BJP’s Big Brother Role In TS Unpalatable To TTDP
Amaravati: Having sounded the early polls bugle, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu is caught in a tough position over the alliance with the BJP for the next elections. His party leaders from Telangana, who have met him in Amaravati on Tuesday, asked Naidu to sever ties with the BJP and allow the party to go it alone for the next elections. They complained against the big brother attitude of the BJP leaders in Telangana and wanted Naidu to take up the issue with the Central leadership of the party. They alleged that the BJP leaders in Telangana were ignoring the TDP and were giving indications of having no tie-up for the elections, treating the T TDP leaders as non-locals.
The TTDP leaders are planning to have their mini-mahanadu on May 24 and have invited Naidu to be the chief guest. The TTDP leaders have also briefed him about their activities in Telangana, particularly both inside and outside the Assembly as an Opposition party. When the leaders took to his notice the issue of their MLAs suspension from the TS Assembly and requested him to condemn it, Naidu is said to have kept mum. The TDP leaders have requested Naidu, as national president of the party, to speak about the policies of the TRS government in TS for which also Naidu reserved his comments.
When the TTDP leaders complained to him about the big brother attitude of the BJP in Telangana, Naidu is said to have told them that he would speak about it with the party senior leaders including Union Minister Bandaru Dattatreya and ensure that the relations between the two alliance partners are not strained.
