Telugu Desam Party supremo and Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu had once again admitted that he had tried for alliance with the Telangana Rastra Samithi first. However, he said that the TRS had refused his friendship and had aligned with the YSR Congress, which is unethical.
He made this statement at Tirupati during his meeting the other day. According to his own admission, he had tried for the alliance with the TRS first, before going to the Congress. If TRS had accepted his invitation, the TDP would have gone for elections with the TRS and not the Congress. This admission right in the temple town, exposes the opportunist politics of Chandrababu Naidu. Having tried and failed for alliance with the TRS, he is now blaming the TRS for its alliance with the YSR Congress.
Chandrababu Naidu is known for changing his stand to suit his politics. He was in alliance with the BJP till April this year. While sailing with the BJP, he branded the TRS and the YSR for having secret understanding with the Congress. Now that he is out of the BJP front and had joined the Congress alliance, he is now branding the TRS and the YSR Congress as secret friends of BJP.
Even before going for alliance with the Congress, he had tried for alliance with the TRS and claims it as good for Andhra Pradesh. But, if YSR Congress has alliance with the TRS, which not materialised yet, he says the alliance between the TRS and YSR Congress against the interests of Andhra Pradesh. According to him, whatever he does is good for the State and whatever others do is not good. He wants the people to believe him and support him.
This statement exposes how opportunistic Chandrababu Naidu is to win the elections. The Congress leaders in Telangana and now in Andhra Pradesh should hang themselves for having alliance with the TDP, particularly as Chandrababu Naidu himself admitted that he had tried for alliance with the TRS first. According to Chandrababu Naidu, the Congress was not his first choice for alliance. It was not the democratic compulsion as he claimed, but was his own political interest.
