Even as the Prime Minister Narendra Modi reached out to the Andhra Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu and the ministers from both parties eventually resigned, it is now being said that BJP may already have a plan for the state of Andhra and how BJP is planning to extend is foothold there.
This comes as the Andhra BJP chief K Hari Babu said that scenario for the BJP in the state is not all that bad and worst case scenario is that the two parties contest elections separately.
He said that however the BJP will attempt to improve its position in Andhra Pradesh.
The TDP-BJP alliance was forged before the parliamentary and assembly elections in 2014. The coalition won 17 of 25 Lok Sabha seats and 106 of 175 assembly constituencies in the state.
It is now being understood that special status for Andhra suddenly picked up momentum ever since YS Jagan Mohan Reddy of the YSR Congress started an aggressive campaign on the issue.
The BJP’s presence in Andhra Pradesh is mostly concentrated in the coastal region which includes nine districts.
