Dalit CM- This was the occasional assurance given by KCR during the movement. But he took the u-turn after winning and became silent on it. After that, we saw how much respect he gave to Dalit leaders and officials. In both cases, the Opposition has been reminding us of how many Dalit leaders have become ministers and how many officials have been given due prominence. Criticisms were also heard that this meant that KCR’s sincerity towards Dalits was being propagated in order to gain attention and attain the votes of Dalits but nothing more. Despite the rush to implement Dalit Bandhu, there was huge criticism that it is mostly the TRS leaders who were enjoying the scheme. And we see every year in the central and national surveys how pathetic the condition of the tribals is in Telangana under the TRS regime. BJP factions are making fun of the KCR for going out of their way to overthrow the BJP government. They say that KCR did nothing but boast about himself and his promises of which nothing is fulfilled. They say that the BJP is the only party that is silently showing “Sab ka Saath, Sab ka Vikas” while TRS keeps saying, “We will do it, do that”. The presidential election is an example of this.
The BJP is weak in the presidential election with only 48 percent votes. The strength of the opposition and regional parties is 51 percent. However, KCR and Mamata have made several attempts to give a big shock to the Modi government. Despite KCR’s rush to national politics, he took a step back after Mamata’s aggression. As KCR kept silent, she took a step forward and convened a meeting in Delhi to unite the non-BJP parties. Earlier, KCR had announced that a sensation was coming in the country and news came that the wheel was spinning during the presidential election. At the same time, he met several leaders, and the propaganda that he was doing something gained momentum. What will he do with the idea of a national party? All that was eagerly awaited. But nothing was done in that context, opposition parties unitedly fielded a candidate.
In this order, the big question that came up was who will Modi field in the ring on behalf of the NDA? All that was eagerly awaited. Draupadi Murmu, an exceptional tribal woman, was chosen. Political observers say the Modi master plan behind this choice is very strong. Because if KCR does not support the tribal leader, the BJP will have a chance to promote that it is against the tribals. Otherwise, if you vote for the opposition candidate, then Congress is in it. The BJP’s allegation that the two parties are one seems to be strengthened. Analysts say that KCR is in such a situation where he is unable to digest the fact that BJP did this.
It is said that choosing Murmu as the Presidential candidate is a big shock to Mamata and the Opposition. Because the YCP and BJP are neutral on the issue of presidential elections. Now that Murmu is a woman from Odisha, the BJD must show support. CM Naveen Patnaik has already tweeted congratulating her. That means the BJD will definitely support the NDA candidate, analysts say. Analysts argue that even the numerically strong YCP votes are likely to go to the NDA candidate. Because of various reasons involving Jagan and Venkaiah Naidu, YCP is expected to soften and side with the NDA candidate. Analysts say that Modi’s sketch of hitting two birds with one stone has come as a big shock to KCR and other opposition parties.
