Defections cause jitters for Naidu
The TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu is in jitters these days. Having lost the Assembly elections and finds no future for his son, the TDP chief is running from pillar to post at this age.
Backed truly by the media for his lies, the TDP chief holds protests and describes AP as violent under the leadership of chief minister Jaganmohan Reddy. Surprisingly, the CPI joins the TDP this time, leaving its long-time ideological ally (CPM) and cries foul of violence.
Chandrababu Naidu held protest at the DGP office last night taking objections to the incident reported from Macherla where a vehicle was damaged and TDP leaders Bonda Umamaheswara Rao and Buddha Venkanna escaped unhurt.
Naidu did not answer why the two leaders have gone to Macherla, all the way from Vijayawada, but cries foul of the attack on the vehicle. The TDP chief also did not say a word about the violence that took place and the damage caused to Macherla MLA Pinnelli Ramakrishna Reddy at Kakani last month by the TDP-sponsored protest.
The TDP chief and the media conveniently ignore the attacks on Pinnelli Ramakrishna Reddy or the chilli powder thrown at Bapatla MP Nadigam Suresh during the last three months of TDP-sponsored protest in the name of Amaravati. But, he cries foul of the protests by other parties.
All this shows that the TDP chief is in jitters not because there is political rivalry taking place and the rivals replying to what had happened to them in the TDP regime. He is more worried about the series of defections in the party with several top leaders, who have been the strong forces of the party for decades, are leaving him in the hour of crisis.
Former MLC S Satish Reddy, former MLA Kadiri Baburao, former minister P Ramasubba Reddy, besides others. In a few hours from now, the TDP would be losing yet another strong leader from Prakasam district, Karanam Balarama Krishan Murthy, who is joining the ruling YSR Congress.
The ageing haunting on one side and the leaders leaving him on the other, Chandrababu Naidu is losing his temper and going all out shifting the blame of the YSR Congress. However, it is to be seen how the people would take his criticism and his politics in the ongoing local body elections.
