Karnataka will not impact BRS: KTR
Hyderabad: The Bharat Rashtra Samithi is not perturbed by the outcome of the results in the Karnataka elections, party’s working president and minister K.T. Rama Rao indicated. Both major players in Karnataka are direct rivals of the BRS in Telangana.
Posting on Twitter on Saturday after the BJP lost its southern bastion of Karnataka and the Congress registered an emphatic victory, Rama Rao said: “Just the way The Kerala Story failed to amuse people of Karnataka, similarly Karnataka election results will have NO bearing on Telangana. Thanks to the people of Karnataka for rejecting ugly and divisive politics (sic).”
Rama Rao also said: “Let Hyderabad and Bengaluru compete healthily for investments and creating infrastructure for the greater good of India. My best wishes to the new Congress Govt in Karnataka.”
The BRS, according to sources, had supported the JD(S) in the elections and had planned to help the party safeguard its legislators in the event of a hung Assembly.
