What happened to TDP chief Chandrababu’s 40-year political experience? Who are his men? Has he failed to understand who are his loyalists? Chandrababu faced criticism from his own party leaders that drunk on power he gave posts to inefficient persons. Whatever post Chandrababu gives, he does it only after looking at the benefit he will get from it. As the leaders who once enjoyed power are now leaving Chandrababu one by one, critics are taunting Chandrababu that his abilities and leadership stand exposed.
This started with Rajya Sabha members. T G Venkatesh, Sujana Chowdary, C M Ramesh and G. Mohan Rao. Some of them had come to the party after defection and they left despite they were given Rajya Sabha posts. Some people say that all this happened with the knowledge of Chandrababu. But what happened to MLCs. Has Chandrababu’s decisions proved wrong? MLC Dokka Manikya Varaprasad quit TDP to join YSRCP. Since Dokka had defected to TDP, he was rewarded with MLC seat.
Potula Suneetha’s situation is same. Trusting her, Chandrababu sent her to Chirala. Since Potula Sunita had switched loyalties to TDP, it was thought Karnam Balram will be denied ticket. Karnam Balram was given MLC seat as he could not win the elections on few occasions. He was also given ticket from Chirala. Still Karnam Balram distanced from TDP. Since he is a senior leader, out of respect for him, Chandrababu had given him MLC seat.
Meanwhile, Adinarayan Reddy’s brother Shivanath Reddy also distanced himself from the party. In the latest development KE Prabhakar has resigned from TDP. Though there are many leaders in Kurnool, Chandrababu gave respect to KE family to make Prabhakar the MLC. Still KE Prabhakar resigned and left the party. Another MLC Shamantakamani is following the same path. It is significant to note that all of them are MLCs. Since they could not win the elections and hoping that they will remain loyal to the party, Chandrababu gave them MLC posts. That’s why there is an intense debate going on over Chandrababu’s decision in distribution of posts.
