See how he is managing two arch ideological rivals. He is pally with both the MIM and the BJP at the same time. He is making the BJP national team okay his proposals through deft diplomacy. The latest instance is that of getting Centre’s nod for zonal system. This shows how obliging PM MOdi is towards KCR.
While Modi wants to come back to power in 2019, KCR wants to retain Telangana. Though local BJp unit is at loggerheads, KCR is trying to keep Modi in good humour. Modi, who does not have time for Chandrababu Naidu, has given over one hour for KCR.
Meanwhile, KCR is also trying to enter into political understanding with Majlis as it is powerful in Warangal, Nizamabad and Karimnagar, besides Hyderabad. MIM’s Akbaruddin Owaisi is raising KCR to sky heights by his praise. KCR wants MIM’s support especially in Nizamabad, where he is on a sticky wicket due to anti-incumbency and possible defection by DS.
So, KCR is successfully managing two arch rivals. In effect, he has shown that he can ride two boats at the same time.
