest at Jantar Mantar, were stopped by the police from proceeding towards the new Parliament. There was a scuffle when the protesters breached the security cordon.

Wrestlers Vinesh Phogat, Sakshi Malik and Bajrang Punia were detained by the Delhi Police. They along with their supporters wanted to hold ‘Mahila Mahapanchayat’ near the new Parliament building demanding arrest of Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh for allegedly sexually harassing women wrestlers including a minor.

Brij Bhushan Singh is a BJP MP from Kaiserganj in Uttar Pradesh.

K’taka poll result will have no bearing on T’gana, says KTR


Telangana’s ruling party Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) has said that the results of assembly elections in Karnataka will have no bearing on Telangana.

“Just the way The Kerala Story failed to amuse people of Karnataka, similarly Karnataka election results will have no bearing on Telangana,” BRS working president and Telangana minister K.T. Rama Rao, popularly known as KTR, tweeted on Saturday.

KTR, who is currently on a visit to the UK, thanked the people of Karnataka for rejecting ‘ugly and divisive politics’.

“Let Hyderabad and Bengaluru compete healthily for investments & creating infrastructure for the greater good of India,” said KTR, minister for information technology and industries.

KTR, who is the son of BRS president and Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao, conveyed his best wishes to the new Congress government in Karnataka.

KTR’s assertion that the Karnataka verdict will have no bearing on Telangana came after Telangana Congress chief A. Revanth Reddy claimed that this poll result will be repeated in Telangana.

Assembly elections in Telangana are scheduled to be held towards the year-end.

BRS, which formed the first government in the new state in 2014 and retained power in 2018, is confident of scoring a hat-trick.

The Congress, which failed to make a mark despite claiming credit for carving out Telangana state, is hoping that 2023 will reverse its political fortunes in the state.

The Congress camp is apparently upbeat over the result in Karnataka, where the BJP failed to retain power.

Congress leaders believe that the party will repeat its performance in Telangana despite BJP’s claims of emerging as the key challenger to the BRS.

Aggressive BJP, spirited Congress working overtime to stymie BRS


The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress will be the main challengers to the ruling Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) in the Telangana assembly elections scheduled to be held by the year-end.

From just one assembly seat and a negligible vote share in 2018, the BJP has become the main challenger to the ruling party, leaving the Congress party behind.

With four Lok Sabha seats in 2019, two assembly by-poll victories and an impressive performance in the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections, the BJP had a dramatic emergence in the state politics to challenge the KCR-led TRS, now rechristened as the BRS.

Under the leadership of Bandi Sanjay Kumar, the BJP is in aggressive mode to achieve its Mission 2023. Aiming to turn Telangana into its second gateway to south India after Karnataka, the entire national leadership of the BJP is focusing on the state.

With KCR looking to expand the BRS beyond Telangana with the slogan of ‘Ab ki baar kisan sarkar’ and challenge Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the BJP is looking to go all out to keep him engaged on his home turf.

For the first time since the formation of Telangana state in 2014, the BJP sees bright poll prospects. By adopting Hindutva politics and also targeting KCR over family rule and alleged corruption, the saffron party appears confident of storming to power.

In the 2018 Assembly elections, the TRS had retained power by winning 88 seats. The BJP could win just one seat. It finished second in only nine constituencies and in most of the seats its candidates forfeited their deposit.

However, the BJP sprang a surprise in the Lok Sabha elections held a few months later. The party not only retained Secunderabad but also wrested three other seats from the TRS — Karimnagar, Nizamabad and Adilabad.

Two wins in byelections had also given a boost to the BJP. However, the BJP’s hopes to score a hat-trick of byelection victories in Munugode were dashed by the BRS in November last year.

An impressive performance in the GHMC in the 2021 polls also boosted the saffron party’s morale. The party, which roped in its top central leaders including Amit Shah and party president J. P. Nadda to run an aggressive campaign, drastically improved its tally in the 150-member municipal body to 48 from just four in the previous elections.

Following the victories, the saffron party started to see a realistic chance for itself in the coming election and it is for this reason that the party is putting in all its energy here.

Hectic activity in the party camp during the last few months, a series of visits by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Union home minister Amit Shah, BJP national president J. P. Nadda and several Union ministers, BJP national executive meeting held in Hyderabad all indicate the importance the party is giving to Telangana.

Political analysts believe that the BJP is looking to unleash an aggressive blitz.

As the elections draw nearer, the saffron party is likely to intensify efforts to capitalise on sensitive issues for polarisation along religious lines.

The BJP has been raking up emotive issues which could help in garnering the votes of the majority community, especially in constituencies in and around Hyderabad and other urban pockets of the state.

