KCR, which seems to aspire in playing a key role in national politics, did not go to the meeting held by the opposition. Why did he miss the meeting set up by Mamata Banerjee regarding the selection of the Presidential candidate? What is KCR’s idea? What did strategist Prashant Kishore tell him? Amid the hot topic of selecting a Presidential candidate in order to stand against the BJP party, why didn’t KCR attend it? Political analysts are expressing many doubts and posing questions along these lines.
Mamata Banerjee, who plans to field a joint candidate from the opposition in the presidential election, has extended an invitation to 19 opposition parties across the country, including Congress president Sonia Gandhi. However, KCR did not attend the meeting. It is very well known that all KCR wants to do at this point is to turn the wheel in national politics across the country. In fact, this meeting is a great venue for him to start. But he did not go. In this context, the question arises as to what the is the actual agenda of KCR.
Prashanth Kishore is the only one who is cooperating with KCR in all possible ways in forming the National Party. He has been working for TRS in the state and has been busy paving the way for KCR’s political path at the central level as well. Similarly, KCR is reportedly planning to tie up a crucial post for Prashant Kishore in the new party he will form. The propaganda that KCR is going to use PK services in the capacity of the BRS National General Secretary or Secretary-General has gained momentum. Analysts, however, are skeptical of how KCR can succeed in national politics with just advice and suggestions from PK.
KCR has already held meetings with several intellectuals, popular celebrities, political and peasant leaders, and former IAS, and APS for the BRS to be set up as an alternative to the BJP and Congress. To this end, field conditions in the respective states across the country are being studied. Similarly, several regional parties, including the BJP, are meeting with non-Congress CMs. Analysts say that KCR is trying hard to aim to be politically active at the national level, and seems eager to forge good relations with non-Congress parties and no-BJP parties.
However, it is expected that it will not be a big workout. Because will the chief ministers and leaders of the regional parties who are not cooperating with the third alliance cooperate with the emerging national party under KCR? They say that is difficult. In the current political climate in the country, various regional parties’ support is coherently divided among the national parties like the BJP and the Congress. They are not strong enough to go separately and survive. The big question then is which party will move forward in favor of the KCR party. Criticisms abound of how KCR turns the wheel in national politics under these circumstances.
On the other hand, across the country, the Trinamool Congress and the Opposition parties such as AAP are moving strategically to emerge as a strong political force. They are taking steps to further weaken the Congress and recruit the entire congress in themselves if necessary. TMC in particular has taken a step forward in this regard. Didi, who is uniting the opposition parties as part of it, called on all progressive forces to unite during the presidential election. However, analysts say that KCR’s absence from the conference will be detrimental to his own political ambitions that he wants to unite multiple parties and foray boldly into national politics.
