With the Etela Rajender episode, the Telangana politics took a big turn. After getting dropped from the cabinet, Etela resigned from his MLA post and joined hands with BJP. TRS wanted to fill the vacuum left by Etela’s exit who belongs to the BC community by a suitable candidate and sensing this shortage, TRS chief KCR persuaded TDP chief L Ramana to join TRS.
Ramana joined TRS on Monday in the presence of the TRS Working President KTR and inside sources revealed that Ramana was offered MLC seat and if there is any possibility, KCR might give him Huzurabad by-election ticket. But there is more than that meets the eye.
KCR as an expert strategist has a master plan down his sleeves behind roping in Ramana. Apparently this is KCR’s ground work for his daughter Kalvakuntla Kavitha. In the 2023 Assembly elections, Kavitha targeted to contest as an MLA from Jagityal and she had her special focus on Jagityal in the 2018 Assembly elections too. She worked hard for Dr. Sanjay who defeated Congress strong leader Jeevan Reddy during these elections. Now Sanjay has announced that he is ready to sacrifice Jagityal constituency to Kavitha in 2023 Assembly polls, if she required.
From Jagityal, Ramana contested a couple of times and he has strong base and following. KCR wants to utilise Ramana’s influence and experience for Kavitha’s victory at Jagityal in the next general elections. Though after making Kavitha as MLC, KCR wanted to induct her into the cabinet, Kavitha declined the offer and added that she would want to become minister as an elected MLA. So KCR has scripted a sound strategy for Kavitha and he will certainly ensure to execute his plan with perfection as he is well-known for such successful strategies.