After Bandi Sanjay became the BJP state president in 2020, the party went into overdrive to draw political mileage from sensitive issues. In what is seen as an attempt to challenge the AIMIM on its home turf, he launched his state-wide Praja Sangram Yatra from Bhagyalaxmi temple abutting the historic Charminar.

In fact this temple, whose legality was questioned several times in the past sparking communal tension, has become the focal point of the BJP’s politics over the last couple of years.

However, despite its big claims and attempts to project the next election as a BRS versus BJP battle, the fact remains that the saffron party does not have a strong presence on the ground across the state. The BJP’s presence is considered to be limited to north Telangana and some parts of Greater Hyderabad.

Political analysts say that except the Modi model of governance, the BJP has no other selling proposition in Telangana. However, even this is being countered by the BRS by calling it a failed model.

The BJP’s Mission 2023 may be impeded by the crowded political space in the state. The presence of multiple parties may lead to a split in the anti-incumbency votes, thus helping the BRS.

An alliance with the Jana Sena Party (JSP) led by actor Pawan Kalyan, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and the YSR Telangana Party (YSRTP) could give it an edge but political observers say it is too early to comment on pre-poll alliances.

Pawan Kalyan has an alliance with the BJP in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh but there is no clarity if it will be extended to Telangana.

Coming to the Congress party, a series of defections after the 2014 and 2018 elections, a humiliating defeat in the by-elections and infighting has left the party demoralised in its former stronghold.

Despite the defeats in two Assembly elections even after claiming credit for carving out Telangana state, the Congress party failed to learn the lessons and remains a divided house.

In both 2014 and 2018, the Congress was at least the main rival for the BRS but this time the party will be facing the polls even without this status.

The resignation of the sitting MLA from Munugode constituency, Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy and his defection to the BJP to force the by-election late last year dealt another blow to the Congress. It faced more embarrassment with its candidate finishing a poor third and forfeiting the deposit.

In 2014, the Congress won 22 seats in the 119-member Telangana Assembly. In 2018 it faced another disaster. It could win just 19 seats, though it had forged electoral alliances with the TDP, the Left parties and some smaller parties.

The appointment of Revanth Reddy as the new state president by the central leadership in 2021 after ignoring several seniors and strong contenders triggered an open revolt by a section of leaders, who saw Revanth as an outsider as he had defected to the Congress from the TDP just before the 2018 elections.

The change of guard could not bring any change in the party’s fortunes. Several seniors started openly attacking Revanth Reddy for sidelining them.

The continuing slide raised new questions on the leadership of Revanth Reddy, whose style of functioning also irked some seniors. Recently when he packed the party panels with his loyalists, the seniors raised the banner of revolt and launched a movement to save the party. They called it a fight between the real Congress leaders and migrants from other parties.

The allegation by seniors that AICC in-charge Manickam Tagore is siding with Revanth Reddy forced the central leadership to intervene and replace him with Manikrao Thakare.

Though the Congress appears to have yielded ground to the BJP as the main challenger, the grand old party still has some base in a few districts.

The maiden public meeting of Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi in Telangana on May 8 brought some cheer in the party camp. The party leaders remain hopeful that as the elections draw nearer, the Congress will gain in strength to capture power in Telangana.

BRS looks to accelerate activities with permanent office in Delhi


BRS national president and Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao will inaugurate party’s central office building in Delhi on Thursday, and with this, the party is looking to accelerate its activities.

The work on four-storied building for the BRS, which started last at Vasant Vihar in the centre of Delhi, is now ready for inauguration.

The BRS was launched with the agenda of comprehensive development across the country and empowering farmers’ rule in the country.

With the inauguration of central office in the national capital, the activities of BRS will be accelerated.

KCR will enter the office, built with perfect vastu, by performing rituals and special pujas and occupy his seat.

Telangana Roads and Buildings Minister Prashanth Reddy and Rajya Sabha MP Joginapalli Santosh Kumar have been constantly monitoring the works related to the construction of BRS Bhavan in the national capital and overseeing the inauguration activities.

The BRS Bhavan with four floors is built on an area of 11,000 square feet. Lower ground will have a media hall and servant quarters. A canteen, reception lobby and four chambers for General Secretaries are built on ground floor.

KCR’s chamber, other chambers and conference halls are established in the first floor. A total of 20 rooms are available on the second and third floors, including the President’s Suite, the Working President’s suite and the remaining 18 other rooms.

It was in 2021 that KCR had laid foundation stone for the building.

KCR had inaugurated temporary office of BRS at Sardar Patel Marg in Delhi on December 14, 2022.

KCR confident of BRS hat-trick in Telangana with over 100 seats


Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) President and Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Thursday exuded confidence that the party will retain power in the state by winning more than 100 seats in 119-member Assembly.

Addressing the general body meeting to mark party’s formation day, he said the BRS would score a hat-trick in the Assembly elections scheduled later this year.

