Slow pace of the probe into assigned lands and the Covid 19 lockdown have given enough time for Etela Rajendra to recalibrate his strategy vis-a-vis KCR. On Tuesday evening, he went over to CLP leader Bhatti Vikramarka and discussed politics for over 40 minutes.
Though Etela claimed that he had met Bhatti due to old acquaintance, those in the know say that Etela is now exploring all possibilities, especially in the wake of his stand-off with KCR. Etela claimed that he knew Bhatti Vikramarka for over 20 years and added that they discussed the corona situation prevailing in the state. Sources also revealed that Etela had already met with senior BJP leader and party's national vice president DK Aruna. Similarly, he is said to have met former chairperson of the Telangana legislative council Swamy Goud.
Swamy Goud is currently in the BJP, but is said to be none too happy with the goings on in the party. He is said to be looking for a better alternative. He may even join Etela if he floats a new political party. Sources said that Etela is meeting several other politicians these days.
