In an unexpected turn of events, tremors pop up in TDP-BJP alliance in Seemandhra and the duo is likely to be heading for split. According to top sources in the know, TDP leaders are quite unhappy with the way BJP is fielding its “weak” candidates in Seemandhra which in turn “favours” YS Jagan Reddy. Senior TDP leaders on Wednesday expressed their deep dissent to their chief Chandra Babu Naidu over BJP affairs.They’re of the opinion that the alliance is no way in favour of “win-win” situation and may just end up helping Jagan bag few more seats in the region. Especially, BJP declaring Rajampet Lok Sabha seat to Daggubati Purandeswari, sister-in-law of Naidu, where she has minimum chances of winning has drawn flak from TDP leaders besides many more segments. Naidu’s bone of contention seems to be BJP’s decision to field Purandeswari.

With this a rebellion is brewing internally within TDP which may head towards break up in alliance. Ever since TDP stitched an alliance with BJP in Seemandhra earlier this month, there has been growing dissent in TDP over losing out important seats. Even senior most leader and former Home Minister Kodela Siva Prasad has to lose Narasaraopet Assembly ticket to BJP and forced him to move to Sattenapalli Assembly constituency. That’s not all. TDP is miffed with the intervention of Sangh Parivar and RSS in allotting tickets to BJP’s leaders.

As part of the pre-poll alliance, TDP offered 14 MLA seats, 4 Lok Sabha seats and two MLC seats to its partner BJP. Fact of the matter is that BJP has weak cadre and zero chances of winning seats in Seemandhra. TDP is now mulling over its options in Seemandhra. However, nothing has been finalized. BJP senior leaders are worried over Chandra Babu’s latest move. We hear that BJP leaders are holding back talks with Babu. On flip side, since even nominations schedule is finished in Telangana, TDP-BJP alliance may not have much affect in Telangana. Let’s wait and watch.