“BRS won 63 seats in the first assembly election and 88 seats in the second assembly election. The BRS party will win more than 100 in the next election,” he said.

“Coming to power again in Telangana is not a big task. The priority is to win more seats than before,” he told the participants including ministers, MPs and state legislators.

KCR said two leaders should also take responsibility from the government in every assembly constituency. He called for connecting with people through programmes like Palle Nidra (Night halt in villages).

He said Zilla Parishad chairpersons, MPs and district in-charges should play the role of in-charges in the assembly constituencies where the BRS legislators are not available. The process should be completed within 3 to 4 months.

The BRS pulled up some MLAs over complaints against them. He warned them that if they didn’t mend their ways, they would be expelled from the party.

He asked the party leaders to take steps to reduce discontent among the cadre. He also wanted them to educate people about the government schemes, interact with them and mingle with them regularly.

The BRS chief said that the party will reach out to masses through producing TV ads and films. He said if necessary, the party will also run a TV channel.

Stating that in some villages, government lands are lying idle, he asked the party leaders to submit the details of such lands with survey numbers to his office. Suitable lands will be distributed to the poor to construct the houses immediately.

KCR recalled the formation of TRS to realise the dream of Telangana people and explained its evolution as a national party BRS to fulfil the aspiration of the people of the country.

“The achievement of Telangana state proved to the country that anything can be achieved in a parliamentary way. Now, we are moving ahead to keep the country on the path of progress with a slogan of Aab Ki Bar Kisan Sarkar,” he said.

Referring to losses suffered by farmers due to untimely reasons, he said the agriculture department should sensitise the farmers to complete harvesting before the unseasonal rains.

He announced that the government will purchase all crops including maize and sorghum like in the past.

KCR said that the state government is implementing an action plan to sustain agriculture and the welfare of farmers.

He listed out the achievements made by Telangana during the last nine years. The CM claimed that investments are flooding the state.

He pointed out that Andhra Pradesh’s per capita income of Rs 2,19,518 is Rs 1,00,000 less than Telangana’s per capita income. The per capita income of 16 to 17 states is much less than this.

The state registered surprising growth in every sector like electricity, roads, paddy procurement, agriculture, livestock, fisheries.

KCR said that Telangana also tops in per capita electricity consumption.

He slammed the Maharashtra government saying it has no vision.

“Maharashtra government says that it will go bankrupt if it implements Telangana schemes. The Telangana state implemented the schemes successfully without going bankrupt,” he said and claimed that people of Maharashtra are visiting Telangana to see the progress of the state.

KCR launches 22nd formation day celebrations of BRS


Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) on Thursday completed 22 years with the party president and Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao launching the formation day celebrations.
This is the first formation day after Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) changed its name to Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS).

KCR hoisted the BRS flag at Telangana Bhavan, the party headquarters, to formally inaugurate the party formation day celebrations.

Accompanied by BRS general secretary K. Keshava Rao and other senior leaders, he paid floral tributes to Telangana Thalli.

KCR is also presiding over BRS general body meeting, which is expected to set the tone for Assembly elections scheduled to be held later this year.

The meeting, attended by 300 BRS leaders including ministers, MPs, MLAs and MLCs, will discuss and pass a few resolutions including political resolutions.

In view of the summer, BRS has decided not to hold plenary on formation day. BRS working president K. T. Rama Rao announced that a massive public meeting BRS Maha Sabha will be held at Warangal on October 10.

TRS was floated by KCR on April 27, 2001 after resigning from the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) to revive the movement for statehood to Telangana.

Telangana came into existence as a separate state on June 2, 2014. BRS formed the first government in the new state and retained power in 2018.

As a precursor to the formation day celebrations, meetings of party delegates were held at constituency level on April 25. These meetings were presided over by Assembly in-charges and local MLAs. Party’s district unit presidents will coordinate the programmes.

The BRS held party meetings titled Athmeeya Sammelan across the state during the last few weeks to discuss various issues including the development achieved by the state under BRS rule, welfare schemes being implemented by the state government and the programmes undertaken by the party.

On the occasion of party formation day, BRS leader K. Kavitha recalled that KCR began the journey with a handful people and went on to achieve a separate state and placed Telangana at the top position in the country during the nine-year rule.

Kavitha noted that BRS is now working for the country’s development and for farmers’ rule.

KCR’s daughter tweeted that while yesterday BRS struggled for liberation of Telangana Thalli, today it is striving for the golden future of Bharat Mata.

Losing state party status derails BRS plans for Andhra Pradesh


The Election Commission’s (EC) decision to withdraw state party recognition to Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) in Andhra Pradesh is a setback to the party which was hoping to contest next year’s elections in that state on its poll symbol ‘ambassador car’.

The party, formerly known as Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS), headed by Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao had appealed to the EC not to derecognise the party as it plans to contest the elections in the neighbouring state next year.

