BJP MLC P.V.N Madhav took a dig at the TDP and CM Chandrababu Naidu. He predicted that TDP will split into two factions after the poll results were announced, i.e, on May 23. He quoted, "the TDP cadre and the Nandamuri family will be on one side and the Nara clan on the other". However, TDP MLC Ashok Babu strongly condemned his comments over the vertical split. He claimed that the BJP is probably conspiring for the split.
Madhav went on to slam Chandrababu Naidu saying that, even though he is on the path of losing, CM is still desperate to play a big role in national politics. He assured that Chandrababu will lose the battle this time, saying he deceived Andhra people from the past five years.
He went on to blame Naidu a bit deeper claiming that CM also appointed bureaucrats in his favour. But the Election Commission came in the middle spoiled his tactical game. Not only that, as Chandrababu is currently fighting on EVMs tampering, Madhav said that since Lagadapatiti predicted TDP's win, "does that mean the TDP and CM tampered with EVMs?" It is known that Chandrababu is on the charge that EVMs are vulnerable devices and can be easily tampered.
