Just two months after the Telangana assembly elections, attention has shifted to the upcoming Lok Sabha polls slated for April or May. KCR aims to rejuvenate BRS leaders’ spirits by performing well in the MP elections, while Congress seeks to capitalize on its momentum from the assembly polls to undercut BRS.
Congress senior Jagga Reddy revealed their strategy, dubbed the “Akarsh” model, aiming to welcome 20 BRS MLAs into the party for the MP polls. He conveyed to the media that these MLAs are prepared to switch allegiances pending Congress approval. Despite KCR’s efforts to retain them, Jagga Reddy is determined to bring them into the Congress fold.
While Jagga Reddy’s ambition is commendable, the feasibility of all 20 BRS MLAs switching to Congress simultaneously seems ambitious. Although BRS MP Venkatesh Netha and former deputy CM Rajaiah have already joined Congress, a mass defection of 20 MLAs would be unprecedented. Whether Congress can successfully execute this large-scale maneuver remains uncertain.