The party leaders say that they were not surprised by the EC’s move. BRS working president K.T. Rama Rao said since the BRS had not contested the elections in Andhra Pradesh in 2019, the action of the EC was a “mere technicality”.

The BRS lost the state party status in Andhra Pradesh as it did not meet the norms and conditions prescribed by the EC.

The poll panel pointed out that the BRS did not contest Assembly and Lok Sabha elections in 2019 in Andhra Pradesh. “Hence, the poll performance of the party did not match any of the criteria laid down for recognition as a state party in the state.”

The BRS leadership also did not appear before the Commission to clear the issues raised by the EC in a letter sent to the party high command. The party, however, had made a request to the EC in this regard.

In March, the BRS had requested the EC not to derecognise the party in Andhra Pradesh as it plans to contest the 2024 elections. The EC had issued a notice asking the party why it should not be derecognised in Andhra Pradesh since it had not contested the Assembly and Parliamentary elections in 2019.

It was in 2004 that the EC recognised the TRS as a regional political party in undivided Andhra Pradesh. As the 2014 elections were held a few weeks before the formal bifurcation of the state, TRS remained a registered party.

In 2018, TRS contested the Assembly elections in Telangana but did not contest the simultaneous Assembly and Lok Sabha elections in neighbouring Andhra Pradesh in 2019. Hence, the EC had served the notice about the recognition status in Andhra Pradesh.

The notice was issued by the EC as part of its routine practice to periodically review the status of recognised parties based on performance in Lok Sabha or Assembly elections.

Since TRS has been recently renamed BRS and it plans to contest the next elections in Andhra Pradesh, the party leadership had urged the EC to keep its status as a recognised party in Andhra Pradesh intact. With respect to other states, it had said it will seek recognition when it gets mandatory seats and vote share.

Political analysts say the EC move is a setback for the BRS which is planning a foray into Andhra Pradesh politics by contesting Assembly elections scheduled next year.

“BRS will contest all 175 seats in the next Assembly elections as well as all 25 parliamentary constituencies, in Andhra Pradesh,” said BRS chief in Andhra Pradesh Thota Chandrasekhar.

Since the BRS is also looking to expand its footprints to Maharashtra soon by contesting the local body elections, its plans are likely to be hampered as it will not get the ‘car’ symbol. The party will have to opt for a free symbol.

It was on December 8, 2022, that the TRS officially became the BRS after the Election Commission gave its consent to the change in the name of the party taken by the TRS general body on October 5, 2022.

The party subsequently opened its national office in Delhi and appointed the party president in Andhra Pradesh.

As the party looks to expand its presence into states like Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Odisha with the 2024 Lok Sabha elections as the target, it hopes to get recognition as a national party from EC with a common election symbol.

“Since the ambassador car symbol given to us has not been allotted to any party in the country, we will request the Election Commission to recognise BRS as a national party. This will give us the flexibility to contest in multiple states,” BRS working president K.T. Rama Rao had said earlier.

However, it is still unclear if the BRS can get the common symbol to contest across states.

Party symbols are allotted only to recognised parties in accordance with the Election Symbol Reservation and Allotment Order of the ECI (Election Commission of India), 1968.

As per the EC’s guidelines, to secure recognition from the ECI as a national party, a party seeking such a status needs to have its presence in no fewer than four states with a vote share of six per cent or four seats in the Parliament representing all four states.

As per EC norms, a political party should fulfil the following conditions to be eligible for recognition as a state party in a state: Secure not less than six per cent of the votes in the last Assembly elections, win two MLA seats; Secure not less than six per cent of the vote in the state in the last Lok Sabha elections and win one Lok Sabha seat; Win at least three per cent of the total Assembly seats in the last Assembly elections; Win at least one Lok Sabha seat for every 25 members allotted to the state in the last general elections; Should secure not less than eight per cent of the votes in the last general elections held to the Lok Sabha or the Assembly in the state.

We will form government at Centre in 2024: KCR


Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) President and Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Friday exuded confidence of coming to power at the Centre in the next year’s elections.

“We will form the government in 2024,” he said while addressing a public meeting after unveiling 125-feet statue of Dr B. R. Ambedkar in Hyderabad.

KCR, as Rao is popularly known, claimed that his BRS is receiving tremendous response in Maharashtra. “The response is beyond our expectations. Tomorrow we will get a similar response from Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Bengal and everywhere,” he said.

He recalled that when he had left for Delhi in 2014, he had stated that he was leaving Andhra Pradesh and will return to Telangana. “With the same self-confidence, I am saying the next government in the country will be ours,” he said.

KCR remarked that this may look far-fetched to their rivals but it all needs a spark to bring the change.

He vowed to follow on the path shown by Babasaheb Ambedkar and fight to keep the country in line until the last drop of his blood.

