BJP In Telangana To Joins Hands With AIMIM:- All the major political parties in Telangana are boasting confidence in forming the government, as the state is done its elections and exit polls are declared.
Given that Lagadapati's exit poll and various internal predictions of the leading parties indicating that no major party may get the complete majority and there's a possibility of hung, political parties are weighing various options.
The most sensational yet interesting development/speculation doing the rounds is that Bharatiya Janata Party in Telangana could join hands with Telangana Rashtra Samithi and AIMIM (All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen) to avoid Congress-Telugu Desam Party. Although AIMIM and BJP are dead-enemies, BJP leaders in Telangana are okay to go with AIMIM. Buzz is that even AIMIM is okay to befriend BJP for its friendship with KCR.
BJP leader Vishnu Vardhan Reddy has openly admitted in a debate that BJP is ready to take support from AIMIM as well. He claimed that BJP would emerge as the third major force in Telangana and government can't be formed in Telangana without its support. He even reasoned that how BJP had an alliance (unnatural alliance) with PDP (People's Democratic Party), a separatist party that allegedly is biased towards Pakistan) in Jammu and Kashmir.
Vishnu also said that if TDP and Congress could join hands, why not BJP and AIMIM could. A section of BJP leaders in private is expressing that they are ready to join with AIMIM as any political party could correct themselves.
One cannot quash Vishnu's statement as even AIMIM had earlier given indications that it is okay if a coalition government really needs the support of BJP.
The moot question is whether the right-wing ideologue Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh would give its consent.
