It appears power makes any politician energetic physically and psychologically and the moment he loses power, all the physical ailments surface making him sick.
Many leaders like former Prime Ministers P V Narasimha Rao and Atal Behari Vajpayee, who were very active when they ruling the country, suffered from illness within months of losing the hot seat.
May be it is a psychosomatic issue, as losing elections makes a leader psychologically down and that will have an impact on the health.
It appears Telugu Desam Party president and former Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu is also going through the same phase.
All said and done, he is nearing 70 years and is naturally unable to overcome the big blow he had received in the elections.
This is understood to have had the impact on his health as well. Suddenly, age appears to have caught on his face and he has come become weak physically.
According to sources close to the TDP, Naidu is also turning impatient these days and is not able to withstand any criticism.
“Naturally, he is not able to digest the fact that the TDP had lost the elections. He is wondering why the people had rejected him so badly, despite the fact that he had done so much for the state and the people. This is telling on his facial experience and body language,” a source said.
On Sunday, when Naidu came to attend the first death anniversary of his brother-in-law Nandamuri Harikrishna, everybody was surprised to see him walking slowly and talking in a low tone. He appeared very weak and unstable, sources said.
May be, Naidu will regain energies and bounce back in the political activity soon!
