K Chandrasekhar Rao, aspiring for a national role ahead of the 2024 elections, launched the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS), a new version of his party, exactly at the recommended “auspicious time” of 1.19 pm today.
During a meeting of his party, Mr Rao declared that the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) is now the BRS. Hyderabadians celebrated by bursting crackers and splashing pink on the city.
It was conveyed to the Election Commission, which has certain rules for recognizing national parties.
In order to be considered a national party, the new party must have some presence in at least four states or have won six percent of the votes in any four states and four Lok Sabha seats. Alternatively, the party must win two percent of the Lok Sabha seats in at least three states.
In Telangana, which it rules, the TRS has a strong presence.
In 2024, KCR intends to challenge Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP. Over the past year, he has greatly escalated his rhetoric against the BJP, skipping PM Modi’s events and not even receiving him at the airport.
In the build-up to his re-launch, Mr. Rao, better known as KCR, met several political leaders, including his counterparts in other states – Mamata Banerjee (Bengal), Nitish Kumar (Bihar), Arvind Kejriwal (Delhi). ), MK Stalin (Tamil Nadu), Pinarayi Vijayan (Kerala) and Naveen Patnaik (Odisha).
Former Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy and DMK ally Thol Thirumavalavan attended the big launch party today.
But as part of a change in strategy, KCR approached farmer organizations and trade unions for an alliance that would reflect the aspirations of different sections of society.
KCR plans to address a rally on December 8, the day the then Congress government at the Center announced a separate Telangana state in 2009.
BRS may face its first election soon, but in Telangana – Munugode by-election is expected on November 4. The party is also likely to contest assembly elections in Gujarat, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Delhi.
The party wants to retain its election symbol of the car and its pink colour, but it is still a long way from officially becoming a national party.
KCR has told party leaders that he should visit various states to talk about the “highly successful” welfare schemes in Telangana in the last eight years to increase the party’s political influence.
