BRS (Bharath Rastra Samithi) Party Offices In 4 States
As per the inputs from BRS leaders, although the party offices in Odisha and Karnataka have been finalized, the locations for those in Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra are yet to be decided.
It should be noted that KCR has been working to establish the party’s national presence since opening its first office outside of Telangana in Delhi in December of last year.
The party office in Karnataka will be inaugurated ahead of the Assembly elections there, which are scheduled for April or May of this year.
However, party insiders claim that KCR is not keen on contesting the state polls in that state and is instead focused on the Lok Sabha elections in 2024.
He plans to contest the Lok Sabha in alliance with the JDS and lend outside support to the party in the Assembly elections.
He met with former Karnataka CM H.D. Kumaraswamy in December last year to discuss this strategy.
Recently, former Odisha CM Giridhar Gamang and his son Shishir Gamang joined the BRS and identified a building for the BRS office in Bhubaneswar. The CM is expected to visit Odisha soon to inaugurate the office.
BRS AP unit president Thota Chandrashekar has submitted proposals to start the BRS office in Vijayawada in AP, and Maharashtra Endowments minister A. Indrakaran Reddy has been tasked with identifying suitable locations for the BRS office in Maharashtra.
With the Budget session of the Legislative Assembly ending on February 13, followed by the CM’s birthday celebrations on February 17, the party supremo is now focusing on expanding the BRS to other states with an eye on the 2024 Lok Sabha polls.
