BJP once used to make waves across the nation thanks to its anti mandal stand on reservations coupled with Ram mandir issue. During that time the party with eye on future in Andhra Pradesh promised two states with one vote and made huge inroads both in seemandhra and telangana region in 1990s. It gained even appreciable vote share and many felt that had it continued with the same vigor, it could have become a powerful alternative to Cong and TDP. However political and power compulsions at Center forced it to enter into alliance with the then CM Chandra Babu and his party TDP.
From then on it was a down slide for the party which is looking to create its own identity.This time once again the party and its leader Kishan Reddy is going with great force on Telangana issue and organized a huge protest march where he along with his supporters stormed the house of PM Manmohan Singh. He says BJP will never make any more blunders by entering into alliance with any party atleast in the state. But one wonder how the future will be as in requirement of numbers for the formation of Govt at center, its central leadership may once again force decisions on state leadership which may prove detrimental for party growth in state politics.
