'Chandrababu & Modi could be friends again'

'Chandrababu & Modi could be friends again'

Senior Congress leader Undavalli Arun Kumar said if TDP Chief N. Chandrababu Naidu believes he needs Centre's support, he will go back to the BJP and have an alliance with them after winning elections.

Giving an example of how Chandrababu Naidu had gone back to BJP in 1998, Undavalli said: "Before Chandrababu had an alliance with the BJP, the saffron party was ready to put him behind bars because he criticised them for being a religiously divisive party. But, the moment BJP won in 1998, he offered to support Vajpayee then and that is how he became a Kingmaker," he added.

So, going by his past moves and understanding how he looks at political opportunities, Chandrababu Naidu may go back and have an alliance with the BJP even if he wins 10 MP seats in the state, said Undavalli Arun Kumar. "It is unnecessary to think that he is now against the BJP and is working towards unseat Modi. But, you should also remember that alliances are possible between any party. So, it is not worth fighting or arguing about," he added.

Going by Chandrababu Naidu's earlier statements on Modi after Godha riots, "Chandrababu had said that he won't let Modi step into Hyderabad. But, look at 2014. He supported Modi and campaigned with him before elections and in fact, asked people to vote for them at the Centre," mentioned Undavalli, adding that all is fair in politics.
