Will TDP help in Congress in making Rahul Gandhi's yatra in AP a success?

Now that the Bharat Jodo Padayatra of Rahul Gandhi is sure to enter Andhra Pradesh, there hangs a big question mark as to how the emaciated and non-existent Congress Party will make this a success. The party is somnolent and is almost non-existent.  The party has not organised even a single programme worth the salt in the last three years. Given this, how will the Congress make Rahul Gandhi's tour a success?

The Congress Party is all but dead in Andhra Pradesh. In the last eight years, the party has had no representation in the assembly and lost security deposit in all the 175 constituencies. Key leaders like former chief minister Kiran Kumar Reddy, former ministers N Raghuveera Reddy and Sailajanath have not been active in politics. Leaders like Kiran Kumar Reddy and Sailajanath have shown any interest in leading the party.

Highly placed sources say that the Telugu Desam could tacitly support the Congress in its yatra. The TDP might ensure that Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodi get decent crowds. This could help the party successfully complete the AP leg of the tour. Sources say that the Congress too had sought the TDP help.

But there is a hitch. How would the BJP, which has a very efficient spy mechanism, react to this if it comes to know of the TDP bail-out to the Congress? What will be the effect on the TDP's attempts to enter into an alliance with the BJP for 2024.  The BJP is already keeping an eye on the way Rahul Gandhi's yatra is progressing. So, will TDP help the Congress or will it not risk its relation with the TDP.
