- AP BJP leaders feel that the existence of their party in the State is questionable
- BJP is in alliance with ruling TDP in AP but BJP still doubt its existence in the state
- On the other hand BJP is in opposition in Kerala and can still sustain itself
Andhra Pradesh BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party) leaders are averse to alliance with ruling TDP (Telugu Desam Party) in the state during the next general elections as they fear that AP CM Nara Chandrababu Naidu is more dangerous than Kerala Communists where BJP is in opposition.
This was the majority opinion in the AP BJP state meeting which was held in Guntur. When the leaders started discussion about the attacks on BJP leaders and workers in Kerala, some leaders intervened and demanded for a discussion on the condition of BJP in AP rather than somewhere in Kerala.
Majority felt that though BJP is in alliance with ruling TDP, none of the BJP leaders receive respect due for them. They questioned the State president Kambhampati Haribabu as to why to have an alliance with TDP when they are being insulted at every turn. They also expressed their distress in not being able to question corruption in the TDP.
Some BJP leaders demanded for independent fight in the next elections and queried how they could face polls if Chandrababu ditched them at the last moment. They felt that this is the right time to split and ready themselves for an independent fight.
