The BJP is playing a double game in the Telugu states. For the time being they want to go alone in Telangana and fight against the TRS. But they want to join hands with Babu in AP that is the TDP. The BJP actually wants to go all alone in the two states, but Babu is holding the hands of BJ very tight. Babu wants BJP with the TDP at any cost.
TRS supremo and CM K Chandrasekhar Rao ( KCR) had fired a salvo at BJP national president Amit Shah even before the latter completed his three-day tour in the State.
KCR raised objections to the claims of the BJP chief on Central assistance given to the TS government and even dared to quit his office if the claims were proved. He further claimed that the Central government had given to the State what was due for the State and nothing more had come.With facts and figures KCR proved that what Telangana paid was very much high than what the centre gave to Telangana.
KCR attacked and tore the BJP into pieces for Shah’s visit and the tricks that the party had played for political mileage including hosting of lunch for the Dalits. By targeting Shah, the TS Chief Minister had won the hearts of the people both in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh as well.
AP Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu had extended an olive branch to Shah. Interestingly, Naidu who was in Hyderabad attending the TDP’s Telangana Mahanadu stayed back in the night only to accompany Shah to Andhra Pradesh .They traveled together in the same flight to AP.
Babu took the opportunity to meet Shah in the flight in Advance and spend more time. Though Naidu could have come back to Amaravati by a chartered flight in the night, his usual way of travel, he opted to stay back and accompany Shah to Andhra Pradesh, which did not go well with the leaders of both the TDP and the BJP.
On the other hand the BJP Chief Amit Shah had during his earlier meeting in Rajamahendravaram claimed that the Center had given more than ₹ 1.45 lakh crore to the State. He is set to make even greater claims in his party workers meeting..
But, Naidu, unlike KCR, is not prepared for a showdown with the BJP chief.Babu has clarified that the TS TDP should not disturb the BJP or criticise the BJP at any cost. But KCR on the other hand wants friendship with the BJP. The local BJP cadres is not interested in having a truck with TRS. They want to go all alone.
