That KCR is inscrutable is well-known. No one knows what his next move is going to be. He sits silently in his farmhouse, but his mind furiously schemes and plans future moves. A day after he was sworn in, KCR has suddenly announced a major organizational decision by making his son KTR the working president of the party. This has come as a surprise for many even within the party.



But, what is KCR’s game-plan? It is clear that KCR wants to play a key role at the centre in the post 2019 scenario. KCR expects that there would be a hung Parliament with no party getting a clear majority. He feels the regional parties will become very important. So, his target is to win maximum number of MP seats from Telagnana so that TRS could emerge as a potent force in the political configurations after 2019 elections.

So, he is said to have prepared a succession plan – to make KCR is the chief minister and nephew Harish Rao the party’s working president. Thus, he would ensure that there is clear work division and no clash between the two parallel power centres in the party. But, what about daughter Kavitha Kalvakuntla? If KCR enters the national politics, what will be Kavitha’s position? Will she become a central minister?
