What is the biggest worry for the Congress in Telangana? It's not the TRS, not even KCR. The Congress isn't worried about the Left or even the BJP. It's biggest worry is not Kodandaram. In fact, the Congress is most worried about its biggest ally - the Telugu Desam Party. The reality is every party in the Congress-led Maha Kutami is afraid of the TDP.
Their worry is that the only person they have to negotiate with is Chandrababu Naidu. Chandrababu Naidu has directed his partymen in Telangana not to speak anything about elections, alliances and pacts. This means he is the only one who decides the things in the TDP. His word is the law. Talking to other leaders is of no consequence.
There are nagging fears in the Congress that after the elections, Chandrababu Naidu might against switch sides and that he might again go to the BJP. This could be the reason why Chandrababu Naidu wants all other party leaders from Telangana to shut up. Realising this, some Congress leaders have already started raising doubts about Chandrababu. Komatireddy Venkat Reddy has asked the party to reconsider the decision to align with the Telugu Desam.
It is reliably learnt that even the Left Parties, which have past experience of dealing with Chandrababu, are also afraid. The TJS too feel that aligning with Chandrababu Naidu, a known anti-Telanganite, could be counter-productive. So, everyone in the Kutami are cagey about the Telugu Desam and its boss Chandrababu.