KCR said after the formation of the government, the Dalit Bandhu scheme will be implemented across the country, benefiting 25 lakh Dalit families every year.

Under the scheme being implemented in Telangana, every Dalit family is being provided Rs 10 lakh financial assistance to start economic activity of its own.

He said 50,000 Dalit families in Telangana have so far benefited under the scheme while another 1.25 lakh families will be benefited during the current financial year.

The Chief Minister announced that the state government will spend Rs 3 crore every year to give awards in the name of Ambedkar to those making valuable contributions in different fields at the national and state levels. He said a Rs 51 crore corpus for the award would be set aside immediately.

Stating that Ambedkar’s ideals are still relevant, the BRS chief called for efforts to fulfill his dreams.

KCR said it was unfortunate that even 70 years after the Indian Constitution came into effect, Dalits from Kashmir to Kanyakumari remained poor.

“Parties are winning. One party comes to power after another but people are not winning. This situation should change. There is a need for people, especially Dalit intellectuals to ponder over this,” he said.

The Chief Minister said Ambedkar’s tallest statue has been installed close to the Secretariat so that the Chief Minister, ministers, secretaries and other staff coming are constantly reminded of the ideals and vision of the great leader.

Sukesh Chandrashekhar releases alleged WhatsApp chats with K. Kavitha, Satyendar Jain


Alleged conman Sukesh Chandrashekhar has made public his alleged WhatsApp chats with jailed AAP leader Satyendar Jain and K. Kavitha, BRS leader and daughter of Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao.

Presently lodged at the Mandoli Jail in the national capital, Chandrashekhar is accused of extorting Rs 200 crore from a businessman’s wife.

In the purported conversations released on Wednesday, Chandrashekhar alleges that there is a connection between the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, and the BRS leader with regard to the Delhi excise policy scam.

In a letter directed to Delhi Lieutenant Governor V.K. Saxena, Chandrashekhar has accused AAP and Kejriwal of having multiple contracts and business deals with him.

He wrote, “This very application and attached chats expose the link between the Aam Aadmi party, Arvind Kejriwal and BRS leader K. Kavitha, who are involved in the Delhi liquor scam.”

The allegations levelled by Chandrashekhar have raised concerns about the role of political leaders in the liquor policy scam. Further inquiries will likely provide additional insights into the mater.

Chandrashekhar in his letter stated that the very application and chats attached show the nexus between the Aam Aadmi party, Arvind Kejriwal and Kavitha, who are allegedly involved in the Delhi liquor policy scam.

According to Chandrashekhar, the chats submitted to the L-G will aid the ongoing investigation into the liquor scam.

“The said chats are with regard to Rs 15 crore given by me to Arvind kejriwal and Satyendar Jain which was asked to be delivered to K. Kavitha of the BRS in Hyderabad,” said the letter released through his legal counsel Anant Malik.

According to the screenshots of the alleged chats, it is evident that Chandrashekhar had a coded conversation with a person whose number was saved as ‘Kavita Akka TRS’.

In one of the messages, the sender wrote, “AK bro package has to be given. It’s ready with me.”

Chandrashekhar alleged that this package refers to an amount of Rs 15 crore.

In another chat with a mobile number not saved on his phone, and claimed to be of Satyendar Jain, one of the messages read, “Bro Ghee tin ready. Yes bro 15 Kg.”

Chandrashekhar claimed that in their code words, ‘ghee’ refers to money and 15 kg meant Rs 15 crore.

He also wrote “inform big bro” in the same chat, to which the receiver replied, “AK Bhai knows”.

BRS suspends two leaders for anti-party activities


Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) has suspended former minister Jupally Krishna Rao and former MP Ponguleti Sudhakar Reddy for anti-party activities.

The party’s central office announced on Monday that they have been suspended on the orders of party president and Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao.

The suspension came a day after Krishna Rao joined Srinivas Reddy, who had already raised the banner of revolt against the leadership.

Krishna Rao on Sunday attended an Athmeeya Sammelanam programme organised by Srinivas Reddy in Kothagudem, where he slammed KCR for what he called the suppression of democratic voices.

Krishna Rao alleged that instead of acting as a trustee of the state government and protecting people, the KCR government is suppressing democracy.

“People who fought for Telangana statehood have been completely sidelined after KCR became the chief minister. People are suffering under KCR’s rule,” the former minister said.

“Sarpanches are worried as the government failed to clear the pending bills and so are the contractors who completed irrigation projects,” he added.

Krishna Rao also alleged that when people question KCR about these issues, they are harassed and police cases filed against them. He remarked that KCR and his family members are acting like kings and neglecting people and their problems.

Srinivas Reddy said that KCR is dreaming of becoming a chief minister for the third time but it will remain a dream.

