Prof. Nageswar cautioned about the clever politics that KCR plays and how he can offset any hurdles in his path by way of opponents. Referring to the speculated Telugu Desam Party (TDP)-Congress tie-up in Telangana, Nageswar said that TDP that had weakened in Telangana, might return with a bang, if clubs with Congress. The party is strong in some pockets like in Khammam and other border towns. It has some base among Backward Classes (BCs). Knowing about this, KCR has already put in place some BC welfare schemes.
