Union Home Minister and Senior BJP leader Rajnath Singh’s visit to Andhra Pradesh soon after Cyclone Titli ravaged Srikakulam. His visit comes at a time when BJP is trying to make inroads in South India, especially into Andhra Pradesh.
While BJP has already sent its MP GVL Narasimha Rao to AP to increase its attack on TDP, the saffron party has lost brownie points as Rajnath Singh left the state without visiting Cyclone-affected areas. Had he visited and met victims affected by the Cyclone, it would have created, if not positive, a neutral wave for BJP in Andhra Pradesh.
This missed opportunity not only reflects a message that BJP wants to put all its forces against the TDP government but also is a testimony to the fact that it is ignorant about Andhra Pradesh. This has re-established that it is looking at Andhra Pradesh only for political gains and is not willing to support the state’s development.
Rajnath Singh at a meeting said “The Congress is taking its last breath. Chandrababu Naidu thinks he can keep it alive for a while by placing it on a ventilator. But the Congress is not going to survive,” Rajnath Singh asserted, indirectly referring to the TDPs efforts to tie-up with the Congress.
Whoever fell into its (Congress) trap have gone,” he remarked. However, Rajnath Singh or the BJP do not understand that it is the TDP that has had a stronghold in the state and not the saffron party. BJP should at least make amends to itself and its attitude towards Telugu states in 2019 elections. If not, it might lose the tiny voterbase it has.
