AP CM Chandrababu Naidu is going to address election rallies of Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in West Bengal today and tomorrow. Naidu has already campaigned in Karnataka. Regional allies are preferring Naidu’s presence in their electioneering considering the TDP’s strong stand against PM Modi and the BJP. Whereas they have many doubts on the true intentions of Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao and his Federal Front. With nobody inviting for election campaign, KCR apparently got busy with his so-called tour in Southern States to boost his Front.
Analysts say that KCR’s idea of unity among regional parties is very convincing but the problem is whether he can inspire confidence of the regional leaders or not. Chandrababu steadfastly maintained a pro-Congress stand though he didn’t openly support Rahul Gandhi’s candidature for the PM post. Naidu’s firm stance against Modi has also gone down well with regional leaders. KCR couldn’t get similar confidence because of his secret understanding with the BJP. Moreover, KCR met with Modi in the past which made other leaders suspicious of his Federal Front’s actual agenda.
