TS BJP leadership does not know how the Centre proposes to balance the interests of both the states. The proposal of the central govt to amend the AP Re-organisation Act 2014 is causing worry among the Telangana BJP leaders.
The State party leaders feel that TRS, which has been successfully playing on the sentiment factor, may use the situation to stall the growth of BJP in the State. The Telangana BJP leaders feel that with TDP being a partner in the NDA government and the ruling party in AP, CM N Chandrababu heavily pressuring in favour of his residuary state.
It may be recalled that the central leadership of the BJP was divided on the issue of bifurcation. While leaders like L K Advani and Narendra Modi were not so forthcoming on the issue of separate Telangana, others like Sushma Swaraj and Rajnath Singh were categorical on dividing the state and hence they launched their campaign from AP.
Congress having taken the decision at the eleventh hour, the BJP lost the chance to take full credit.
