How BRS is trading a risky political future in search for allies

The Bharat Rashtriya Party (BRS) has been trying to regain its lost ground in the state, and it has recently changed its stance on the BJP in order to do so. In the past, BRS has been critical of the BJP. However, the party has now realized that it needs to work with the BJP if it wants to win the next assembly elections in Telangana. 

The BJP is the second-largest party in the state, and it has a strong base of support among the Hindu community. BRS is hoping that by working with the BJP, it can tap into this base of support and win the next assembly elections. 

Earlier, the BRS looked at AIMIM as its ally and hence, always maintained a distance from the BJP. However, it has realised that lingering along with the Muslim minority. Is increasingly distancing the BRS from its dominant Hindu votebank in the state. 

Currently, the BRS is also looking for allies in other states. The strategy is that BRS is particularly interested in working. With the Congress party in states where the Congress is in the opposition. The party chief K. Chandrasekhar Rao believes that by working with the Congress, it can create. A broader anti-BJP alliance and win more seats in the next general elections.

The states where BRS is looking for allies include:

  • Andhra Pradesh
  • Karnataka
  • Maharashtra
  • Odisha
  • Tamil Nadu
  • West Bengal

The pink party from Telangana is also looking for allies in the northeast and north-east regions of India. The party believes that these regions are under-represented in the national political. Landscape, and it wants to help them to have a greater say in national affairs.

BRS’ strategy of working with the BJP and the Congress is a risky one. The party could alienate its core supporters by working with its traditional rivals. However, it now believes that it is the only way to win the next assembly elections in Telangana and the next general elections.

Only time will tell if BRS’ strategy, of dangling two swords above its head, will be successful. However, the party is clearly determined to regain its lost ground in Telangana and hopes. To garner goodwill and votes from the rest of India.
