Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR), the father of BRS MLC K. Kavitha, has been impacted by the scandal surrounding her involvement in the Delhi Liquor Scam recent events. During election campaigning, KCR’s statements seemed muddled, with an interview surfacing where he hinted at plans to join the NDA and expressed his desire for his son, K.T. Rama Rao (KTR), to become the chief minister.
This interview, released on October 27, 2023, went viral, causing a stir before the elections. KCR’s admission fueled Congress’ claims that the BRS and BJP are closely linked. Interestingly, Prime Minister Narendra Modi contradicted KCR’s statements, asserting that he declined KCR’s offer to join the NDA and denied endorsing KTR for CM.
The Congress accused KCR and Modi of a secret pact, citing KCR’s inquiry about joining the NDA as evidence. Despite Congress’ attacks, KCR initially stayed silent, while KTR promptly dismissed the claims, highlighting the illogical nature of seeking Modi’s blessing for his CM candidacy.
However, KCR’s interview seemingly validates Congress’ accusations, potentially harming the BRS ahead of the elections. The revelation puts doubt on KTR’s denial and aligns with Modi’s version of events. This development empowers Congress’ allegations, raising questions about the BRS. How the Congress utilizes this interview to its advantage remains to be seen in the upcoming elections.
