Is Chandra Babu Naidu worried? Though various exit polls giving away different statistics Chandra babu Naidu denies that he is worried about them and says that TDP is positively confident enough that it will come to power.
TDP chief Chandra Babu Naidu met Congress president Rahul Gandhi twice and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi on Sunday evening, earlier he met former Uttar Pradesh chief ministers Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati. He also had a meeting with NCP chief Sharad Pawar, Aam Aadmi Party national convenor Arvind Kejriwal, CPI leader Sudhakar Reddy and Loktantrik Janata Dal leader Sharad Yadav. And is meeting Mamata today evening.
It seems that Mr. Naidu is putting his full efforts to unite all Opposition parties on the same page for an anti-BJP front ahead of the counting of votes on May 23.
Shiv Sena on Monday mocked the efforts of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister, TDP chief Mr. Chandra Babu Naidu to form a non-BJP government at the Centre.
The Republic-C Voter survey has predicted a win for TDP with 14 Lok Sabha seats followed by YSRCP with 11 Lok Sabha seats and zero seats for NDA and UPA, while the India Today Axis poll has given TDP Lok Sabha 4-6 seats and YSRCP Lok Sabha 18-20 seats.
However TDP chief seems to be confident over winning the elections and according to ANI, he said “I am 1000 per cent confident that TDP will win the elections. I don’t have even 0.1 per cent doubt; we are going to win.” “While undoubtedly TDP government will be formed in AP, we are confident that non-BJP parties will form a non-BJP government at the Centre,” said Mr Naidu.
“Why Chandrababu Naidu is exhausting himself without any reason? Hope his current excitement last till May 23. We wish him luck for the same,” the Shiv Sena said in an editorial in its mouthpiece Saamana. Also Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut said that “We need a strong opposition. We are about to form a government and we need a strong opposition. If he is trying to create a strong opposition, we welcome the move,”
The TDP was the first party to extend its support to the BJP in 2014 but walked out of the coalition in March last year over financial support and special category status for Andhra Pradesh.
