KCR’s Family Behaving Strangely!
Is Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) founder-president K Chandrasekhar Rao and his family happy with Telangana Decision?
The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) founder-president K Chandrasekhar Rao and his family members have dominated the political scene in Telangana and held complete sway over the region for several years.
However, the moment of reckoning came with the Congress announcing formation of separate Telangana state, they have slipped into a shell.
Strangely, their behaviour has also changed. Unlike the common public in Telangana, they are not celebrating the creation of Telangana.
As long as the statehood issue was boiling, KCR, his family members including T Harish Rao, K Kavitha and K Taraka Rama Rao had made the most out of the turmoil and there are also allegations that they amassed huge wealth in the name of the Telangana sentiment.
They roared like lions but when the Congress sought to take the wind out of their sail, they have fallen silent.
It is said that KCR himself was shocked over the way the Congress went about the decision on carving out Telangana state with ten districts and Hyderabad.
There is nothing that he can demand now.
More worrying factor for him now is that the Congress has made him irrelevant.
The TRS sources say that KCR and his close family members have no takers even within the party.
Realizing that his brand of aggressive politics has come to an end, KCR has been telling his colleagues that the Congress was keen on merger of TRS with the ruling party.
It is said the even in the merger process, KCR will be reduced to play second fiddle to the Congress and none of his demands will be taken seriously by the Congress central leadership.
Ever since the announcement on Telangana, neither Harish Rao nor Kavitha have been seen in public. It seems a realization has dawned onthem that their importance has now been reduced to zero in Telangana.
