It is learnt that TDP and Congress will be contesting separately in the upcoming elections. The other day AP CM Chandrababu Naidu met Congress president Rahul Gandhi and is said to have conveyed the message too.
This is mainly attributed to the result of Telangana elections. AP CM Naidu has been gathering support and uniting parties in the national level to counter the BJP. But as things did not work in the state level, Naidu is in thoughts to go alone in AP but with alliance in the national level.
The happenings in TDP is the other reason. Naidu is taking the feedback of party feelers and supporters about alliance with Congress. In this many opined that TDP and Congress combination is sending confusing signals to the people. So Naidu has made his mind to go solo in AP.
Right from the beginning, the AP Congress leaders are not convinced with the idea of joining hands TDP. Though they did not make any statement but have informed the party leadership. Even prominent leaders have no clue what is in the mind of Congress high command.
Summing up everything, unofficially, TDP and Congress are not going together in the elections.
