Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu has asked his party workers and MPs to propagate that YSRCP, Pawan Kalyan and the BJP were hand in glove. He asked the party men to publicise this so that the minorities would vote the BJP.
The basic cause of Chandrababu’s rift with the BJP is said to be the BJP Government’s refusal to hike the number of MLA seats in Andhra Pradesh. This perception is quite strong among the people of the state. Chandrababu also wanted his party leaders to publicise that the BJP Government was all set to strike off cases against YS Jagan. During his teleconference with the party MPs, he said that a section of the PMO was favourably disposed towards YS Jagan.
However, it is known that some MPs are of the opinion that these cases do not stand the test of legal scrutiny and Jagan would come out unscathed. But, Babu reportedly is insisting that a publicity campaign be launched to build a perception that Jagan was bailed out by the BJP government.
