At one point Harish Rao’s charisma and popularity was at par with that of CM KCR. Looks like this did not go well with a few people from TRS senior leadership team. Since few years, Harish Rao has been confined to back stage politics and has been refrained from press meets and popular politics.
Harish Rao is popular for mass and mob politics. He is considered very efficient in rural backdrop where overnight cadre gatherings are required. However it is suspected that, the TRS core team fears a political back stabbing with Harish’s ever growing personality. Due to these fears, Harish Rao has been confined to back stage politics.
With the elections just around the corner, it is important that TRS uses such impersonated weaponry like Harish. The need for this change is often being strengthened by open mass challenges coming from oppositions like Uttam Kumar Reddy and Revant Reddy. A few sections of TRS believe only Harish can silence such opponents owing to his mass style and modus-operandi.
