Hyderabad: After the Assembly and Lok Sabha elections are over in the state, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu will campaign in other states against the BJP.

In recent times, Mr Naidu has taken keen interest in grouping regional parties against the BJP. He is very keen to ensure that Prime Minister Narendra Modi does not return to power.


TS CM K. Chandrasekhar Rao is expected to meet Chief Ministers and presidents of non-Congress and non-BJP.

Before the announcement of the Lok Sabha election schedule, Mr Naidu met several national and regional party leaders and wanted to form a front against the BJP. He also became a close friend of the Congress and its president Rahul Gandhi.

Former MP and AP government special representative at Delhi Kambhampati Rammohan Rao is coordinating Mr Naidu’s election campaign in other states and playing a key role in getting appointments for Mr Naidu to meet national and regional leaders. Mr Rao said, “Naidu will definitely campaign in other states after completion of the polls in AP.”

Speaking to this newspaper, he said Mr Naidu was likely to campaign in Tamil Nadu, West Bengal, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi. In Tamil Nadu, Mr Naidu will campaign for the DMK led by Mr M.K. Stalin. The DMK and the Congress have an alliance for the Lok Sabha elections in Tamil Nadu. In Maharashtra, Mr Naidu will campaign for the Nationalist Congress Party led by Mr Sharad Pawar who is in alliance with the Congress.

In West Bengal Mr Naidu will campaign for the Trinamul led by Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, who is contesting the elections by herself. In Delhi, Mr Naidu will campaign for the Aam Admi Party of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, where the last word on the alliance with the Congress has not been said. Both Ms Banerjee and Mr Kejriwal had campaigned with Mr Naidu in the AP elections.

In Karnataka, Mr Naidu will campaign for the Janata Dal (Secular) led by former prime minister H.D. Deve Gowda, a Congress ally who had campaigned for the TD in AP. In Uttar Pradesh, Mr Naidu is expected to campaign in support of the Samajwadi Party and BSP candidates. Interestingly, BSP chief Mayawati had campaigned for Mr Pawan Kalyan’s Jana Sena as part of their alliance.
