The BJP has unveiled a massive plan to finish of the TDP. And the BJP wants to do it as quickly as possible. Already, the four Rajya Sabha MPs, who have joined the BJP recently, have begun the Operation Akarsh. Vallabhaneni Vamsi is being persuaded to discard the yellow stole and don the saffron stole. On Wednesday, two key leaders of the TDP, Repalle MLA Anagani Satyaprasad and party general secretary Lanka Dinakar have gone to Delhi and Dinakar has in fact joined the BJP in the presence of Amit Shah. There are reports that at least two more sitting MLAs are accompanying Anagani. Meanwhile, there are reliable reports that Ganta Srinivasa Rao has mopped up another 10 MLAs from across the state. The moment their numbers reach 16, they will break free from the TDP and form a separate group. Within days, they will join the BJP. If sources are to be believed, Ganta Srinivasa Rao would be made the leader of the BJP in AP Assembly.
According to some sources, except, Chandrababu, Balakrishna, Atchen Naidu, Butchaiah Chowdary and one more MLA, all others are likely to switch over to the BJP. In another development, Nandamuri Balakrishna's close relative Potluri Krishna Babu and his wife have joined the BJP on Wednesday. This would be a huge shock to Balayya Babu. Sources say Purandeswari played a key role in getting Potluri's on board.
