Telangana Rechristening: What prompted KCR for sudden renaming of party

Keeping the 'national' interest in view, KCR renames his party

This happens only in Telangana. KCR this fine morning woke up and moved to national stage with renaming of his party.

This is basically Vijayadashmi effect which prompted KCR to opt for doing something big.  And thus the new story in the news media came into existence. The big launch on Dussehra by KCR also witnessed the presence of the guests like former Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy along with DMK ally Thol Thirumavalavan.

KCR has changed the name plate on the wall of his residence which shows the new name of his party –Bharat Rashtra Samithi.

As per the declarance of Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi will now be known as Bharat Rashtra Samithi from today on.

The political experts find a national greed as a reason behind such a sudden political act of this kind.

The greed is also quite clear which shows the face of an aspiring KCR who is craving for a national role ahead of the 2024 election. His launching of the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) is a new version of his party. He says he was long awaiting the recommended “auspicious time” of Vijayadashami.

Now BRS turned TRS with its workers is celebrating the rechristening by splashing the party’s colour pink and bursting crackers in the city of Hyderabad.

The next formality has also been quickly done and the Election Commission has also been notified of the change in the name due to its rules for recognizing parties as national.

As per the EC rules, a party can only be a national entity when it has been recognized in at least four Indian states. Otherwise the party has to have won six per cent of the votes in any four states. One more option is available for a party to become a national one and in accordance with this provision it needs to win two per cent Lok Sabha seats (11 seats) in at least three states.
