Has TRS fallen for saffron party trick?
- TRS workers wary of poll rhetoric veering from devp talk to communal tirade
- “The BJP has been targeting the ruling party for aligning with MIM and if we counter BJP on religious lines, there is a risk of polarisation,” feel the pink party cadres and leaders
Hyderabad: Has the TRS fallen in the trap of BJP? The party activists believe so as the ruling party leaders have been targeting the BJP leaders alleging that the Saffron party leaders were trying to disturb the communal harmony.
The TRS leaders who talked about the development programmes of late have changed their rhetoric and the focus has been on communal politics. While the BJP leaders alleged that there is a TRS tie-up with the MIM, the TRS leaders have been alleging that the BJP leaders are trying to create communal tension in the city. Right from the TRS working president KT Rama Rao, the ministers, senior leaders, have been targeting the BJP on this issue.
The TRS working president during his road shows said that the Telangana BJP president Bandi Sanjay chose Bhagyalakshmi temple near Charminar only to create trouble in the Old City. He said that the BJP leaders always try to use Hindu Muslim politics instead of saying what they have done for the people.
However, the TRS leaders locally feel that the party has fallen in the trap of the BJP. A TRS leader said that the BJP leaders used Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao's comments of 'Hindugallu Bondugallu' to a large extent during the Lok Sabha elections in which the party had won four seats. "They have been targeting the party for aligning with MIM and if we counter BJP on religious lines, there is a risk of polarisation," opined the TRS leader.
The Telangana State Planning Board Vice Chairman B Vinod Kumar on Sunday alleged that the BJP was trying to create riots in Hyderabad. He said that to get some votes in GHMC the party was indulging in religious politics. If Prime Minister Modi was a real patriot, he should not sell off the public sector companies. It has to be seen how far the TRS party's rhetoric against the BJP would work in the Greater Hyderabad elections.