Krishna Rao felt sidelined in the party after MLA Harshvardhan Reddy, who had defeated him in Kollapur constituency in Mahabubnagar district in 2018, switched his loyalties from the Congress to TRS (now BRS) after the Assembly polls. A few months ago, Krishna Rao had dared Harshvardhan Reddy for a debate on the constituency development.

Krishna Rao had resigned from the Congress to join TRS in 2011. He was elected from Kollapur in 2014 on a TRS ticket.

Srinivas Reddy, who was elected to the Lok Sabha from Khammam on YSR Congress Party ticket in 2014, later switched loyalties to TRS. He alleged that TRS leadership had made many promises but failed to fulfill them.

He raised a banner of revolt after he was not even invited for the January 18 public meeting organised by BRS in Khammam. It was the first meeting of BRS after it changed the name.

He recently met YSR Telangana Party (YSRTP) leader Y.S. Sharmila amid reports that he is planning to join the party.

BJP, BRS leaders trade barbs over ‘shawl’


A day after Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao skipped Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s programmes in Hyderabad, the war of words continued between BJP and BRS leaders on Sunday.

BJP state President Bandi Sanjay Kumar took to Twitter and posted a picture of the shawl that he claimed was ready to be presented to KCR, as the Chief Minister is popularly called, at a public meeting at Parade Grounds.

“Beautiful handloom shawl would have looked even better on CM KCR, if he had attended the meeting at Parade grounds yesterday,” he said.

“Send the Shawl to this Madam! She may feel happy that Modi ji atleast sent a Shawl!”, replied Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) leader Krishank Manne with a picture of Modi’s estranged wife Jashodaben.

KCR had Saturday skipped the Prime Minister’s programmes which included flagging of Secunderabad-Tirupati Vande Bharat Express.

“Invite was sent, shawl was ready and chair was kept to honour Telangana CM. But KCR continues to run away when PM Narendra Modiji visits TS. BRS govt is not cooperating for the development of TS even though Centre is committed to the development of the state,” Sanjay had tweeted after the meeting.

Sanjay continued his attack on KCR family. “3 things that Kalvakuntla family wants, summed up by Hon’ble PM Narendra Modiji 1 – May KCR’s family be hailed 2 – The money of corruption should keep coming to KCR’s family. 3 – The money that is sent for the poor should be used in KCR’s corrupt eco-system. KCR Dora wants to keep the control of who would get what and how much. But today Modi Ji led govt has attacked the very root of corruption,” the BJP leader tweeted.

Corruption has become identity of Telangana’s BRS government, says Nadda


BJP national President J.P. Nadda on Friday termed Telangana’s BRS government as Bhrashtachar Rishwat Sarkar and said that it has no right to remain in power.

“This has become the identity of Telangana government. This BRS party has become Bhrashtachar Rishwat Sarkar,” he said while virtually inaugurating new BJP offices in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

He recalled that when Telangana was formed in 2014, it was a surplus state but today the state finds itself in a debt of Rs 3.29 lakh crore.

Nadda ridiculed the tall claims made when Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) became Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), saying it has changed its name but it has not changed its ways.

The BJP chief referred to the summons of the Enforcement Directorate (ED) to CM KCR’s daughter Kavitha in Delhi liquor scam case. “This is an unfortunate situation. Telangana’s image has become of a corrupt state,” he said

Stating that mere change of name does not work, Nadda said people of Telangana knew that the TRS and the BRS are same. “People of Telangana are giving a message to you. You need VRS (voluntary retirement scheme),” he said.

He alleged that there are scams in all sectors in Telangana. He reiterated that the Kaleshwaram irrigation scheme had become an ATM for the government, alleging that the project cost was inflated from Rs 40,000 crore to 1.40 lakh crore.

Nadda also said that the Modi government was doing its best to help Andhra Pradesh but the state government failed to implement the schemes of the Central government. “In the days to come we have to give a good and clean government to the people of Andhra Pradesh to lead the state,” he said and appealed to people to support BJP.

The BJP chief said that the Congress party has been wiped out from Telangana and Andhra Pradesh.

He launched a scathing attack on Congress leader Rahul Gandhi for refusing to apologise for using insulting words about OBCs, and claimed that the OBCs will never forgive Gandhi and the Congress.

“This party has lost all shame. Even when it has shrunk to this level, its leaders are still egoistic and very much arrogant. They insult the nation, make shameful remarks about the OBC community. This is all unfortunate,” he said.

K. Kavitha writes to ED, raises right to privacy issues


BRS MLC K. Kavitha has written a letter to the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the Delhi Excise Policy scam case, raising right to privacy issues.

The letter has been accessed by the IANS in which Kavitha, who is the daughter of Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao, has also accused the ED for deliberate leakage of false accusation of destruction of cell phones which led her opponent to defame her and her party.

