Amaravati: AP CM Chandra Babu Naidu, chief of TDP is facing tough times in the recent months. He got a shock when his brainchild TDP-Congress Praja Kutami in Telangana crashed to defeat in the assembly elections.
Chandra Babu is now playing the victim card painting Modi, Jagan and KCR as the villains out to crush Andhra people. He is trying to counter the huge anti incumbency with this victim card.
However till now most of the surveys predicted sweep to YSRCP and crushing defeat to Chandra Babu's CBN. He breathed easy when the C Voter survey predicted neck and neck race between TDP and YSRCP with TDP marginally ahead.
But even before he could celebrate, another survey predicted shock to CBN. India Today-CNX opinion poll ,conducted right after the announcement of election dates, predicted Modi to come to power with BJP expected to win around 238 wseats on its own and comfortably crossing the halfway mark with 285 seats with allies Shiv Sena, Akali Dal, AIADMK, JD (U), PMK and LJP.
