KCR has been taking a dig at the Centre and the leading BJP from the past few months. He is uniting all the non-BJP forces on to a common platform named Federal Front. He is keen to focus on the national politics on a full fledged note after the Munugode bypoll in Telangana. Several leaders and parties that deferred with BJP have been in touch with KCR and BRS now. TRS is renamed as BRS after 21 years. TRS was launched for the seperate state of Telangana. TRS has been ruling the state ever since it was separated. As per the rules and the order of Election Symbols (Reservation and Allotment), BRS has to secure 6 percent of the total votes in the Lok Sabha elections or the Assembly elections in four states of the country apart from winning four Lok Sabha seats.
KTR and Harish Rao will take over the key responsibilities of Telangana after KCR shifts his focus towards the national politics. Munugode bypoll will take place on November 3rd.
