The AIMIM leaders Owaisi brothers and other elected leaders of the party have met with the chief and CM designate of TRS Sri KCR today. The way for today’s meeting was paved two days ago by KTR, Nayani and other leaders by meeting the MIM leaders.
There has been hot discussion in the political circles that MIM has been invited to join the TRS government and the present parlays are steps in deciding the modalities. KCR had announced during the elections that one deputy CM post would be given to muslim candidate in the future government. If MIM accepts TRS offer, that post would definitely be offered to the party, apart from two or three other ministries. As the number of ministries allowed is limited to 18, there may not be anything more on offer there. But the tie up would ensure that TRS or MIM will take lead on many local bodies too, denying either Congress or TDP any chance there. What would emerge under the scenario is a unipole government in Hyderabad and across the state.
Going by the signs, MIM is ready to take up the offer. Any objections it may cause might come from TRS disgruntled leaders who have been eyeing big posts themselves.This will be the first time for MIM to become part of the state government though they have supported Congress rule earlier from outside.
