Chandra Babu Naidu who till now has been following two pronged strategy on formation of telangana decided enough is enough and sent a letter to PM seeking formation of telangana. This came as surprise for the party’s seemandhra leaders as they tried their best to influence him saying there was no need of any such letter .
However Babu this time tried to be different and took the side of telangana as he is keen on covering entire state in his 117days padayatra. However his decision immediately resulted in cracks in the party as its powerful leader from Rayalaseema Byreddy Rajasekhara Reddy and another young MLA decided to resign from the party. They accused Babu trying to divide the state and branded him as traitor of Seemandhra. They questioned how could Babu arrive at the decision, when he himself is from Rayalaseema region.
However supporters of Chandra Babu counter this saying all these leaders who are accusing Babu as traitor of Seemandhra long time back decided to quit the party and join rival YSRCP and they are just waiting for the right opportunity. Since Babu gave the letter they are using it as a pretext to leave the party.It has to be seen who will buy this argument.
