The Jubilee Hills MLA in Hyderabad recently attacked a party member over a flexi issue. However, this is not an isolated incident within the BRS party. Flexi wars are happening in many constituencies, where leaders are having conflicts with MLAs or incharges. These conflicts arise when the leaders’ pictures are not featured on the flexis, indicating divisions within the party.
In Amberpet, BRS leader Ekkala Kanna’s flexis include photos of Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao and Ministers KT Rama Rao and Talasani Srinivas Yadav, but not the sitting MLA Kaleru Venkatesh. Goshamahal faces a similar situation, where party leader Gaddam Srinivas Yadav’s Bonalu flexis show pictures of all other leaders except for previous candidate Prem Singh Rathod.
The LB Nagar constituency witnesses an open conflict between MLA D Sudheer Reddy and senior leader Rammohan Goud, evident through flexi displays. This flexi war is not limited to the city, as districts also experience open fights between party leaders. Patancheru is an example, where there is a feud between MLA G Mahipal Reddy and senior leader Neelam Madhu Mudiraj, leading to the removal of posters and banners.
The situation is further escalated by leaders projecting themselves as candidates for the next elections. Party leaders are now urging the high command to intervene and prevent divisions that could negatively impact their chances in the upcoming elections.
