Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka, an esteemed Dalit leader within Telangana Congress, presently serves as the Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader and is widely recognized as one of the party’s most effective campaigners in the state. With three consecutive terms as the MLA from the Madhira Assembly constituency in 2009, 2014, and 2018, Vikramarka, at 63, stands as a formidable force in regional politics. His victory in the upcoming Telangana Assembly election would mark a historic achievement, making him the first leader from Madhira to hold the position for four consecutive terms.
Setting the stage for his political endeavors, Vikramarka initiated an early campaign with a 100-day padayatra in March 2023. Covering approximately 1,000 km across 750 villages in 15 districts, he shed light on the deficiencies of the ruling Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS). In an exclusive interview with Frontline, Vikramarka delves into the failures of the BRS government, articulates the Congress’ vision, and outlines the party’s commitment to challenging BRS’ “Dorala” (feudal) Telangana. He passionately contrasts this with the Congress’ promise to establish a “Prajala” (people’s) Telangana.
Vikramarka’s strategic and grassroots-level campaign approach has positioned him as a leader deeply connected with the concerns and aspirations of the people. His efforts resonate with a commitment to creating a Telangana that truly represents the interests and well-being of its citizens, distinguishing the Congress’ vision from the incumbent BRS government. As the election unfolds, Vikramarka remains a key figure in the political landscape, advocating for a transformative shift towards a more inclusive and people-centric Telangana.
