Already Rahul Gandhi has criticized him as back stabber in Nizamabad meeting and AICC President Sonia Gandhi clarified that TRS had no role in bringing Telangana. Both of these are very grave allegations and KCR is unable to answer.
The fight between Congress and TRS is very severe and who wins the election of Telanagana is anybody’s guess.
Chandrasekhara Rao has committed some mistakes, which he could not stand on the words what he had done during the Telangana agitation. Owing to that he has lost the reliability and confidence of the people drastically.
During the days of Telangan agitation at one time he had publicly said that he was ready to merge his TRS into Congress if the Telangana state was created before the end of the 15th Lok Sabha. Furthermore he met the AICC President Sonia Gandhi and Vice-President Rahul Gandhi along with his family members and offered his gratitude and thankfulness for keeping the words by the Congress party.
Then each and every one felt that KCR is merging his TRS with the Congress but what had taken place is known to nobody except himself and Sonia Gandhi. KCR had announced that at the will and pleasure of TRS cadre and leaders that he was not merging the TRS into the Congress and going to the polls alone but offered poll pact to the Congress on par with other political parties. Even at that time also the Congress had approached for a poll pact with TRS but it could not succeed. There was a gossip that KCR had demanded Chief Minister's position which was denied by the Congress.
One more thing that proves that KCR’s charisma has diminished is, he had earlier publicly told that if Telangana state was formed the first Chief Minister would be a Dalit. Now that slogan has been put in the dark and in the public meetings he is being heard asking why should he not be the Chief Minister?
The entire happenings have been erased his reliability among the people. In addition to that the KCR family (father, son KTR and daughter Kavita ) all are in fray. His nephew Harish is also contesting from Medak. So all these have become a criticisable punts to other parties as well as to voters. All these have made Chandrashekhar defensive and given chance to others.
To make up all of these now he has gone with an unusual or a big manifesto which is impracticable to fulfill. He wants to give 12% share in employment to Muslim minorities and Deputy Chief Minister's post to them. He also came out with an unbelievable promise like a double bed room house to everybody in a 120 yards space and bring one lakh acres of farm land under irrigation in every district.
Already the PCC President Ponnala Lakshmaiah has criticized that if TRS’s manifesto was to be fulfilled it needs crores of rupees.
TRS is strong in North Andhra districts of Telangana i.e. Warangal, Karimnagar, Nizamabad and Medak. The remaining six districts including Hyderabad and Ranga Reddy are weak. If TRS had a poll pact with the Congress it would have been easy for both of them and not to worry about the victory.
Though the Congress has grass root level cadre in all ten districts but it is not sure of success. The BJP-TDP poll pact is seriously trying to dent into TRS and Congress vote bank. YRS Congress party is also drawing crowds to Sharmila's meetings.
