HYDERABAD: After successfully derailing the plans of the Congress Party to forge a ‘grand alliance’ with other opposition parties in the run up to the next general polls with its strategic move to woo TDP to its side, the ruling party appears to be now taking steps to make Telangana Joint Action Committee chairman M Kodandaram lose BJP’s support and project him as the supporter of the Congress.

In what could be seen as a tactical political step taken by the ruling establishment, the government has given permission to the BJP’s frontal organisation, Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM), to hold Nirudyoga Samara Bheri at Saroornagar Indoor Stadium here on Sunday (November 26), that too on the same unemployment issue which Kodandaram wanted to highlight by holding Koluvula Kai Kotlata on November 30 at the same venue.

The State government’s decision to deny permission to the TJAC to hold Koluvula Kai Kotlata on November 30 citing Global Entrepreneurs Summit (GES) and other law & order issues, and granting permission to BJP’s meeting at the same Saroornagar Stadium on Nov 26 has raised the TJAC leaders’ eyebrows. Many in the TJAC feel that this is an indication to the ‘growing friendship’ between the ruling TRS and the saffron party.

The TJAC leaders, who are unhappy over the way the State government granted permission to the BJYM’s public meeting on the same unemployment issue, which the TJAC wanted to highlight, further felt that the State government was doing this so as to move  the saffron party away from Kodandaram.“TJAC has been seeking government’s permission to hold a public meeting on unemployment issue in Hyderabad for past four months. Surprisingly, the Hyderabad police gave their nod to the BJYM’s public meeting on the same issue, though the BJYM leaders approached the police just a few days ago,” a TJAC leader commented.
