In the sensational poaching of BRS MLAs case, the Bharatiya Janata Party leadership seems to have turned the tables on the TRS government in Telagnana, at least for the time being.

The BRS government had constituted the Special Investigation Team (SIT) to probe the poaching of MLAs case, allegedly involving BJP leaders.The state BJP leaders had initially tried involving the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in this case, while opposing the SIT probe. Surprisingly, the BJP-led Union government has now brought the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in the picture.

BRS MLA Pilot Rohith Reddy is the key person in the poaching of MLAs case. It was on the basis of a complaint from Rohith Reddy that the Telangana government had constituted the SIT to probe this incident.

But, giving a shock to BRS president and Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, the Centre has brought ED into the picture. BRS leaders did not expect the ED to probe the poaching of MLAs case. The ED has issued notice to Rohith Reddy asking him to appear before them. But it did not indicate the trigger for the notice to Rohith Reddy.

BRS circles and Rohith Reddy know that the ED has given notice in connection with poaching of MLAs case. Yet, the ED had asked just for his bio data in the notice. However, ED officials questioned Rohit Reddy for around eight hours with focus on poaching of MLAs incident.  

KCR perhaps wanted to use the poaching case to target BJP at the national level. According to sources, KCR initially wanted to hold a media conference in Delhi to expose the BJP’s attempts to poaching MLAs of his party. He later dropped the idea when the case went to High Court and the matter became sub judice.

Taking advantage of the situation, the BJP leadership wants to target KCR by its counter attack. Hence, it has brought ED into the picture. From the beginning, the BJP has been alleging that the incident was a drama enacted by KCR.

The ED officials have asked Rohit Reddy to appear again on 27th December. Now what will be the next step of ED in this incident is creating interest in political circles.
