Former IPS Officer RS Praveen Kumar Joins Bharat Rashtra Samithi

Hyderabad: Former IPS officer RS Praveen Kumar, who recently resigned as the Bahujana Samaj Party (BSP) Telangana state chief, has joined the Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) in the presence of Chief Minister KCR on March 18.

In his address to the media, RS Praveen Kumar expressed gratitude towards former CM K. Chandrashekar Rao and reiterated his commitment to Dalit-centric politics while affirming his decision to switch from BSP to BRS. This move came amidst criticism and split within BSP cadre following his announcement of BSP's participation in the General Elections 2024 in Telangana.

RS Praveen Kumar also extended support to KCR's daughter, MLC Kavitha, who was arrested in connection with a money laundering case, terming her innocent and a political victim of the BJP. However, his past tweets questioning BJP's delay in arresting Kavitha resurfaced, sparking debate over his political stance.

Despite an invitation from CM Revant Reddy to join the Congress government, RS Praveen Kumar chose to join BRS, urging his followers to trust his political journey and decisions.

RS Praveen Kumar's career trajectory has seen diverse phases, from serving as an IPS officer for 17 years to pursuing higher studies in the US. Upon his return, he served as the secretary of the Social Welfare Residential Educational Institutions Society (TSWEIR) and later took charge of the BSP as state president in August 2021, advocating for Dalits and Bahujans in the state.

However, controversies surrounding his tenure, including alleged cultural alienation of students and political maneuvering based on caste and religious lines, have raised questions about his political credibility and consistency.
