Telugu Party’s cadre has been scattered into bits and pieces by the ruling YSRCP over a period of time. Many TDP leaders defected to the YSR Congress Party and especially in Northern Andhra Pradesh, the YSRCP is targeting the leaders who did withstand Jagan’s storm in the 2019 general elections and are making TDP kneel down without any strength in their party.
In that process, Chandra Babu started to play defensively. When Naidu started making aggressive comments over the defected leaders the own party leaders reminded him that this style of politics has been started in AP by themselves. So, Naidu is very desperate to protect his leaders and the cadre in regions like Vizag, and in that order, he is making terrible mistakes as always.
Alerted by these recent developments, Chandrababu recently focused on the most crucial Visakhapatnam district. A former MLA from Yalamanchili recently left the Telugu Desam Party and joined the ranks of Jagan. At the same time, Rahman, in-charge of the Visakhapatnam party, did bid goodbye to Babu. Ganta is still unresponsive and no one has any idea what has been running in his mind these days.
In this context, Chandrababu, who thinks that the party’s reputation will deteriorate further, is giving priority to the former Minister AyyannaPathrudu out of desperation whom he earlier decided to put aside for his rebellion qualities. In fact, after the latter’s defeat in the last election, Babu did put Ayyanna aside. Babu did not care Ayyanna as he became paranoid in himself. But with the recent changes, the importance of him is increasing and this made Ayyanna show his rage these days.
This is such a crucial phase for CBN, probably these are fate defining moments for the existence of the TDP party and instead of encouraging youth and hard-working party followers, CBN is playing very defensively and giving importance to the not-so-loyal to protect the party from the disloyal people. He has committed bigger mistakes in the past but this may prove his very costly by time.
