The failure of the BRS in the telangana state elections is attributed to the party's overconfidence. The votes cast in the recently concluded assembly elections in telangana state are being counted and the results are being announced. In this, the congress party is leading in more seats than required for majority. KCR's ruling PRS party has suffered setbacks.
The BRS party, which won the two elections held since the formation of telangana state, was expected to win a hat-trick for the third time and form the government, but the party suffered setbacks and K. chandrasekhar Rao, who was seen as the unshakable power of the state, suffered setbacks in both the constituencies contested. The failure of the BRS party in the state is attributed to the party's overconfidence. Political watchers are comparing this with the last 2019 Andhra assembly election. The telugu desam party suffered a crushing defeat in andhra pradesh in that election. It is attributed to the overconfidence of the party. The same overconfidence is seen as the defeat of the PRS party in the 2023 telangana elections.
In both cases, overconfidence in the ruling party's victory, underestimation of opponents, corruption of own party leaders, malpractices, anarchy, loosening of the party's grip on the field are cited as many reasons. The ruling telugu Desam at that time underestimated the congress PARTY' target='_blank' title='ysr congress-Latest Updates, Photos, Videos are a click away, CLICK NOW'>ysr congress party. Now the BRS has underestimated the congress party. Such incidents may have led to unexpected results in both the elections.
Similar scenes happened during the 2019 andhra pradesh assembly elections. In that election there was competition between telugu Desam, bjp and ysr Congress. In the 2023 telangana elections, there was a three-way contest between PRS, bjp and Congress.
It is known that the telugu desam party, which came to power in the 2014 elections in a coalition between the bjp and the Jana Sena, later had disagreements with the bjp on issues including promises of secession and special status. Following this, telugu desam party leader Chandrababu has criticized prime minister Narendra Modi. telugu Desam lost the 2019 assembly elections due to many reasons like overconfidence, mistakes of Janmabhoomi Committees, gap among telugu desam party leaders. Whereas congress PARTY' target='_blank' title='ysr congress-Latest Updates, Photos, Videos are a click away, CLICK NOW'>ysr congress won 151 seats and set a record. The telugu nation's dream of regaining power has been shattered.
After achieving a separate telangana, the trs won both elections and formed the government. This time too the party was eager to capture the reins of power and achieve a hat-trick. Accordingly, kcr and ktr devised their own strategies. After the formation of telangana, the congress party was weakened in the state. BRS believes that victory will be easy as the main leaders of the party are not fully functioning. The party thought. However, revanth reddy, who defected from the then trs now PRS, made congress rule possible in Telangana.
Revanth reddy took the first step after several attempts to unite the congress leaders. They criticized kcr severely and tried to go to the public. At the same time, it can be said that revanth Reddy's padayatra caused some confusion in the kcr camp. However, the PRS, strong in telangana sentiment, were very confident that the congress party would not be able to do anything to them.
Revanth reddy strengthened the telangana congress by bravely facing the currency issue for votes and Padayatra, the consolidation of key leaders. At the same time, KCR's rift with bjp, harsh criticism of Modi, neglect of governor Tamilisai, belittling of revanth reddy and personal actions of trs leaders like Rajaiah have dealt a major blow to KCR's hat-trick ambition.
At one point Sharmila's padayatra was thought to split the congress vote by establishing a party named YSRDP, but her support for the congress at the end turned out to be crucial. His declaration of support to the congress rather than contesting the election to join the anti-PRS congress was sensational. Overall the strategy of congress and YSRDP led to the defeat of PRS.
