TDP’s Chandrababu Naidu meets Amit Shah amid Andhra Pradesh alliance excitement

The TDP was a member of the National Democratic Alliance, which was led by the BJP, but it left the alliance in 2018 when Naidu was serving as the chief minister of the state.

On Thursday, the president of the Telugu Desam Party, N Chandrababu Naidu, met with the Union Home Minister, Amit Shah, and discussed the potential of allying with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the regional party for the Lok Sabha and Assembly elections that will take place simultaneously in Andhra Pradesh.

The TDP was a member of the National Democratic Alliance, which was led by the BJP, but it left the alliance in 2018 when Naidu was serving as the chief minister of the state.

According to insiders, BJP president J.P. Nadda was also present during the discussions. They also stated that both parties are open to the idea of working together, but a lot would depend on whether or not they can agree on seat-sharing that is mutually acceptable.

On the other hand, the fact that the two leaders have met for the second time in as many months has made such a possibility more promising.

Because the elections are drawing near, the leaders of the TDP have stated that any further delay in the establishment of an alliance would not be good. They believe that any lingering ambiguity would cause confusion among party workers and supporters.

As a member of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), the Jana Sena Party, which is led by actor Pawan Kalyan, has already joined forces with the TDP and has been encouraging the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to do the same.

In addition, Kalyan was present for the meeting with Shah. Earlier, Naidu had a meeting with leaders of the TDP, members of parliament included.

As senior leaders of the two parties held separate talks on Wednesday and dropped hints of such a possibility, the development comes amid mounting indications that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Biju Janata Dal, which is in power in Odisha, are on the approach of concluding their alliance. This comes as the BJP and the Biju Janata Dal are in the process of finalizing their alliance.

In February, Naidu had a meeting with Shah and J.P. Nadda, the president of the BJP. This meeting gave credence to the rumors that the two leaders were planning to ally, even though the situation had not yet been resolved.

The amount of seats that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would fight for in a state where it does not have a significant presence has been a source of contention between the two parties, according to sources.

With 25 seats in the Lok Sabha and 175 seats in the Assembly, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is eager to compete for eight to ten parliamentary seats in the state.

In the event of an agreement, however, sources inside the TDP have stated that the BJP may run for five to six seats in the Lok Sabha, while the Jana Sena may run for three seats and their party may run for the remaining seats.

One of the factors that has made things more difficult for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is the fact that Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy, who is also the president of the YSR Congress, has openly supported the agenda that the Modi government has been pursuing in Parliament and has a strong personal connection with the senior leaders of the BJP.

For some time now, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) has been striving to broaden the scope of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA) in the hopes of achieving a more significant victory in the Lok Sabha elections, which are anticipated to take place in April or May.

There is a consensus among members of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) that it would be beneficial to collaborate with regional parties that are positively inclined to its agenda. This is because the ruling party is planning to run for a third term under Modi and has established a goal of obtaining 370 seats on its own and 400 seats with allies.
