BJP Will Join Hands With TRS Post Polls: Jaipal Reddy

The former Union minister sees a "silent wave" and a "fairly massive undercurrent" in favour of the Congress

Former Union Minister and one of the most vocal Congress leader in Telangana, Jaipal Reddyhascategorically ruled himself out of the chief ministerial race saying he was on the wrong side of age and won't even fight the assembly elections.

He also alleged that there was "more than tacit" alliance between the ruling TRS and the BJP for the forthcoming Assembly elections. Though there is no pre-poll alliance, they would eventually join hands after the polls, he predicted. Reddy said, “there is a perfect understanding already between (Prime Minister Narendra) Modi and KCR".

The former Union minister sees a "silent wave" and a "fairly massive undercurrent" in favour of the Congress.

The Congress, Telugu Desam Party (TDP), Telangana Jana Samithi (TJS) and the Communist Party of India (CPI), have decided to forge an alliance for the December 7 elections and are currently engaged in seat-sharing talks.

On KCR calling Rahul Gandhi a "buffoon" along with a persistent attack on the Congress, Reddy said by using such strong words, the chief minister merely wants to sound confident, when he is not.

"I think KCR is getting nervous. I don't think he is very happy about his own decision to hasten the polls," Reddy said.

Asked if he was among the front-runners in the Congress to be a chief ministerial candidate in the state, 76-year-old Reddy said, "No, I am not a runner at all, forget about being a front-runner. I may have my image, but I am on the wrong side of my age. I appreciate my limitations, apart from my physical problems."

"I am confident the alliance led by the Congress party in Telangana will win the polls," he said, adding that there is a "tremendous" amount of anti-incumbency against the KCR-led government.

He claimed that KCR and his family had become "symbols of rampant corruption".

Reddy said in his "hard assessment", he expects the Congress on its own to get about 70 seats.
