Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) working president KTR addressed “Meet The Press” programme organized by Hyderabad Press Club a day after he was appointed as TRS working president, by TRS President and TS CM KCR.
KTR predicted that the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) will become peripheral, both in Andhra Pradesh and national politics after general elections in 2019. The young leader believes that other regional parties in Andhra Pradesh might take center-stage and may have a bigger role to play in state and national politics.
KTR said, “TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu is trying to form a front at the national level because he wants to strengthen his own party while KCR’s proposed federal front is aimed at bringing a qualitative change in the country’s polity.”
On being asked if TRS will play a role in upcoming AP assembly polls, the TRS leader said, “We will definitely have a role in AP politics. In what form, you will see in due course. People of AP will decide who is best for them but we will also tell them who is right for them and who can safeguard their interests.”
Several reports have emerged saying TRS will support YSRCP in Andhra Pradesh elections because YSRCP backed TRS in recently held Telangana elections, but there is no confirmation from either of the parties regarding this. TRS’s support might be extended to actor turned politician Pawan Kalyan’s Jana Sena Party too. Upcoming assembly polls in Andhra Pradesh will definitely be a game-changer for TDP, as it failed to fulfill its promised manifesto to the people of Andhra.
