In view of the current politics of AP, the election has become a matter of life and death for Chandrababu Naidu. TDP will get its former glory only if it comes to power in this election.
Chandrababu: Chandrababu is currently 74 years old. Chandrababu Naidu is saying that these are the last elections for him as the elections are going to be held in AP state in a few days. Chandrababu Naidu's lawyer recently told the court that Chandrababu Naidu is not very active in terms of health. He was arrested in the Skill Development Scam case.. He was an undertrial prisoner in Rajahmundry Central Jail for 50 days. The family members stated that then he faced various health problems. His lawyers repeatedly told the court the same thing regarding the grant of bail. Finally the court responded and granted him bail. Chandrababu Naidu did not come out for a few days after being granted bail. After that, the gopurams started rotating. It is in this background that they are not strong enough to come to power on their own in the upcoming assembly elections and have allied with the Jana Sena. After that efforts are being made to forge an alliance with the BJP. Chandrababu Naidu thinks that somehow he will come to power with those two parties. It seems that Chandrababu wants to make his son Lokesh the Chief Minister after serving as the Chief Minister for some time.
As mentioned earlier, Chandrababu is currently 74 years old. If he takes charge as the Chief Minister, he will reach 79 years by the time of completion of his tenure. It was not very good considering his health problems. He is suffering from diabetes along with skin disease. In that case he is not likely to work so actively at that age. Moreover, his lawyers at that time told the court that he also had heart related problems. So if you look at this health wise, political analysts are of the opinion that Chandrababu Naidu is not likely to work actively for two or three years.
In view of the current politics of AP, the election has become a matter of life and death for Chandrababu Naidu. TDP will get its former glory only if it comes to power in this election. Otherwise the party will have to face severe ups and downs. Moreover, TDP does not have a leader who can lead at the level of Chandrababu Naidu. Even the leaders of his own party are of the opinion that Lokesh has not yet reached political maturity. They say that his comments in a recent interview are proof of this. It is in the background of these developments that Chandrababu Naidu is planning to go to the polls with an alliance with the BJP and the Jana Sena. That is why Amit Shah is meeting Narendra Modi. Chandrababu Naidu Sardi is telling some leaders of TDP that it is necessary in view of the current situation even if it is not liked by them. Will Chandrababu Naidu get power this time in the background of all these kinds of alliances? Or will Jagan Mohan Reddy become the Chief Minister again? The questions will not be answered until the passage of time.
