Naidu desperate to prove his relevance

The political scenario in AP has been witnessing a tremendous transformation with two important political parties finding themselves at the crossroads and not knowing their next path.

The two parties are the Telugu Desam and Congress with the former finding itself in a tricky position stemming from its political insolvency while the latter has been a harassed victim of its political immaturity.

The two parities differ in their images as TDP is limited to AP while the Congress base is spread over the country, though its base is tattered in most of the states at the moment.

The question of political survival is of utmost importance for the leaders of both the parties. TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu has been struggling to find ways and means to show his relevance in the state politics while Congress chief Sonia Gandhi is on tenterhooks with her dominance in the national politics reaching the brink.

Chandrababu Naidu’s proposed 100-day Yatra across the state, likely to commence from Oct 2, 2012, to regain the lost confidence of the people must be considered in this backdrop. Chandrababu Naidu’s Yatra is aimed at awakening the people on the chronic power crisis and the deepening Krishna Ayacut water problem.
According to reports, Naidu wants to convey to the people that these problems are the result of the maladministration of the congress government and ask the people to throw it out from power in the next assembly elections.

Naidu also seems to have realized his mistake of depicting the YSRCP chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy as the villain for the state all these days. He has been reportedly planning to explain to the people the problems being faced by the people and his ideas on finding solutions to them.

Whether or not Naidu will succeed in his maneuvers to prove his relevance in the state politics at a time when the Jagan tidal wave is reaching the political shores with lightening speed is yet to be seen.

While this is the case with Naidu, we are yet to see a concrete plan of action from the Congress leadership to face the Jagan tsunami.
