The political analysts say that the rift between Nara Chandrababu Naidu and Devender Goud has been brewing for sometime. The observers say that Babu created such a no alternative situation that Goud has no other way except to resign.
Expectedly, Devender Goud raised the bogey of Telangana as the reason for his resignation and pledged to work for separate statehood for Telangana. The news is making rounds that his outfit will be named Telangana Telugu Desam. Speculation is rife that there will be many more deserters from TDP and even from TRS, who will join hands with Goud.
Commenting on the resignation of Devender Goud, the TDP President, Chandrababu Naidu said that the Party is more important than individuals. By asserting that Telugu Desam is bigger than Goud, the TDP supremo seems to be sending a signal that either Goud’s move is expected or that his exit does not make much difference to the TDP.
Naidu is widely expected to start damage control and may send emissaries to other dissidents like Kadiam Srihari , Ch Rajeswar Rao and others to try and persuade them not to align with Goud.
The dissidence in TDP, Congress and TRS viewed in the context of the imminent political entry of Chiranjeevi soon, makes the state political scenario more interesting with all the elements of an intrigue.
