Hyderabad: There is a Cat and Rat game going on between ruling Congress and opposition TDP. Both the parties are trying to prove that they are not less than each of them. Due to this the people of all the three regions are perplexed. The daily routines have been paralysed and there is no traditional enthusiasm.
According to political analysis, this game started when the results of Gram Panchayat elections were declared. In a strange move, TDP perform well in Panchayat elections which worried Congress. CWC suddenly announced the formation of Telangana on 30th July, so that to check the progress of TDP for 2014 general elections but TDP Supremo, Mr. Chandrababu Naidu accept the challenge of Congress and in a very confident manner announced that it was TDP which desired the then Prime Minister, Mr. Atal Bihar Vajpai to form smaller states like Uttarakhand, Jharkhand, Chattisgarh along with Telangana state.
In order to counter the somersaults of Congress Mr. Chandrababu Naidu discontinued his Atma Gaurava Yatra and proceeded to New Delhi to apprise the Central leaders of the latest political situation prevailing in the state. After returning from Delhi, Mr. Naidu has hinted at touring Telangana districts also. It is an indication that Mr. Chandrababu Naidu has practically started the activities for the general elections of 2014.
It is worth noting that Mr. Naidu has predicted that TDP will get 30 Lok Sabha seats in the state. This has surprised the TDP leaders also.
The survey conducted by Centre for Developing Societies predicted that TDP will get more seats in Telangana than Congress and TRS according to the results of the survey. TRS may get 43 to 48 seats, Congress 29 to 34 seats, whereas TDP will bag 100 or more seats in coastal Andhra. It may also get 20 to 24 seats in Rayalaseema Region. In the wake of these presumptions, ruling Congress and TDP are trying to overtake each other.
