Jaganmohan Reddy has welcomed the exit polls because most of them predicted his party victory. CM Chandrababu Naidu opposed these predictions as most of them predicted his party defeat. What about KCR’s response? TRS boss is nowhere to be seen to gather support for his Federal Front. Chandrababu is figuring in national headlines every day but KCR is keeping a very low profile in the crucial hours before the counting day.
Analysts say that the exit polls have dealt a strong blow to KCR’s calculations that there will be hung parliament. All his dreams of playing a king-maker role are under a threat now. KCR is also facing an identity crisis in national politics. His hopes of uniting regional leaders are also lost because of Chandrababu who has already gained confidence of many regional strongmen. The only speculation now is whether the NDA will fall short of majority to give a chance to regional leaders like KCR to have a say in national politics.
