The politics between different groups among Brahmin associations got special focus ahead of general election in AP. It may be recalled retired IAS IYR Krishna Rao served as chairman of Andhra Pradesh Brahmin Welfare Corporation. He could not continue in the post for long as some Brahmin leaders opposed his style of functioning. Eventually, Vemuri Ananda Surya became the chairman and new leaders took over as members.
Ever since, Ananda Surya along with other Brahmin leaders are taking up novel programmes. Now they took joined the campaign of ‘Chandrababu again as CM’ being held all over the state. Flexis and posters are coming up everywhere with this slogan ‘You should come again’ addressing Naidu. Nos Brahmin leaders are visiting temples and offering prayers for the divine blessings for Naidu to come back again as CM.
This has led to increased differences among the Brahmin associations. Some of them are targetting Ananda Surya for taking away benefits only to pro-TDP activists. There is also pressure on Ananda Sury and pro-TDP leaders to shift their loyalties. It is well known Prashant Kishore has taken over as media adviser to Jagan. He is also using influence among Brahmin sections to favour YCP.
