TDP To Win In Andhra Pradesh ?

TDP To Win In Andhra Pradesh ? The Telangana movement led to the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh into two states, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The state of Andhra Pradesh, with 42 MPs was left with only 25 MP’s to be sent to lower house of the Parliament. Apart from this, state was hit by several economic crisis, the most important being the loss of Capital city Hyderabad which led to the loss of important IT and pharma companies. The people of Andhra Pradesh thereby needed a leader who could harbor the state out of this economic crisis. The people of Andhra Pradesh were no where in mood to support the then UPA government because they felt that the Congress led UPA government was the reason for all the sufferings the state was facing. Thus, the state saw hope in the leadership of Narendra Modi and they unanimously supported Chandrababu Naidu’s TDP, then an ally of NDA, for both centre and state governance.

The party won 15 out of 25 Lok Sabha seats and along with it, Naidu’s TDP swept the 175 members Andhra Assembly by winning 107 seats. Before the election Naidu promised certain schemes for the people of Andhra Pradesh. Waiver of farmers’ crop loans, enhancing of old age pensions  from Rs 250 to Rs 1,000, waiver of loans taken by groups for the development of women and children in rural areas (DWCRA) were some of the schemes promised by Chandrababu Naidu’s TDP and along with it BJP, the then ally of TDP in Andhra Pradesh also promised 10 years special category status to Andhra Pradesh. However four years down the line when BJP government at the centre was unable to deliver on its promise of Special Status to the state of Andhra Pradesh, Chandrababu Naidu’s TDP walked out of alliance with BJP, at Centre as well state.
