Election heat has already started long ago in Telangana. And now the parties have turned up the heat even more. When KCR announced early elections, he was sure that he would be winning in these. But the Mahakutami effect was not foreseen by this leader. However, it too did not show much effect but some minor actions made it worth that. One such action has been taken by Konda Vishweshwar Reddy, resigning from TRS and joining Congress. Earlier with confidence, KCR never spoke of losing in the meetings. Talk at the rural Telangana changed due to these. And this news reaching KCR, made him talk of 'retirement from politics'. This exposes the weak links and defense mode by KCR. It is yet to know, what is on with KCR? As he failed in implementing the manifesto, KCR showed the sense of losing these elections. He did so in a campaign meeting and vowed to rest if he loses. This would be the last thing TRS party members would like to hear. But KCR going to defence mode so soon is not a good sign for its victory.
