Anantapur: The serious jolt for the Congress and TD alliance in Telangana Assembly polls has forced the leaders from Rayalaseema to rethink over the proposed alliance in AP Assembly polls.

The negative results in Telangana polls reportedly pointed out that people were against the unhealthy alliance between Congress and TD, but the TD supremo is reportedly firm on making a united front of anti BJP parties to strengthen the alliance in 2019 general polls for Lok Sabha.

The TD leadership is on a single point agenda of Special Category Status as the Congress party was clear about keeping the promise while the BJP led NDA government had ignored all poll promises.

A senior TD leader said that the issue of alliance may differ with AP State. "Here people are vexed with BJP led NDA for cheating people of AP in all aspects during the four and a half years and the proposed alliance with Congress may not show the negative impact it did in Telangana. For Telangana there was no strong point for opposition parties", he said.

Another leader predicted the alliance with Congress may be a repeat of Telanngana if people of AP do not accept the alliance between parties with different ideologies. In Telangana there was a fight between TRS and Congress led alliance but in AP therewould be a triangular fight in most of the segments as Jana Sena will show an impact on the results.

Sources said the Chief Minister Mr N. Chandrababu Naidu had a target against BJP that was jolted in three other states where the Congress was voted to power. "Our party chief was making successful steps to unite the anti-BJP parties across the country", I&PR minister Mr Kalava Srinivasulu said.

The APCC chief Mr N. Raghuveera Reddy said that the party cadres would obey any decision made by the party

High Command over alliances in 2019 general polls. He confidently said Mr Rahul Gandhi would become the Prime Minister and sign his first signature on papers according Special Category Status to AP.
