KCR invokes Tamil Model of Politics calling parties not to be slaves to Delhi
K Chandrasekhar Rao urged the people of the state to not become slaves of parties dictated from Delhi, and called for emulating Tamil Nadu for their self-respect. Notwithstanding such a rhetoric KCR has not said anything on the centre despite state having a long list of unfulfilled demands. KCR’s talk is merely an attempt to rouse emotive issues on the eve of elections.
Though the Telangana sentiment catapulted him to power in 2014, the 2019 mandate would be on the performance of his government against the expectations he roused. As he is pitted against the national party congress , KCR attempts to fuel regional identity by invoking Tamil Nadu model. But, the emergence of TRS and socio-political idiom of Telangana have nothing to do with the Dravidian political legacy superimposed by the filmy glamour of Tamil Nadu politics.
