Hyderabad: After Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy's sister YS Sharmila hinted at forming a new party, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said Andhra specific political parties have no role in Telangana state politics.

"While anyone can launch a political party and has the freedom to operate anywhere in the country, I don't see even least electoral traction for the newly launched party of YS Rajasekhar Reddy's daughter Sharmilla in the near future," said K.Krishna Saagar Rao, Chief Spokesperson, BJP Telangana State.

He said that BJP is a national party with a specific regional agenda for Telangana State and exhaustive national agenda. "We don't consider any number of new parties in the state will impact our imminent rise in the state of Telangana," he said.

The BJP also alleged that there's a clear possibility that Telangana CM K Chandrashekar Rao and Andhra Pradesh CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy have sponsored this new party with pre-emptive political designs.

"BJP is confident that people of Telangana have already decided to vote against KCR's misgovernance. No such political gimmickry will save TRS from losing power in the next assembly elections," said BJP spokesperson.

The spokesperson noted that people of Telangana are clearly expressing their intent to vote BJP to power in their quest for development and good governance in the next assembly elections.

Meanwhile, YSRCP general secretary Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy said the party has no intention of expanding to other states. Chief Minister Y.S Jagan Mohan Reddy has categorically stated that the party will be confined to Andhra Pradesh and will maintain cordial relations with its neighbors, he said.

He acknowledged that the party had discussed expanding to other states but Jagan decided not to leave the state in the larger interests of the people. "There are many issues between the two states that need to be resolved by the governments and this would not be possible if we expand the party to the neighboring state," he added.
