The Bharatiya Janata Party scored really big in Telangana, following its surprise win in the Dubbaka by-elections, and also its comparative majority in the GHMC elections, when compared to its results in the one before that. This has given the party a major boost in the Telugu states, which it is now trying to replicate in Andhra Pradesh as well.
The upcoming Tirupati by-elections are turning out to be a major contest for every major political party in AP, with each party trying its best to attract the attention of voters. The TDP has already started campaigning for the elections, and is in full preparations, trying its very best to make sure that it wins the elections and wins the trust of the people back.
On the other hand, BJP AP President Somu Veerraju is trying his best to attract the attention of the voters and is trying to sidetrack the TDP, like the Telangana BJP sidetracked the Congress party in Telangana. Somu is trying to win the appreciation of Modi-Shah duo by winning these elections, and with the support of YSRCP in AP, the BJP is said to be trying its very best to achieve victory in the upcoming elections.
Despite its efforts, many political analysts say that the chances of the BJP being able to replicate the victory in Telangana, in AP, is very slim, given that the voters in the Telugu states are not swayed by communal or religious statements. Analysts say that if the BJP has to win, since they have the support of the ruling YSRCP, electoral machines will have to be rigged.
