during the trust vote.
Telugu Desam supremo N. Chandrababu Naidu disclosed this in an interview to this newspaper during his ongoing “mee kosam yatra”.
Mr Naidu said apart from joining hands with the Left in the next
elections, the TD had “in principle” decided to align with the BSP in
the state. Besides this, the United National Progressive Alliance will
project BSP chief Mayawati as its Prime Ministerial candidate in the
next General elections. Mr Naidu said it was the time for a woman
leader from the downtrodden sections to assume the highest office.
It would be on the lines of a “grand alliance” which comprises the
UNPA, the Left and the BSP at national level. Mr Naidu who camped at
Thukkuguda of Rangareddy district, the home town of TD’s former
second-in-command and chief of the newly-formed Nava Telangana Praja
Party, Mr T. Devender Goud, as part of his yatra divulged his future
course of action.
Though he kept his cards close to his chest about the separate
Telangana issue, Mr Naidu did not deny the reports on possible
electoral understanding between the TD and the TRS.
“We are not against Telangana. Our five-member committee has been
pursuing the issue. Very soon we will come out with a clear action plan
on it,” he said. Though the Left and the TD joined hands after the
India-US nuclear deal issue, the TRS is still maintaining distance with
the principal Opposition.
