2014-19 has been a period of neglect for the Telugu Desam Party’s Telangana Wing. Whatever may be the reason, Chandara babu did not give time for the party. TDP fans got adjusted due to that thinking that their leader is fully occupied with Andhra Pradesh Politics and Administration.
Things did not change even when the party is in the Opposition in AP. There is little participation in the party affairs by Chandrababu as well as Lokesh. Moreover, the party is not even contesting the elections there with or without alliances.
TDP (TS) Working President L Ramana announced contesting independently in Dubbaka by-election and GHMC Elections. But it did not happen as the party did not field its candidate in Dubbaka and the time has elapsed for filing the nominations.
“GHMC elections is the final chance for TDP to make its presence felt. If the party does not take it seriously. Very soon, it will become irrelevant in Telangana Politics. It’s time for Chandrababu to step up,” the party supporters say.
