Jagan all the way: ‘Unifier’ Naidu suffers massive blow

Setbacks For Chief Ministers In Bifurcated Southern States


Telugu Desam Party (TDP), led by N Chandrababu Naidu, received a massive drubbing at the hands of Jagan Mohan Reddy’s YSRCP in the Lok Sabha elections in Andhra Pradesh.

In huge gains, YSRCP increased its tally from eight seats in 2014 to 22 this time. The TDP’s numbers, on the other hand, were reduced from 15 to merely three.

The electoral fight in the state was largely limited to the regional parties, with Congress and BJP losing deposits in all seats. The new entrant, Jana Sena of film actor Pawan Kalyan, too failed to impress.

BJP, which was in an alliance with TDP in 2014, had won two seats then. This time, the party drew a blank not only in the Lok Sabha, but also the state assembly.

This was the first time since 1983 that the TDP con-TDP president and outgoing chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu has been playing the role of a ‘unifier’, bringing non-BJP parties on a common platform at the national level. With just three seats in his kitty, he is unlikely to play a significant role at the Centre.

Jagan’s winning streak was not restricted to the Lok Sabha polls. His party delivered a resounding verdict in the state assembly elections too, bagging 150 of 175 seats.
