TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu looks strange these days. He had the company of top leaders like Devender Goud, Kotagiri Vidyadhara Rao, Lal Jan Basha, Yerran Naidu, Thummala Nageswara Rao, Yanamala Ramakrishnudu and so on in those days.
These leaders are experts in their own fields – some were good in politics, some in economics, some in Centre-State relations etc. They had their own image that helped the party at different levels in those days.
When Naidu lost the elections in 2004 and 2009, there were top leaders who helped Naidu to sit back and think. There were brainstorming sessions that Naidu had with these and other think tanks in those days.
But, when Naidu moved out from Hyderabad and settled in Vijayawada, those who are found around him speak volumes of his deteriorating politics.
Today, in Amaravati, who is found around Chandrababu Naidu? Who is Chandrababu Naidu consulting?
Buddha Venkanna, Bonda Uma, Panchumarti Anuradha, Vangalapudi Anitha, Kommareddi Pattabhiram are some names that come to the mind, who are the current advisors, eyes and ears of Chandrababu Naidu.
These names are enough to say from where Naidu had gone and where he is now. With the association of these loud mouths, what kind of politics can Chandrababu Naidu do, if not hurling abuses or encouraging these loud mouths to hurl abuses!
