Results of the Telangana Assembly Polls came as a bitter shock to AP BJP. Saffron Party Leaders in Andhra Pradesh are clueless about the future of their in the state. They express the view, 'If Telangana BJP can't win more than 1 seat, What can AP BJP achieve fighting single handedly in the next elections? How could we seek votes after backtracking on Special Category Status?'.
BJP High Command is keen to field candidates in all the 175 Assembly Segments in AP but not many leaders are keen to fight the losing battle. Just alike what happened in the Telangana Polls, Only the Leaders who fail to grab the tickets of TDP, YCP and JSP might come forward to contest on BJP Tickets.
As Special Category Status will be the main agenda of all the parties, Nobody would bother about the other poll promises of BJP during 2019 Elections. BJP Candidates mayn't even get deposits in majority of the constituencies because Andhrites have full clarity on the approach of the Modi towards the state. Most likely, BJP will end up winning none of the seats. Being aware of the pathetic situation, Many of its leaders including party chief Kanna Lakshminarayana are keen to shift loyalties to other parties before the elections.
