Leader of separate Telangana movement and Chief Minister of the state K.K. Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR) may hand over the chief minister’s chair to his son KT Rama Rao (KTR). KTR is a minister in his father’s government, but his status is more than that of the Chief Minister.
He will be celebrating 45th birthday on 24 July and it is believed that he may get the CM’s chair from his father. This possibility is also increasing because work will start in the new secretariat building around it.
Actually, KCR considers astrology and vastu very much. His Vastu advisors had reported that he was not able to make his son CM due to “defects” in the old secretariat. After this the construction of the new secretariat began. On the other hand, KCR may have denied the transfer of power but political analysts And the leaders of his own party, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi, believe that sooner or later he will hand over the chair to the son. In fact, KCR’s attendance at public functions is declining due to ill health.
They feel that if they do not hand over the command of the party and power to the son in time, there may be a split in the party. According to highly placed sources in power and the party, KCR will hand over the chair to the son by the first or second week of July. However TRS general secretary and parliamentary party leader KK Keshav Rao reports rumors of a change of chief minister. However, state Congress acting president Revantha Reddy says that KCR is a very clever leader. His judgment is difficult to predict.
Worries over dispute between son and nephew
KCR’s nephew T Harish Rao is also a minister in his cabinet, but the dispute between the son and nephew about the power inside is also a matter of concern for the party chief. He had removed both his son and nephew from the cabinet after he came under attack from the opposition before the assembly elections. However, by making the son the acting president of the party, he had given the message that his successor would be KTR.
KTR also led the party’s campaign in the assembly elections. People associated with the family say that before this assembly election KCR himself had announced to hand over his inheritance to his son. In such a situation, it is believed that KCR will not delay much in handing over the political baton son.
