The political dynamics in Andhra Pradesh are undergoing rapid shifts, with both the ruling YSR Congress party and the opposition Telugu Desam Party intensifying their lobbying efforts with the central government. Telugu Desam Party leader N. Chandrababu Naidu is expected to return from Delhi after reportedly striking a deal with the national leadership of the Bharatiya Janata Party for a potential alliance. Meanwhile, YSR Congress party president and Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is gearing up for a trip to Delhi on Thursday evening, where he plans to engage in extensive discussions with central leaders.
During his visit, Jagan is scheduled to meet with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday morning for a one-on-one discussion. While the official agenda revolves around state issues like additional funding and the fulfillment of promises made in the bifurcation act, it is clear that Jagan will also address political matters. This may include the implications of the TDP-BJP-Jana Sena Party alliance in Andhra Pradesh, as Jagan aims to ensure smooth sailing ahead of the upcoming elections.
Sources suggest that while efforts are underway to reintegrate previous NDA partners, Modi remains cautious about admitting Chandrababu Naidu into the fold. Consequently, Jagan seeks to capitalize on this situation by persuading Modi that aligning with the TDP could pose long-term risks.
