Bellary: The Badavara, Shramikara, Raithara Congress (BSR Congress) founded by former health minister Sreeramulu has said that it would have political parties ruling a ‘common man Republic’ not a ‘VIP Republic`.

In its manifesto for the Assembly Elections on May 05, the BSR Congress Party described the national parties in the country as ‘VIP Republic’ because of the “high-handedness” and “the kind of regime followed by their leaders”, reported a daily.

The BSR Congress manifesto censures most of the national parties for indulging in ‘dynastic politics’. Notably, a number of relatives of Sreeramulu are the members of the party. How can it forget J Shanta, the sister of Sreeramulu, or nephew MLA Suresh Babu and another relative MP Sanna Fakirappa.
If G Janardhan Reddy’s brother, Member of Legislative Assembly Somashekar Reddy, too joins in, it will only fortify dynastic politics within the BSR Congress Party.
