Till recently Cong and for that matter any other political party never dared to act against KCR and his party TRS. However after KCR’s month long stay in Delhi, equations seem to have changed. While KCR started boasting of signals from Sonia and Cong High Command, Cong stepped the steam and with Ghulam Nabi Azad and Home Minister Shinde cut all the signals saying formation of Telangana is extremely difficult. Though KCR inspite of all these negative signals maintained calm and did not stop talking about telananga announcement by Dasara, his party cadre did voice token protest.
While T MPs from Cong like Keshava Rao and others went hammer and tongs, APCC chief Botsa Satyanarayana who till recently questioned all what was wrong with telugu people having two states, changed tack and unearthed TRS signed 2004 agreement with Cong. The agreement signed by the then no 2 in TRS, Ale Narendra agreeing for second SRC on Telangana.
Many feel Cong High Command don’t want to get into trouble creating Telangana as it opens a Pandora box across the country. So it unearthed KCR and his party’s 2004 alliance agreement during which they agreed for second SRC. Many feel this was the reason why KCR is maintaining silence. Botsa took class to KK not to go hammer and tongs on Azad as he only said formation of telangana is quite difficult. Now it has to be seen whether second SRC will include only telangana or other regions of the country craving for separate states.
In the meantime while KCR is not opening his mouth on Cong high command, his party leaders are venting their ire locally.
