It is not all over for sitting BRS MLAs and candidates whose names have been announced. The CM, K. Chandrasekhar Rao, said that depending on the situation candidates might change and that this is not final list. This has rattled some who thought that they have crossed the river by getting the ticket.
The next few months are going to be crucial for many BRS candidates who have faced a backlash from within the party itself. It is already believed that there would be 5 to 6 changes in the list. The BRS chief, however, is confident that the party will be able to sort it out if there are issues in some places.
“We don’t have a big problem of dissidence. The fact that we are announcing 115 candidates at one go shows we don’t have the kind of problems seen in other parties,” he said.
Releasing the list of party candidates for the Assembly elections, KCR made it clear that the BRS will not tolerate anti-party activities.
KCR was replying to questions about some leaders being unhappy over the party’s choice.
