The alliance between the ruling BRS and AIMIM parties in Jalpally municipality, Rangareddy district, is in trouble ahead of the proposed elections. Leaders from both sides are openly criticizing each other during government events, trying to take credit for development measures, which local people are not happy with. The recent brawl between BRS and AIMIM leaders during a government-sponsored program has further escalated tensions. The scuffle between the alliance leaders has become common during government events and on WhatsApp platforms.
There is also a recent controversy over the sanctioning of funds for the construction of the eidgah platform in Pahadi Shareef area, which resulted in a heated exchange of words on WhatsApp groups maintained by both sides. BRS leaders in Jalpally have vented their frustration on Minister for Education P. Sabitha Indra Reddy for giving prominence to AIMIM leaders over them to jeopardize their political career. They believe that they have worked hard to ensure the party’s presence in Jalpally, but their representations were ignored, giving the opposition councillors an upper hand.
The people of Jalpally are not happy with the political fallout and say that both parties have failed to deliver the promised development.
