BRS Working President KTR recently shared insights that shed light on Chief Minister KCR’s receptive nature despite popular beliefs. During a live interview, KTR addressed allegations that KCR is becoming increasingly disconnected due to qualities such as arrogance and unwillingness to engage with people. However, KTR countered this perception by asserting that KCR is, in fact, open to listening and altering his opinions based on advice.
One striking revelation was KTR’s mention of an instance from 2009 when KCR contemplated forming an alliance with Chiranjeevi’s Praja Rajyam Party. KTR, along with Harish, Jagdeesh, and others, dissuaded KCR from this alliance and suggested aligning with the TDP instead. This demonstrates KCR’s willingness to heed counsel and adapt his strategies, a trait often overlooked by critics.
Responding to concerns about personal conflicts among key figures in the political landscape, KTR diplomatically noted the importance of avoiding individual-centric issues within the system. He swiftly concluded the discussion, highlighting KCR’s openness to openly discuss various matters without any fear of competition.
Regarding the distribution of election seats, KTR emphasized that most incumbents were given ticket preferences. He recounted a conversation where he suggested replacing a significant number of candidates, only to be overruled by KCR’s belief in honoring the loyalty of long-term associates. KCR advocated for rectifying minor flaws in existing members rather than abandoning them.
These revelations underscore KCR’s pragmatic approach, showcasing his capacity to consider diverse opinions, prioritize loyalty, and rectify shortcomings within his cadre. KTR’s anecdotes paint a picture of a leader willing to evolve while remaining committed to his core team, ultimately shaping KCR as a receptive and thoughtful political figure.
