The Telangana Chief Minister, K. Chandrashekar Rao, has recently changed the name of his party from Telangana Rashtra Samithi to Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) and has been holding meetings with leaders from various states.
This has led to speculation that he is preparing to create a third front in India’s upcoming 2024 Lok Sabha Elections.
The BRS has been recognized as a national party by the Election Commission, and KCR has been actively campaigning for the party, using the slogan “Abki Baar Kisan Sarkar” and emphasizing the need for policies related to economic, environmental, water, electricity, and women’s empowerment.
Political experts believe that the BRS could cause significant damage to the Congress Party in the elections, as it may attract voters considering alternative options to the BJP and Congress.
Also, active political experts say that KCR, like AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi, may work to cut votes for the BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.
However, it is not expected to impact the BJP’s vote bank significantly.
In addition, the involvement of leaders such as Nitish Kumar and Tejashwi Yadav, who have significant support among Yadav, Muslim, and OBC voters in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar, could also be a factor in the BRS’s potential success.
