In the interesting political developments of Andhra Pradesh, a new news has hit the headlines making many political lovers go all shell shock. Let us look at this surprising piece of news.
As some MLA’s and MP’s are looking forward to joining YSRCP post the budget release, a YSRCP MLA of coastal Andhra is in talks to join TDP. He is none other than the Guntur East MLA Mustafa. This powerful Muslim leader has made his mark by defeating TDP candidate in 2014 elections. Since then, he is in good looks of the sitting MP of TDP Rayapati Sambasiva Rao. With their good relationships, they started meeting often and it leads to a new twist in Mustafa’s career. Rayapati has offered Mustafa to join TDP for political gain and the latter has reportedly shown some interest. The duo has decided to meet the TDP Chief Chandrababu Naidu soon to discuss this issue.
Finally, they met CBN who has been to Guntur lately to inaugurate a hotel construction. Sources close to Rayapati say that Mustafa appeared positive about joining TDP prior to the elections of 2019 if he gets a nominated post along with some benefits. Post the meeting, Mustafa interacted with the press and refuted the rumors of shifting his loyalties. He claimed that he will stick to YSRCP no matter what. He continued by saying that he met the CM only to discuss issues of his constituency. Mustafa lauded CBN for granting 2 crores in order to develop Guntur East which is his base camp.
Political analysts confirm that their meeting is purely personal and has nothing to do with the constituency. They back their statements by explaining that Mustafa would have asked funds directly by press meet or in Assembly. They also point out his need to meet CBN along with a TDP MP as well. One may not understand what actually is going on with the two major political parties in AP. People only expect some leader to address the state’s problems perfectly to the center. Stay prepared for more shaking pieces of news in the upcoming days.
