‘In the Name of the Father, Daughter’: Why Winning Nizamabad Matters to Telangana CM KCR, TRS

Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is preparing the ground for the 2023 assembly elections. Apart from addressing several public meetings in the first week of December, he is also overseeing several infrastructure projects across the state.

Nizamabad is one of the districts the CM wants to improve. In a recent meeting, the CM stressed that there is no dearth of funds for the development and beautification of Nizamabad.

The move assumes significance in the backdrop that Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Arvind Dharmapuri recently challenged poetry of mlc to contest against him.

CM’s daughter Kavita lost the seat from Dharmapuri in 2019. At that time not retaining the seat was seen as a major setback for the ruling party Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS).

barbs exchanged, house ransacked

Dharmapuri’s challenge came after a heated exchange of insults between the two leaders. Responding to a claim made by KCR that the BJP had tried to poach his daughter as well, Dharmapuri said the MLC was in touch with Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge as she felt neglected in her father’s party .

The MLC took serious objection to these remarks and said that his loyalty would always be with the TRS.

Meanwhile, Dharmapuri’s house was ransacked by goons, allegedly belonging to TRS. The MP criticized Kavitha for vandalizing his house and threatening his 70-year-old mother.

In response, she said that she would hit Dharmapuri with slippers in Nizamabad Chowrasta if he continued to make baseless allegations against her. The BJP MP later filed a petition against Kavitha in the Telangana High Court, demanding police action against her. Disposing of the petition, the judge expressed displeasure over the use of unparliamentary language by political leaders.
