Intense debate in BJP on support to TDP

Hyderabad: With the BJP party making strategies to make gains in the coming GHMC elections, leaders from Andhra Pradesh claim that a large number of Seemandhra population in and around Hyderabad had helped the TDP win from majority of the Assembly constituencies even after the bifurcation of the State and hence it would be in the larger interest of both the parties to have poll alliance.
But those who feel that the BJP should get rid of the baggage called TDP argue that the alliance had helped the yellow party and not the T-BJP. In the post bifurcation scenario, the TDP is fast losing its sheen in TS. They say that in spite of the alliance, the BJP could not win more than 5 seats and that TDP votes did not get transferred to the BJP. Hence severing ties with them will not create any problem.
They also argue that discontentment against the TRS government had already begun and this was the right moment to break away from the TDP. It may be mentioned here that BJP is scouting for leaders from Congress and YSRCP and also some leaders from TDP so that it can emerge as an alternative to the TRS in the next elections or at least fill the political vaccum and occupy the position of major opposition. In case of fractured mandate in the next general elections it may even consider joining TRS government, they feel. In any case it would be a win-win situation, they claim.
Senior leaders say that many TDP leaders like A Revanth Reddy, K Dayakar Reddy who have strong sangh parivar background are willing to cross over to BJP as they feel that they do not have political future for next decade if they continue in the TDP.According to this group, the Congress leaders who are 55 plus have come to the conclusion that they will not come to power for next ten years whether it be in TS or AP and hence are willing to come out of political hibernation so that the gen next would be benefitted.
