Chiru helped Congress to win
Congress party leader V Hanumantha Rao’s argument matches with TDP president Chandrababu Naidu’s.
Naidu earlier said that the Congress party came to power because of Chiranjeevi’s Praja Rajyam Party which dented chances of TDP by dividing anti-incumbent votes.
The Congress got thin majority with 155 seats in 2009 compared with 186 in 2004. VH Rao attributed the Chiru and Sonia Gandhi factors in 2009 victory by dismissing YS Rajasekhara Reddy’s charisma.
