Despite down-playing the reconstruction of Ram Mandir even in UP, but BJP is unable to shed its ‘pro-Hindus’ image and Mr. Amit Shah’s statements against Muslims (two FIRs already filed),yet again shows their intention to polarize these elections. So, now will BJP leaders carry that campaign into Andhra Pradesh and keep away Muslim voting for their party. Even though Mr. Modi win applause for his development propaganda and fear less attitude but once-in-a-while he also touches upon sensitive topics- like cow slaughter and is reluctant to ‘apologise’ for 2002 riots- and the cobra-past expose that demolition of Babri Mosque was (pre-planned and not spontaneous), forced Congress to brand it as ‘oldest communal party” and to draw minorities into its fold.
Now, TDP supremo Mr.Naidu should be a worried man since nearly 1 crore Muslims in the state, may not vote en-mass for TDP, for his alliance with saffron party and run towards YSRC in Seemandhra and Congress, TRS in Telangana. Despite knowing that tieing up with BJP would be a calculative risk for TDP, but he bit the bullet, since he hopes that Mr. Modi has all the chances of becoming the next Prime Minister.
With BJP unleashing his saffron agenda, day in day out- YSRCP leadership should be heaving a sigh of relief, since Mr. Modi has embraced Naidu and now Mr. Jagan would go all out to expose TDP anti-Muslim stance and increase their chances in 25-odd seats in Rayalaseema, where minority votes are in good numbers.
