The recent series of interviews by BRS leader KT Rama Rao (KTR) has raised eyebrows due to his repeated mention of TDP President Chandrababu Naidu’s name. In one interview, KTR has made statements about a phone call from Nara Lokesh when he fell from a vehicle during the Armor election campaign. He emphasized the supposed friendship and concern displayed by Lokesh during that incident.
However, KTR’s comments have sparked speculation and skepticism. Some argue that KTR is strategically mentioning Lokesh’s name to repair the damage caused by his earlier loose talk about Chandrababu Naidu and his subsequent arrest. KTR’s efforts seem directed towards securing support from TDP voters and settlers in Telangana.
In response to KTR’s statement about receiving a call from Lokesh after his fall, questions have been raised about the authenticity of such claims. Some assert that KTR may be attempting to convey an unbreakable friendship with Lokesh to gain sympathy votes.
Critics point out that if Lokesh had genuinely called to inquire about KTR’s well-being, it reflects a minimum level of courtesy. However, they question the motive behind KTR publicly sharing such details.
Moreover, the scrutiny extends to the relationship between the KCR family and Chandrababu Naidu. Critics argue that if there was genuine respect and affection, the KCR family would have visited Lokesh when Chandrababu Naidu was operated on November 7 or when he came to Hyderabad on November 1 after being released from jail.
Overall, KTR’s handling of the situation and his statements in these interviews have drawn criticism, with some suggesting that his approach may have cost BRS party votes in various constituencies across Telangana. The upcoming elections will reveal the actual impact of these developments on the political landscape.
