The arrest of veteran politician Chandrababu Naidu has triggered a political storm in Andhra Pradesh just months before the elections, and today, Janasena’s president delivered an unexpected shock to Jagan and the YSRCP.
Although both Chandrababu and Pawan Kalyan had hinted at an alliance, the quick announcement took Jagan and the YSRCP top brass by surprise.
This announcement comes at a time when people are discussing vindictive politics everywhere.
YSRCP has been making arrests to weaken the TDP and was hoping that by putting Chandrababu in jail, it would undermine the opposition’s morale. Also, YSR Congress hoped TDP’s current condition will create a confusion to the leaders and cadre.
They even hoped some leaders would jump from TDP to YSR Congress losing hope.
However, this sudden alliance announcement has thrown a curveball. TDP ranks are charged right now.
Now, with this announcement, TDP under Lokesh’s leadership, along with Janasena’s Pawan Kalyan, is is set to create a massive negative impact on Jagan’s strategy of arrests.
