Dissolution of Telangana State Assembly by the C.M.-KCR is an unwarranted, futile exercise. Chandra Sekhar Rao in his wisdom might have thought in the bigger battle of Parliament Elections-2019, there are chances for national parties like the BJP and the Congress gaining support as the voters’ mood would be concentrated on their (the national parties) performance at the Centre and in the state.

When KCR was enjoying the full majority in the assembly and somehow won the confidence of people (according to him) by giving sops to different sections of people, why this hurry? People elect MLAs for a 5-year rule, unless otherwise they lose the trust of the House. To bring the term whimsically to an end only to gain votes and seats is in a way sabotaging the Constitutional provision of ‘Dissolution of the House’ that is granted to the state C.M.

Telangana is supposed to have elections along with the parliament elections in April or June 2019 as per the formation of the state being in June-2014.  KCR has been an votary of ‘one nation, one poll’ for a long time. This haste of advancing elections now, for political expediency would not go down well with the people. It does not augur well for a democracy. When the period of this assembly ends with that of the parliament in 2019, simultaneous elections is a better option and would not be a burden on the country’s exchequer.

Now the care-taker government of the TRS (Telangana Rastra Samithi) is a toothless tiger with no decision-making authority. The mandate of 9-months (advanced ones) are actually mandated to rule, which the party has lost. Now, the other parties may raise their heads and voice to demean TRS for its performance, among them Prof Kodandaram’s (orchestrator of Telangana state with his strategical moves) a new formation (TJS) is raising pertinent questions and finding fault with many of TRS-government policies. Even the state government employees whose pay revision is due are asking for interim relief and are agitating. They were all livid with TRS as it (the relief) was not declared before dissolution.

Moreover, TRS is a friend of AIMIM and has done much of appeasing of Muslim minorities in the state— a la’ Mamatha kind of politics in Bengal. It is time to highlight all those ill-practices. It’s not time for the BJP to make a bonhomie with the TRS for 2019- Central government formation. For, TRS is an opportunistic party and a turncoat. So, in the changing political equations, calculated steps are needed.  KT Rama Rao (KTR), the MLA- son of KCR and Kavitha, the-M.P. daughter of KCR are two big assets and weapons in the armoury of KCR. His nephew Harish Rao is also an equally capable leader.

All said and done, it is very difficult to break this formidable force of talented leaders. In apposition the BJP, should quite capably bring-in the new faces- new talents- new innovative schemes- into the fore in public in the Telangana state. Cine actor of repute could also fill the vacuum as South is known for its vanity industry coming to political field.

It is time for the BJP to grab the opportunity that has come in advance to establish their goals and credibility in the state by chalking out an effective plan instead of allowing the Congress, their opponent, to get the space for the dissenting voice. In a democracy there is place for independent parties to develop on their own rather than by piggybacking on regional parties.