“I am today submitting before your good self all the earlier phones that I may have used in the past, and as sought by you, which I could gather. These phones are submitted without prejudice to my right and contentions and larger contention whether a women’s phone can be intruded, in the teeth of her right to privacy,” the letter reads.

She further wrote that it was baffling to note as to how, why, and under what circumstances agency made such allegation, when she was not even summoned or asked any questions whatsoever.

“For the record, the first time I was called by the agency was in the month of March 2023, therefore I have reasons to believe, that accusation made against me in November 2022 were not only malafide, misconceived, but also prejudicial. The deliberate leakage of the false accusation to the public has led to a political slugfest, wherein my political adversaries have been flaunting the accusations, to accuse me of destroying the so-called evidence, and indulging in causing great harm to my reputation, and attempting to defame me, my political party as well as to lower my image in the eyes of the public at large,” Kavitha added.

She accused the ED was becoming a privy and party to these acts and sabotaging and sacrificing its sacrosanct duty of free and fair investigation at the altar of vested political interest.

“I therefore, hereby tender all these phones so as to dispel of any notion or adverse impression that the agency is trying to create,” the MLC added.

KCR urges BRS cadres to be vigilant against ‘evil forces’


Telangana Chief Minister and Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) President K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Monday appealed to the party cadre to be vigilant about “evil forces” and counter their false propaganda.

Exuding confidence that the BRS will score a hat-trick victory in the next Assembly elections, he said that people of Telangana will not fall prey to the cheap politics of the opposition parties.

KCR, as Rao is popularly known, issued a message to the party workers. This comes amidst questioning of his daughter K. Kavitha by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in Delhi excise policy case and the allegations by the opposition parties against his son and minister K.T. Rama Rao in the Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC) question paper leak case.

He told BRS workers that in an election year the onus is on them to remain in the midst of people and counter the false propaganda of the opposition parties and expose them.

The BRS chief said it was the responsibility of the party workers to strengthen the party further.

He lashed out at the BJP for resorting to attacks and creating obstacles for the progress of Telangana at every step. He alleged that unable to stomach the BRS’ “Ab Ki Bar Kisan Sarkar” slogan, the BJP-led government at the Centre was attacking the party on all fronts and also creating hurdles in Telangana’s progress.

KCR also referred to the struggle to achieve Telangana state. “Our party defeated many attacks and conspiracies during separate state agitation. Had we feared then, Telangana would not have been achieved,” he said.

Stating that BRS workers are the strength of the party, he said he would be indebted to party workers for ensuring the party’s grand victory in all elections from panchayats to Parliament all these years.

KCR also told the BRS cadres that for other parties politics is a game but for the BRS, it is a task. He claimed that considering politics as a sacred duty to fulfill people’s aspirations, the BRS government transformed Telangana as an index for welfare and development.

The BRS chief said that with successful execution of works and welfare programmes, the BRS government ensured that Telangana emerged as a role model for the entire country. It is now one among the five large states, which were contributing immensely to the nation’s economy, he said.

He said while Telangana achieved unbelievable development in all sectors in the last nine years, the country even after 75 years of independence was still plagued with issues like insufficient drinking water for households and irrigation purposes and electricity shortage.

The Chief Minister stated that China, Singapore, and South Korea are achieving rapid progress but unfortunately India is beset with communal hatred and lagging in development. He held Congress and BJP responsible for the poor development of the nation and alleged that both the parties lacked vision and commitment.

“To fill the void, the BRS set a new agenda for the nation and embarked on a new journey to influence national politics,” he added.

BRS-BJP poster war in Hyderabad turns ugly


The poster war between Telangana’s ruling BRS and opposition BJP turned ugly with new posters emerging in Hyderabad on Sunday, showing Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao’s daughter K. Kavitha as a culprit in Delhi excise policy scam case.

The posters target CM KCR, his son KTR, Kavitha and other family members.

A wall poster with pictures of KCR, KTR, Kavitha, Harish Rao appears like a film poster. The film title is “Kalvakuntla Dongalamutha” (Kalvakuntla gang of thieves). “Story, screenplay, dialogues and direction by KCR”, reads the poster

Another poster carries photographs of Kavitha with liquor bottles and comments about her alleged involvement in the case.

These posters by BJP are apparently in response to those stuck by Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) supporters a few days ago showing BJP national general secretary B. L. Santhosh as a criminal and wanted and targeted Prime Minister Narenrda Modi over his promise of Rs 15 lakh.

Posters had come up in different parts of the city. “Talented in MLA poaching,” reads the poster. It also announced ‘reward’. “Sanction of Modi’s promise of Rs 15,00,000.”

The posters came up ahead of Kavitha’s second round of questioning by the ED in Delhi on Thursday. She, however, did not appear before the agency, citing a hearing by the Supreme Court of a petition filed by her challenging the summons.

