Hyderabad: TDP in Telangana is claiming that it will give a tough fight and even defeat CM KCR and the ruling TRS in the next elections. However giving shock to the T-TDP cadre, supremo Chandra Babu Naidu, made clear that he will not campaign in the state.
Inside talk is Chandra Babu is experiencing scares that if he campaigns for the party in Telangana, KCR may once again bring out the note for vote scam to trouble him. If that happens he will be forced to resign as the CM of Andhra Pradesh. This results in loss of power not only in Telangana but also in Andhra Pradesh.
Now T-TDP leadership and cadre are pinning their hopes on them to regain their lost glory. They are demanding Chandra Babu that to regain their lost glory, his son Lokesh or his daughter in law Brahmani should contest from Telangana.
They even came with the constituency for Lokesh They are demanding Lokesh to contest from Serlingampally. However Lokesh may not agree for it. Direct contest is sending shivers in Chandra Babu Naidu and so he nominated his son Lokesh as MLC and then made him as a Minister in Andhra Pradesh. When that was the case in AP, how can one expect Lokesh to contest from Telangana.
T-TDP leaders are hoping Brahmani contesting elections will give them the required Philip. However Chandra Babu may not agree even for that as he do not have any hopes on winning Telangana. That is the reason he is looking to forge an alliance with the Congress and may get content in contesting in 15-20 seats.
