Everyone knows TDP supremo Chandrababu Naidu is a keen strategist. Had it not been Telangana, he would have made optimum use of Cong weakness and by this time would have become CM of Andhra Pradesh. In the runup for 2014 assembly and Loksabha elections Babu struck chord by promising 100 party tickets to BCs thus igniting a discussion among various political parties. More recently he even went to Delhi to get the approval from various national parties on the issue. He is keen on reviving the dead Third Front to boost up his sagging political parties.
Babu’s maneuvors also found chord with state Cong leaders who feel that Babu would make better CM for AP as Cong has no chance of coming back to power. They in their private discussions feel that Babu won the hearts of BCs and even SC/STs in backward classes. They feel that Babu is a dynamic leader and AP will prosper under his leadership. Not only that Cong MPs Gutta Sukhender Reddy, Balaram Nayak, Komati Reddy Rajagopal Reddy met Babu in TDP office shocking all parties and political analysts.
Babu is making waves even though poll surveys predicted blank for him. Some Cong MPs feel that if TDP and Cong fight elections together, they will wipe out YSRCP of Jagan. However some say that in that case both will draw blank. However MPs are of the opinion that Babu is a fighter and even after so many set backs is fighting like a soldier with strong determination. They hail his moves of stemming the flow of BCs, SCs and STs towards YSR party.
