BJP has started mind game against Chandrababu. Leaders of BJP are saying that Telugu Desam Party is sure to lose the next elections and their statements are being seen as a part of the mind game. A month ago BJP and TDP were allies. For four years TDP ministers worked in the central government while BJP ministers were part of the state government. However, Naidu suspected that Modi and Amit Shah are coming closer to YSRCP chief Jagan and with the central government not fulfilling the promises made at the time of state’s bifurcation, the TDP not only quit the central ministry but also pulled out of NDA.
Ever since pulling out of NDA, Chandrababu has been targetting Modi and the central government. As the chief minister he also observed hunger strike for 12 hours. Later he held dharma porata meeting in Tirupati to lash out at Modi government. Chandrababu is making efforts to organise similar meetings in all district headquarters. Thus Andhra Pradesh is witnessing open war between BJP and TDP. BJP leaders are also targetting the state government. They have begun the mind game to weaken the TDP among people.
Chandrababu met union minister and Amit Shah several times to demand delimitation of assembly constituencies. However, they did not respond. These efforts began when Venkaiah Naidu was the central minister. Naidu had strong suspicion that the Centre is not going for delimitation as this would not benefit YSRCP. That’s why he started the revolt. Chandrababu was also angry with the Centre for creating hurdles in the path of Polavaram project. BJP dealt a blow to Babu’s hopes of going to polls with the completion of Polavaram project.
Now BJP leaders are also saying that YSRCP image has improved while Chandrababu’s graph has come down. BJP leaders have gone to the extent of saying that YSRCP will win the coming elections. Their statements are being seen as part of the mind game. BJP legislature party leader Vishnu Kumar Raju has even said that Chandrababu will definitely lose the coming elections. To put psychological pressure on TDP leaders, he has also said that within 15 days he will demand CBI probe into Pattiseema project. BJP leaders plan to go to Delhi after Karnataka elections to demand CBI investigations into the irregularities in Pattiseema. Overall, it may be said that BJP has begun efforts to pressurise Chandrabau everywhere.
