Hyderabad, Sep 22: The unexpected talk of "retirement from politics" from Telangana CM KCR's nephew and Telangana Irrigation minister Harish Rao flapped a storm in Telangana political sphere on Saturday.
However, Harish made the statement while addressing a huge rally at Ibrahimpur village near Siddipet, which he had accepted.
And the villagers on Friday passed a decision stating that all of them would vote for him in the coming elections.
"I am overwhelmed by your affection and love. I don't need anything else. I feel like retiring from politics as I enjoy your support and love," he said in an emotional emphasis.
It is not known whether he had made the statement out of emotion (or) it was a figured statement. But political observers say it clearly indicates the boiling discontent in Harish over the way he was being confined by the family of TRS president.
Though he continued to remain trustworthy to KCR and has also been moving closely with his uncle, Harish is probably feeling suppressed by KCR's son K T Rama Rao and daughter Kavitha.
According to the information from political sources...... if the TRS gets more than 80 seats, KTR would take the entire party and the power under his control and even push KCR to the diversion.
It would mean the end of the road for Harish after the elections.
"Since Harish is a master planner and can exert his influence over several districts of northern parts of Telangana, he is being intact. But once the elections are over, KTR would not hesitate to push Harish out of the party, if necessary or make him a negligible character," sources said.
However, Harish is said to be having his own plans. If the TRS gets the bald minimum majority, he would not hesitate to divide the party and join hands with the challenges to avoid KTR from taking over the brakes.
"But if his plans do not work out, he would softly retire mark out from the party politics and wait for another five years," the sources informed.
