Telangana CM KCR announced BRS on the occasion of Dussehra with many hopes.. and many more goals. A resolution was passed to change the TRS party into BRS. A request was sent to EC asking for approval. But, Election Commission has not decided on anything yet. There are many reasons for that. EC is focusing on Himachal Pradesh and Gujarat elections even when the issue of BRS comes up. Moreover, by-election work has also been started in many states. In this order, KCR’s BRS-related work is delayed. However, there were speculations that KCR went to Delhi after attending Mulayam Singh’s funeral to focus on BRS, meet the leaders of many parties, and contact EC. While on the other hand, no confirmation about anything has come out. Though it has been more than a week in Delhi, there is no news so far.
A full bench meeting of three commissioners is required to take a decision on BRS. Currently, one post of the commissioner is vacant. The Center has to replace it. It is not known when the center will do this. According to the rules, the EC has to take some precautions to change the name of Bharat Rashtra Samithi. Checking if anyone else has applied in that name. Along with this, Himachal and Gujarat elections are still going on. According to this calculation, EC will be busy with assembly elections till December 8. There is a discussion that there will be a chance to focus on BRS only after that.
Immediately after the announcement of BRS, there will be a public meeting in Delhi. He said that there will be an open meeting in December. However, as the EC did not resolve anything, the meeting is now overshadowed. In fact, experts say that there is a lot of procedure involved in order to convert the TRS into BRS. It is said that EC may take a long time. However, some TRS leaders are talking about the fact that people’s fascination for this news will fade away with time.
The Pre-Requisites to be qualified as a National Party:
– According to the Central Election Commission 1968, candidates in four or more states must contest for Parliament or Assembly seats in the last general election.
– Six percent of the votes cast in the election should be obtained.
– At least four candidates should be elected as MPs from any one state or all the states.
– Must be recognized as a regional party in at least four states.
– Should have won at least two percent of the total seats in the Lok Sabha in the last general election. The winning candidates should be elected from three states.
There is no chance of BRS qualifying in most of the above rules. Because so far TRS has been limited to Telangana. EC recognizes candidates who have competed in at least four states. Analysts say that TRS and BRS will be recognized only after contesting in many states in the next elections. Even if it gets six percent votes, it must also get recognized as a regional party in four states.
