Who is Chalasani Srinivas? For the Telugus, he is a protagonist of Special status for Andhra Pradesh and an indefatigable fighter for the cause of Andhra Pradesh. But, some people are now seeing through his game. They are realising that he is a covert of Chandrababu and is doing Chandrababu's bidding. He is seen helping provide a facade to Chandrababu Naidu.
Everyone knows that for four-and-a-half years, Chandrababu Naidu had opposed special status and rooted for special status. He had even said that special status was useless and that no state was better off because of the special status. Now that the elections are approaching and the YSRCP was scoring over the TDP on the issue, he has suddenly changed tack and began championing the special status issue. Interestingly, he had got many people in jails for demanding special status to AP. These people are still doing the rounds of the courts in connection with the cases registered then.
Interestingly, Chalasani, who was conspicuously silent during the YSRCP-led agitations, was very prominent at the Delhi deeksha of Chandrababu. He went to Delhi on Government money and stayed ina swank hotel. He has thus proved himself to be a covert of Chandrababu Naidu.
