Chandrababu is cheating, his record in supporting people is not good

New Delhi: BJP did not get the expected success in the 2024 election battle. The party leadership had raised the slogan of '400 Paar' for the NDA this time. However, BJP got only 240 seats. In this way, BJP remained far from the majority figure in the 543-seat Lok Sabha. However, the NDA alliance was successful in getting a majority. Among the parties that played an important role in this, the name of TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu is very important. He has emerged as a 'kingmaker', because after BJP, TDP has emerged as the second largest party in the ruling NDA. It has won 16 seats in this election. JDU is at number three, which has got 12 seats. In this way, if we look at the equation of seats, then BJP will have to depend on Nitish Kumar's JDU along with TDP in the formation of the NDA government. Can Chandrababu Naidu be trusted in this political situation? If we look at the record, Naidu has been cheating before as well. Can BJP trust him completely this time?

'Kingmaker' Naidu also received an offer from India

There is a lot of discussion about Chandrababu Naidu in political circles. It is being said that he is also getting offers from the All India Alliance. However, the TDP chief announced that we are in the NDA and I am going to Delhi for a meeting. BJP must have breathed a sigh of relief with this announcement of Chandrababu Naidu. However, the truth is that Naidu had broken ties with the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in March 2018 itself over the granting of special state status to Andhra Pradesh. But the effect of his decision was seen in the 2019 assembly and Lok Sabha elections. He suffered a bad defeat in both the elections. Due to this, he went into the political background.

Apart from Nitish Kumar, who is the other kingmaker who will take away Modi's peace of mind? He has the majority but the obstacles are also not less

Left NDA in 2018 and returned in 2024

Exactly six years later, i.e. in March 2024, Chandrababu Naidu joined the NDA. He contested the assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh along with BJP and Janasena. Under the alliance, out of the total 175 assembly seats in the state, TDP contested 144, Janasena 21 and BJP 10 seats. Despite being in alliance with BJP in the state, Naidu took a different stand on the issue of Muslim reservation and advocated Muslim reservation. He openly said that we have been supporting four percent reservation for Muslims from the beginning and this will continue. However, in its manifesto, TDP distanced itself from this issue.

Keep praising PM Modi, but…

Even though Chandrababu Naidu has been seen praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi on every occasion after his return to NDA, his relations with Modi have not been good in the past. Naidu had opposed Modi after the Gujarat riots in 2002. Naidu also holds many records as the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh. He has been the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh for the longest time. He has held the post of Chief Minister for 13 years and 247 days in several tenures. Apart from this, he is the only leader of Andhra Pradesh who took over the reins of the state after Telangana was formed by separating from undivided Andhra.

All eyes on Naidu's next move

Chandrababu Naidu has been very influential not only in the state but also in national politics. He led the United Front during the 1996 and 1998 Lok Sabha elections. He was the convener of the United Front before supporting the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government in 1998. When Chandrababu Naidu joined the NDA, he was also its convener. His political journey started in the 1970s. He was also in the Youth Congress. Later he went to Andhra Pradesh's regional party Telugu Desam Party (TDP). Now in the new political situation, he has emerged as a kingmaker in the NDA government at the Center. It remains to be seen what his next step will be.
