It seems, the days are getting extremely tough for TDP. After four of its MPs recently shifted to BJP, now more than two-thirds of the party MLAs are ready to do the same.
The news has been confirmed by the state in-charge of Andhra Pradesh and National Secretary of BJP, Sunil Deodhar. However, he refused to share the exact number but the reports are rife that about 16-17 MLAs of TDP, are soon to join the national party.
He further added that TDP Chief Chandrababu Naidu is facing serious charges of corruption and so the party leaders are anticipating no future for TDP and are so getting ready to isolate it.

Speaking to a popular news media, Deodhar said, “TDP is now a party with no future as Naidu’s misdeeds and acts of corruption had been exposed. From cash-for-vote scandal to various controversial government contracts awarded by his (TDP) government, Naidu seems neck-deep in corruption. That is the reason why most of the MLAs, even his close aides, are deserting the party.
If this turns true, then TDP will have to lose the position of the main opposition in the state which is expected to further worsen the position of the party and its chief Naidu. While TDP already lost its identity in Telangana, the party is on a verge of facing the same in AP too. is the the end of the party, that has a historical track record in the past? Let’s see.