BRS leaders alleged Santhosh ran away from probe into MLAs’ poaching case by not appearing before the Special Investigation Team (SIT).

The BRS supporters had also put up posters last week when Kavitha appeared before the ED for the first time. Through the posters, the BRS tried to depict how the BJP government at the Centre used “raid detergents” to clean turncoats.

The posters carried the images of Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia and Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma who had corruption allegations levelled against them before switching from Congress to the BJP.

With hashtag “Bye Bye Modi”, the posters show how the “raid detergents” painted tainted leaders saffron. The posters also carried picture of Kavitha before and after the raid with catchline “True colors never fade”.

Hitting back at the BRS, the BJP had also put up posters and hoardings targeting the ruling party over defections.

Three BRS candidates elected unopposed to Telangana Council


All three candidates of Telangana’s ruling party Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) were Thursday elected unopposed to the Legislative Council under MLA quota.

Deshapati Srinivas, K. Naveen Kumar, and Challa Venkatrami Reddy were declared elected as no other candidate was in fray. Thursday was the last day for withdrawal of nominations.

An independent candidate had filed the nomination but the same was rejected by the Election Commission. Returning officer declared that all three candidates of BRS have been elected without contest.

While Naveen Kumar has been elected to the upper house of the state legislature for the second term, two others are first-time MLCs.

Poet and singer Srinivas was earlier serving as Officer on Special Duty in the Chief Minister’s Office. Venkatrami Reddy is a former MLA from Alampur constituency.

Soon after their election, the three MLCs called on BRS president and Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao. He greeted and blessed them.

Meanwhile, counting of votes was on for Mahabubnagar-Rangareddy-Hyderabad teachers’ MLC seat. As none of the candidates polled more than 50 per cent of first preference votes, the poll officials took up counting of second preference votes. A.V.N. Reddy had polled 7,505 first preference votes while Chenna Keshav Reddy secured 6,584 votes. The result is likely to be announced on Friday morning.

BRS, BJP play blame game over TSPSC exam paper leak


Leaders of Telangana’s ruling Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) and opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are blaming each other for the exam paper leak that has rocked Telangana State Public Service Commission (TSPSC).

Both the parties are targeting each other in what is being seen as an attempt to take political mileage from the issue ahead of Assembly elections scheduled towards the end of 2023.

Both BRS and BJP leaders were busy digging out the past record of the accused to claim that they have links with the rivals.

After police arrested nine accused in the case on Monday, the opposition parties, student and youth organisation demanded resignation of TSPSC Chairman Janardhan Reddy.

The TSPSC had conducted the examination on March 5 for 833 vacancies of Assistant Engineer, Municipal Assistant Engineer, Technical Officer, and Junior Technical Officer in various engineering departments. A total of 55,000 candidates had written the exam.

Following the arrest of the accused, the Commission cancelled the exam and also postponed other exams scheduled to be held later this month.

Opposition parties have made serious allegations against the Commission head, who is appointed by the state government. Doubts were also raised about the exams conducted in the past.

Going a step ahead, BJP leaders alleged that top leaders of the BRS were behind exam paper leak. BJP state President Bandi Sanjay Kumar trained guns on Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao and his team.

Sanjay alleged that question papers of all TSPSC exams were leaked and that the BRS government is messing around with the lives of unemployed youth.

The BJP leader also shared the OMR sheet of P. Praveen Kumar, key accused in the case. He said Praveen, who was personal assistant of TSPSC Secretary, secured highest marks in Group I prelims.

Hitting back at the BJP, BRS leaders shared on social media photographs of second accused Atla Rajasekhar Reddy with BJP leaders.

The police reportedly identified the accused as an active worker of the BJP.

The BRS has alleged that the paper leak case is a conspiracy by the BJP to defame the ruling party.

BRS Working President and state minister K. T. Rama Rao took to Twitter to request the Director General of Police to to enquire this matter thoroughly and bring perpetrators to justice.

“Even by the very low standards of BJP, this is vulgarity at its worst Just to malign Telangana Govt, BJP seems to have hatched a conspiracy to destroy the lives of innocent youth,” KTR wrote.

Sanjay came out with fresh allegations on Thursday. He alleged that Renuka who honey trapped Praveen is associated with the BRS. He claimed that her mother is sarpanch of Mansoorpally village and belongs to BRS.

The BJP leader said Renuka and her husband got government jobs because of the BRS while Rajasekhar was hired by the TSPSC. “BRS does all criminal things and shamelessly blames the BJP,” he said.

The accused arrested in the case include two employees of TSPSC and a police constable.

On March 14, Hyderabad police transferred the paper leakage case to the Special Investigation Team (SIT) of Central Crime Station (CCS).

Telangana Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan has already directed the TSPSC to submit a report on the question paper leakage.
