Mahakutami comprising of Congress, TDP, TJS and CPI has only tasted defeat in Telangana. Still, AP CM Chandrababu Naidu is keen to have alliance with Congress for 2019 Elections. On the other hand, Rahul Gandhi invited AP Congress Leaders to discuss about alliance with TDP for next elections. AP Congress Chief Raghuveera Reddy is likely to reach Delhi in a day or two for holding discussions.
Chandrababu Naidu is contemplating on offering 10-15 MLA Seats and 1-2 MP Seats to Congress as part of alliance dharma.The agenda is to seek votes by convincing the people that UPA would offer Special Category Status to Andhra Pradesh if people's mandate is in favour of TDP and Congress alliance.
Both TDP and Congress Leaders fear what happened in Telangana might repeat in Andhra Pradesh as well if they contest elections jointly. In addition, Statements issued by KCR and Asaduddin Owaisi hinting the possibility of campaigning against TDP in AP is worrying them. KCR have a huge fan base in AP as well & Owaisi can influence the Muslim Minorities.If these two leaders campaign against TDP, It would be an added bonus to the YSR Congress Party. Overall, The future is going to be tough for the Ruling Party in AP.
