Late YS Rajasekhara Reddy’s daughter, YS Sharmila called for a meeting of YSR Supporters at her Lotus Pond Residence in Hyderabad. “YSR’s Rule in Golden period for the farmers and people of the states. There is no Rajanna Rajyam in Telangana now. Rajanna Rajyam is possible only with us,” she said to her supporters hinting at the floating of a new political party.
Rumors are rife that the party will be called ‘YSR Telangana Party. The official announcement will come after the registration process is completed. There are reports of differences between Sharmila and her brother, AP CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. But the question is why a party in Telangana if she is upset with her brother.
Another argument is that YSRTP will be a B-Team of the YSR Congress Party. “The idea is to cut the Congress vote bank and prevent it from going towards BJP like how it happened in Dubbaka and GHMC Elections. This will help TRS in the coming elections,” some people say. Every argument makes sense on paper but it has to be seen if a new party can succeed to win the confidence of the people so easily.
