Chandrababu Naidu has adopted double Standard on special status to the state. Although his party leaders quit minister posts from the union cabinet, the TDP Chief is yet to take a decision on snapping ties with BJP. The Telugu Desam is still an NDA partner.
The fresh political developments taking place after the two union ministers of the TDP bid adieu to their posts gave clear indication that Chandrababu wanted to sail with Congress and throw the blame on BJP on special status issue. Congress leader Sonia Gandhi's invitation to TDP to dinner hosted for all anti BJP forces on March 13 in New Delhi sent strong signal the AP CM is set to unfold another political drama for his political gains.
Chandrababu extolled Union Finance minister Arun Jaitley when the latter announced special package in the place of special status. After YSR Congress Party intensified fight and decided to move no confidence motion against BJP led NDA, Chandrababu changed his stance fearing the YSR Congress President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy will steal the thunder.
Serious doubts were raised on the TDP Chief's sincerity in pursuing the special status issue as his party was still part of NDA. He was also not clear whether he will move no confidence motion against the Centre or extend support to YS Jagan who already declared to move no trust motion against BJP government in Lok Sabha on March 21.
Chandrababu's reluctance in meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his stoic silence on injustice meted to Andhra in the union budget proved Chandrababu conspired to exploit the situation infavour of him. However, people are aware of Chandrababu's cheated politics!!
