TDP-BJP alliance to create wonders in Seemandhra
The poll alliance between TDP and BJP is expected to create political wonders in the residual state of Andhra Pradesh, known as Seemandhra region. Here BJP is contesting on four out of total 25 Lok Sabha seats and 14 out of 175 Assembly seats, leaving the other seats for TDP.

Though BJP is weak organizationally in this region, it has cultivated lot of goodwill during the last three decades. This was evident in 1998, when the party had won two Lok Sabha seats on its own, the same number it had won in the Telangana region, where BJP is known of having wide organizational network. This result had prompted TDP president and the then chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu to come closer to BJP leaving his crucial position of United Front's Convenor.

Though the two parties are yet to start their poll campaign in the region, as presently nomination process is underway, a latest opinion poll by NDTV has established that the poll alliance will bring big rewards for both the parties.

The opinion poll shows that the two parties will get 15 of 25 Lok Sabha seats, which is more than half. This indicates they will be in a position to form the next government in the state, as the Assembly polls are also underway. This would be a shocking one for the YSR Congress Party, which is hoping to sweep the polls and form the next government.

Just two months ago, the February's opinion poll by the same TV channel showed that YS Jaganmohan Reddy will get 15 seats, leaving only nine for Chandrababu Naidu. This clearly establishes that the poll alliance between TDP and BJP is certainly altering political prospects of many parties.

BJP state president Dr K Haribabu is confident that once the poll campaign starts, the graph is likely to move upwards further. According to him, BJP's prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi's wave is at peak in this region, which would alter all other political considerations.
