Chandrababu Naidu in Bengaluru to discuss post-poll plans with Deve Gowda, Kumaraswamy


Daijiworld Media Network - Bengaluru

Bengaluru, May 21: TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu arrived here late on Tuesday May 21 night to meet JD(S) supremo H D Deve Gowda to discuss the post-poll scenario in case the Lok Sabha results on May 23 spring up a hung parliament despite exit polls giving the NDA a clear majority.

According to sources, the Andhra Pradesh chief minister will also meet Karnataka chief minister H D Kumaraswamy, to discuss options in case of a hung verdict.

While majority of exit polls predict Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s return to power, Naidu is leaving no stone unturned in uniting opposition parties against the BJP.

Naidu's visit to Bengaluru comes on a day that saw the JD(S) and Congress alliance in the state further weakening with Congress MLA Roshan Baig asking Muslims to support BJP in case the exit polls come true, and even alleging that Congress state in-charge K C Venugopal was not allowing chief minister Kumaraswamy to function properly. He was later sent a show-cause notice by the Congress.

Earlier in the day, Naidu was part of the delegation of opposition party leaders that met the Election Commission to urge increased tallying of VVPAT slips with EVMs amid allegations of EVM 'tampering'. The opposition leaders also held a meeting to discuss the post-poll scenario. Interestingly, Kumaraswamy too was scheduled to leave for Delhi to take part in the meeting and be part of the delegation, but cancelled his plans at the last minute.

Naidu held a meeting with his West Bengal counterpart, Mamata Banerjee, at her Kolkata residence on Monday May 20.

Naidu has already held meetings with Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi, Sharad Pawar and Sitaram Yechury, and has also met Loktantrik Janata Dal leader Sharad Yadav in New Delhi, SP chief Akhilesh Yadav and BSP supremo Mayawati in Lucknow.

Since the time he pulled out of the BJP-led NDA last year over the issue of special category status to Andhra Pradesh, Naidu has held talks with various non-BJP parties in order to bring them together in an coalition headed by the Congress.

    Excellent Theatrics by Chandra Babu Naidu
    He knows if the exit poll results come true on and after 23rd May 2019 there will not be any opposition meeting required to chose the PM Candidate .So as much as possible meetings ,Dramas ,Choosing the PM Candidate should be finished before 23rd May evening .May be today itself he will now go to Orissa to meet Naveen Patnaik and may be many many leaders .Please try to meet Sumalatha Madam also .Even one vote may be required to win the Confidence Vote

    Opposition still feels NDA will fall short, may have to take Navin patnaik, KCR, Jagan along..so they are making sure it doesnt happen..Satta bazar also giving BJP around 240 and NDA 275..opposition smells a chnace...Congress has dozens of SC lawyers who are already drawn up legal team, they are using some National media to spread lies n influence SC same like during karnataka election...they are spreading lies about EVM, EC and saying president is from BJP so on..once they are talking about largest party, another time largest group to be invited..its all part of the game, hope president SC sees karnataka situation and avoids repeat of the same..

    as per opposition logic, those who get least No. seat they will become CM or PM of this country. that is the reason Naidu met JDS leaders.

    Excellent Initiative being taken by Chandra Babu Naidu and the country will remain for ever gratefull to him to see through the dubious game plan of the paid media and attempts to tamper with EVM's to subvert the democratic process.

    He is the first leader of the NDA alliance to openly terminate the alliance with the NDA and he can take credit for the dwindling fortunes of MODI SARKAR as Modi's wings will be clipped very badly in these elections .

    With 282 seats that the BJP got in 2014, the losses that they will suffer in these elections clearly indicate a total loss of confidence and trust in his Govt. He should gracefully accept the peoples verdict and resign so that our country can make a new begginning after the total mess he has created in our country during his five years rule.
