Will KCR’s overconfidence cost him?

Telangana chief minister, K Chandrasekhar Rao is known for his strong vocal capabilities. The senior leader never backs down from political challenges, earning himself a firebrand image.

KCR goes really strong when it comes to criticising the opposition parties in the state. Recently, the TRS think tank was severely criticised for making some harsh comments on the prime minister of India, Narendra Modi.

Moreover, he is known for exuding overconfidence in his speeches. Recently, KCR stated that TRS party will be winning in 106 MLA seats in the following elections. Well, it is a bit too early to reveal the numbers and boast about the party’s strength in the public. There is a good chance that this overconfidence may send wrong signals to the public.

Political pundits opine that 2019 Telangana elections may see some serious competition between TRS, Congress, and BJP. Both Congress and BJP are looking to pounce on every opportunity that comes their way and dethrone TRS.

Interestingly, there were rumors that TDP and TRS will be forming an alliance in Telangana. If this turns into reality, TRS cadre will be strengthened with the addition of TDP supporters. However, that looks like a long shot, only time will decide if the yellow and pink parties will join hands.
