After Jagga Reddy, Gandra Brothers, All Eyes On Notes For Votes Case

K. Chandrashekhar Rao - Sakshi Post

The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) led by party supremo K. Chandrashekhar Rao (KCR), is moving ahead towards early assembly elections, riding the confidence that popular opinion is in its favour. It is this confidence which is seen reflected in the announcement of 105 candidates, not to speak of deft moves to be on the right side of both the BJP and the AIMIM, a task no one had quite managed to achieve.

If party cadres on both sides of the fence are more than a bit embarrassed by this development, one can hardly blame them. Their single-minded objective appears to be to defeat the ruling TRS.

The big question being asked by political observers is--will Notes-For-Votes case come up next. If it does, the political climate in the states of Telangana and AP will heat up beyond all expectations.

This case has been hanging fire for more than three years now. Chandrababu Naidu must be a worried man on one count. He is treading cautiously and has avoided criticism of KCR and his family so far. Will that save him from the Damocles sword hanging on his head?
