Etala prepares the ground for a new political party
KARIMNAGAR: Ousted Minister Eatala Rajendar and his future action plan continue to be hotly debated statewide. The discussion revolves around whether his expulsion from Cabinet was a good sum, if he will leave the Legislature, if and when he is likely to float a political party and if he will join a National Party.
However, the impression is gaining ground since changing the cover photo of his Twitter account and the developments in Huzurabad, that Rajendar is on the verge of starting a political party.
In the new cover photo, he is in a green kanduva, with Telangana Talli and statues of martyrs on the right side while photos of Jyothirao Phule, Dr BR Ambedkar and Prof. a fist symbolizing the movement of the State also on the left on a blue, green and yellow background.
The photograph indicates that Rajendar is keen to have Backward Classes (BC), Scheduled Castes (SC) and Tribes (ST) in his party. Rajendar emerged as a strong leader of British Columbia with considerable sway over BCs, SCs, STs, employee and caste unions, and students.
On several occasions he has maintained that he has never aspired for a job or a position and at the same time gave indications that he will not tolerate anyone who undermines his self-esteem, a slogan on which he apparently sets the stage for his new party. . He is likely to announce it at a massive town hall meeting in the near future. To this end, and to gain political support, he met with key leaders of the BJP and Congress and disgruntled leaders of the TRS.
It is also learned that Rajendar is likely to resign from his post as MP during the public meeting.
As people bear the brunt of a deadly second wave of Covid-19, he has decided to wait until things return to normal.
Sensing this, TRS boss K. Chandrashekar Rao first handed over the responsibility of looking after the Huzurabad constituency party cadres to BC Welfare Minister Gangula Kamalakar. . However, when Rajendar attacked Kamalakar, the CM introduced convenience store T. Harish Rao into the politics of Huzurabad.
When the TRS began to focus on its supporters, Rajendar asked them to pretend to be with the TRS and subsequently openly support his party.
Political analysts point out that Rajendar is on the verge of making a Chandrasekhar Rao, who, after being denied a cabinet place by N. Chandrababu Naidu, had created the TRS.
If one were to go with the projections of good support from BC, SC, ST and student unions, Rajendar’s outfit could be a thorn for TRS and upset Chandrasekhar Rao’s applecart.
