Both TDP, BJP worried over possible benefits of poll alliance
The passage of Telangana Bill in the Parliament has led to creation of severe gulf between Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), who had earlier reached an understanding for poll alliance. Being the anti-Congress party in the state, the TDP is hesitating to go ahead with BJP due to reported match-fixing game between Congress and BJP in clearing Telangana Bill in the Parliament.

On the otherhand, BJP leaders from Telangana leaders fering for an alliance with TDP in view of TDP?s  attempts to stall the Telangana process in New Delhi. The TDP Chief and former Chief Minister N Chadnrababu Naidu, who was confident that BJP would stall process of Telangana, is now  highly disappointed over the BJP?s attitude in the Parliament on the Telangana Bill issue.

Even BJP cadre from Telanglana region are opposing alliance with TDP fearing that would dilute their strength in the region as TDP leaders played opportunistic role to obstruct Telangana process. On the otherhand, TDP leaders from Seemandhra region are now openly accusing BJP of having match-fixing with Congress in the Parliament. TDP leaders fearing that alliance with BJP would makes them to face heat from people of the region.

 TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu is said to be in a mood to wait for some time and study the mood of the people of both the regions before entering into poll alliance with BJP.

Chandrababu Naidu though did not commit that he would not have alliance with BJP in the ensuing elections but dropped enough hints that he would get into alliance with the saffron party only after studying the mood of the people.

?My next move will be in the interest of nation and Telugu people. I will go to people and after knowing their views and feelings I will decide on poll alliance. For me the first priority will be the people of the state and then politics,? he said.

Naidu, who was not happy with the BJP leadership on handling of the state bifurcation issue, has now decided to adopt wait and watch policy on alliance with BJP. ?All the calculations of Congress has gone wrong and it will be finished in the state in the ensuing polls,? he remarked.

Criticising the Centre for making empty promises, Naidu said that there was no clarity in the proposal made by the Centre especially on financial packages. ?How do you expect the new state to develop a capital like Hyderabad in a period of 10 years. The Centre has not even told that how much money it would be giving for creation of new capital,? he said.

He said that the Centre has given assurance to bear the new state?s deficit for only first financial year and it has not said anything about the future deficits. Similarly, there are issues of power, irrigation, education, employment and other major issues, regarding which the Centre has no clear plan, he said.
