TDP is a defeated party, no need for alliance: GVL


Ruling out any scope for an alliance with TDP, BJP MP and senior AP leader GVL Narasimha Rao on Sunday said that if Chandrababu Naidu is ready to merge TDP with BJP, he will talk to the party leadership.

The comments from GVL come in wake of the recent statement by Naidu in Vishakhapatnam where he said expressed regret over ending ties with the BJP in March last year.

Addressing a news conference in Vijayawada, he also said that TDP chief Naidu was regretting snapping ties with the BJP because he was scared of the future. He, however, clarified that he was not threatening the former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister.

"But, I don't know if he is scared after seeing (P.) Chidambaram, (D.K.) Shivakumar and other leaders," said GVL referring to the corruption cases the tow Congress leaders are facing currently.

Attacking the TDP for its lack of credibility and ideology, GVL said that there was no need for any tie up between the two parties as TDP was a defeated party which is facing extinction.

"There is no need for a tie-up with the TDP. It is a defeated party. Why should we save others. We want to emerge as a key force in the state on our own," he added.

GVL' remarks gain significance in wake for BJP MP Sujana Chowdary, who moved to BJP from TDP earlier this June. Chowdary in a recent public meeting had stated that in case Naidu wants to team up with BJP again, he would talk to the leadership. 

Ruling out any such possibility, GVL said that Chowdary made the statement due to his soft corner for TDP as he spent a large part of his political career in the party.
