Later this year, states like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chattisgarh will be going to Assembly Pollsas per the schedule. Interestingly, there is indeed a big possibility that Telangana can also be in the list of it.
As per the latest updates, the Chief Minister of Telangana, K Chandrasekhar Rao is expected to announce regarding the dissolution of the Telangana Assembly. This will automatically imply early elections in the state and possibly an upper hand for the ruling TRS.There are indeed several important aspects which may play a pivotal role in promoting such a decision. First and foremost, TRS Chief Chandrasekhar Rao is not at all keen to have BJP and Congress going all guns if Lok Sabha and Vidhan Sabha Polls are held together.
It is not a question of insecurity rather a safety measure. 2014 witnessed a major sweep in the country with Modi wave. In all such cases, local issues are overlapped by national issues.The TRS Chief doesn’t want to take any chances and any Polarising factor in the state polls. The whole perspective of getting Muslim vote is also an agenda for TRS.
In no way they want to antagonize with Asaduddin Owaisi led All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Musilmeen (AIMIM). Thus a separate election will always safeguard the party against any political undercurrent due to any sort of polarization.Side by side, there is a popular belief in close quarters of Delhi that TRS is actually playing a dummy of Delhi. Thus it may be a possibility that TRS may not want to face a situation where they have to choose between BJP and AIMIM. In fact, it won’t be surprising if TRS decides to support Modi if Narendra Modi emerges victorious in 2019 Lok Sabha Election.
As of now, TRS is comfortably placed in the state and even if there is any imminent election, TRS is expected to win. Both Congress and BJP have interests with Telangana from both national and state perspectives. Thus the next few months are going to be very vital for the state.
