Anyone taking a glance at the political developments in Telangana can say that the Chief Minister KCR has declared a war against the center and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Political analysts are wondering about the reasons that caused this sudden outburst. Some wonder if this is really a war he declared because the requested funds were not allocated to the state, or is it a political stunt to bar the progress BJP is making in the state. Directly or indirectly KCR has been cooperating with the center since inception, and this sudden behavior is leaving everyone in confusion.
In recent days, we can notice the BJP leaders often comment on the corruption in KCR’s regime. They were often speaking up about the possible irregularities going on with the Kaleshwaram and Mission Baghiratha projects. Well, the state BJP leaders were always critical about KCR’s governance even when he himself was on good terms with the center. Especially, there was an instance when right after CM’s meeting with PM, Bandi Sanjay went to Delhi and held a press meet bashing KCR in open. Popular belief is that the center themselves invited Bandi to conduct a press meet and talk about the political scenario in the state of Telangana, and especially the CM KCR.
Experts believe that KCR was a bit slow in realizing that it was Modi and Amit Shah who were orchestrating the entire drama blown up by Bandi Sanjay against KCR. On the other hand, there is severe criticism against the TRS government for handing over both the Kaleswaram and Mission Bhagiritha project contract works to Megha Krishnareddy. There are allegations that about Rs 80,000 crore was misappropriated through these contracts. Opposition parties have repeatedly said that KCR is going to jail when these allegations are proved. Regarding the same, IT raids were carried out on Megha Krishnareddy, Maihom Rameshwara Rao, and Pratima Srinivasa Rao. A few days after the attack, Megha Krishnareddy was seen in Delhi, assumed to meet the senior leaders and settle.
Political pundits argue that Megha is behind KCR’s interest in national politics, and suspected that he is in fact raising funds. On the other hand, it is believed that in 2019, Megha has funded the regional parties that were united under the name of the Federal front, which also aggravated PM Modi. This might be the reason behind the center focusing on the illicit activities going on at Kaleswaram and Mission Bhagirathi. They also assume that Megha Krishnareddy is funding KCR’s war on the Modi-led Center.
Analysts are of opinion that everything that is happening is directed by PK and produced by Megha Krishnareddy. The trio is building strategies to defeat the BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections and form a stronger government at the center. The recent interview of PK is proof of this. While PK is currently busy coming up with the plans, Megha is steadily funding the whole war.
