The TDP Crisis Is Completely Exaggerated!
Former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu was incarcerated for what appears to be a case based on dubious evidence. Lokesh, his son, had to stop his Padayatra and is now camping in Delhi while he searches for a legal means to bring his father out, which is taking longer than anticipated. With Number 1 and Number 2 out of sight, some people are predicting a leadership crisis and are foretelling a major issue for the upcoming elections. However, political experts assert that the crisis is exaggerated. Before notification, Andhra Pradesh elections are six months away.
People throughout the state are aware that Chandrababu's imprisonment is nothing more than a political vendetta. This will result in only sympathy and ballots. Also, there is no indication that Chandrababu will remain in prison indefinitely. It is only a matter of time until he emerges. It could take one or two months. Unless he is imprisoned until the elections, there is no cause for concern. In addition, this situation is exaggerated because Lokesh is also unavailable. He has previously stated that he will recommence his Yuvagalam Padayatra in one week. If this occurs, and he is not detained in some capacity, there will be no crisis.
If he is apprehended, people will have no doubts about what is occurring in the state, and this has the potential to completely alter the election landscape. Even if the father and son are imprisoned, their bond cannot be delayed indefinitely, and they will be released before the elections. Bhuvaneshwari and Brahmani will handle the show in their absence.
The TDP will be fully compensated for their absence by the incoming wave of sympathy. Except for the possibility that the TDP will face elections without Chandrababu or Lokesh, this alleged crisis is exaggerated. This scenario is highly improbable, but if it occurs, the TDP will mourn Chandrababu's experience. Then again, if elections hinge on sentiment, there is little need for experience.
