The war between the ruling TRS and rival parties in Telangana is intensifying. At the same time, the distance between Raj Bhavan and Pragati Bhavan is increasing. The feud between the Governor and the Chief Minister is growing. In the wake of these developments, the real political scene in Telangana will be unveiled on the 28th of this month. The swearing-in ceremony of the new Chief Justice of the High Court, Justice Ujjal Bhuyan, will be held at 10.30 am today. But whether the chief minister will go to the event or not is now a matter of debate.
According to the protocol, Governor Tamilisai will be in-charge of the sworn-in event of the new Chief Justice of the High Court, Justice Ujjal Bhuyan, at Raj Bhavan on the 28th of this month at 10.30 am. According to the same protocol, the Chief Minister, Ministers of State, DGP, Chief Secretary, and other dignitaries should also attend the function. Will KCR go to that event again? Or is there a new debate going on now. At the same time, another program was fixed for the CM KCR. CM KCR will be attending the inaugural function of the second phase building of T-Hub.
Party sources said KTR would participate in the T-hub event. However, recently Minister KTR said on Twitter that it would be launched by CM KCR. This suggests that the chances of KCR staying away from the Raj Bhavan program are high. KCR was away on both occasions when Prime Minister Modi came to Telangana. It is very much known that CM KCR did not come to Raj Bhavan for almost ten months.
Since last year, there have been several disputes between Governor Tamilisai and CM KCR over various issues, leading to mutual criticism. Political sources say that ever since Governor Tamilisai kept the nomination of Padi Kaushik Reddy in pending, the distance between Raj Bhavan and Pragathi Bhavan has increased exponentially. With this, the CM did not go to the doors of Raj Bhavan for almost ten months. Ministers and TRS leaders have directly accused the governor of violating her jurisdiction and turning Raj Bhavan into a barrier to BJP activities.
The gap between the governor and the CM has widened further as the Republic Day celebrations on January 26 this year have been restricted to the Rajya Sabha only and ministers, including the CM, CS, and DGP have not been present. The government did not invite the governor on technical grounds that the assembly was not prorogued during the legislative budget meetings. Outraged, the governor openly criticized the government for not showing respect to the governor. The governor, on the other hand, reported the violation of protocol in the state to the Central Government. The complaints against TRS were sent to the Union Home Ministry regarding the corruption activities. TRS leaders have been sharply critical of the governor’s recent holding of a women’s durbar at the Raj Bhavan.
The controversy escalated when Minister KTR announced that he was happy to announce that the Chief Minister himself would inaugurate the new T-Hub building on June 28 in the face of all these adverse conditions. However, we have to wait and see if KCR will attend the swearing-in ceremony of the High Court’s new chief justice and put an end to the controversy.
