House of cards: TDP stares at imminent split as Chandrababu Naidu holidays abroad – The Financial Express

House of Cards
TDP Supremo Chandrababu Naidu. Split in TDP! After losing badly both in Lok Sabha and Andhra Pradesh Assembly elections held in April-May this year, Telegudesam Party supremo Chandrababu Naidu is facing a serious internal crisis in the party. According to the party sources, the party may be heading for a split as some leaders don’t see any future for them in a party which is not in power both at the Centre or the state. According to the party sources, the reason for resentment against the TDP leadership also stems from the fact that neither Chandrababu Naidu nor his son Nara Lokesh is willing to accept the moral responsibility for the party’s electoral loss. Some party leaders are also upset with Chandrababu Naidu as he was nursing national ambitions and was touring the country to meet opposition leaders to build support in favour of the Congress at a time when he was facing an imminent defeat in his own state. According to the sources, the party faces imminent split in the Rajya Sabha where it has 6 members. If this trend continues then the party may face split in Andhra Pradesh assembly as well that may even jeopardise ....


It is widely speculated in the political circles that up to four-to-five TDP Rajya Sabha members are in touch with the top BJP leadership. According to the anti-defection law, if two-third or more legislatures of a party decide to merge with or merge into another party then they will not face disqualification proceedings. According to this provision, the rebel TDP group will have to muster the support of at least 4 Rajya Sabha members of the party to join the BJP to avoid disqualification proceedings. TDP has six members in the Rajya Sabha, former minister of state YS Chowdary (Andhra Pradesh), CM Ramesh (Andhra Pradesh), Ravindra Kumar Kanakamedala (Andhra Pradesh), TG Venkatesh (Andhra Pradesh), Thota Lakshmi Seetharama (Andhra Pradesh) and Garikapati Mohan Rao (Telangana).
