For Chandrababu, Politics is Business

Evolution of Chandrababu School of Politics

Chandrababu is never a genuine politician. He is a manipulator, organiser. He practices politics with money bags. Now he is crying foul, when got set back in his own turf.

According to Daggubati Venkateshwar Rao, NTR was so much pained by Naidu’s act of betrayal in ousting him from power that he asked Balakrishna not only to kill him but also to show him the sword stained with Naidu’s blood.

Chandrababu Naidu converted politics into business. He is the man who started quid pro quo in politics. His equation is simple. Pump the money into politics and earn the money in the Government. He is the first leader to organise MLAs with suitcases. When he organised revolt on his own father in law, a gigantic political leader and founder of Telugu Desham Party NT Rama Rao, Chandrababu used his money power to win over the situation. He visited the Media Managements houses with same suitcases to corrupt them to not to write against him. Then he is a small leader without any charishma or oratory skill or credible history. He needed all sorts of corrupt practices to win over on NTR and consequently to decimate him.

He pampered, cultivated media to his needs and in turn media glorified him like a great administrator and visionary. Once he was projected as Star of Asia and was given many titles which he did not deserved. His vision is such that the compound wall of the Cyber Towers was demolished half a dozen times to widen the road afterwards. He has one good quality that is organises skilled people to serve him. But he had the knack of entire credit taking on his head.

After over throwing NTR, he was tested to proof in 1996 and 1998 LokhSabha election. He is in a fixation to prove that he is right owner of the party. For any political party or leader election is the proof to prove strength. NTR died of massive hear attack after going through very bad stage of his life deceived by every one and back stabbed by his own family. NTR era came to an end in 1996 January. Chandrababu pumped his money politics into both elections and got upper hand on TDP.

Every system was corrupted by Chandrababu to win over the rights of TDP. One cannot surprise that the history of those five months was not wrote by any of journalist or historian. This generation deprived to know the treachery of Chandrababu. Its a cold blooded political decimation. Chandrababu was not won a single election on his own after NTR, where as NTR made it possible earlier. Chandrababu won 15 out of 42 Lokh Sabah seats in 1996 and 19 out of 42 Lokh Sabha seats in 1998. In 1998 BJP on its own won 18% vote and 4 Lokh Sabha seats.

The smell of changing winds were grabbed with the swiftness of a jackal and kicked the United Front and Joined hands with BJP in 1999 General Elections. BJP with winning Kargil war image, clubbed with Pro-Vajapayee sympathy wave was on high road in the winning race. TDP with all its minuses was saved by BJP then. Later he crushed the BJP to the dust. He was defeated in 2004 General elections.Later he kicked the BJP and proclaimed himself as staunch secularist. And also he declared Narendra Modi a blood monger.

Revealed: NTR’s intense hatred for Chandrababu Naidu

Daggubati Venkateshwara Rao, the elder son-in-law of late Telugu Desam Party founder N T Rama Rao and husband of Union Minister of State Purandeswari, has unveiled some dark secrets of the past, rattling the NTR family and the TDP leadership.

Venkateshwara Rao, who continues to be a bitter opponent of his co-brother Chandrababu Naidu, opened a Pandora’s Box by disclosing that in his last days, NTR was so bitterly against Naidu that he had asked his film actor son N Balakrishna to ‘murder’ him.

Rao, now part of the ruling Congress party along with his wife, made this revelation in a letter he wrote to Balakrishna asking him to see the true colours of Chandrababu Naidu.

According to Rao, NTR was so much pained by Naidu’s act of betrayal in ousting him from power that he asked Balakrishna not only to kill him but also to show him the sword stained with Naidu’s blood.

‘Do you remember Balaiah? In one of his last day, how painfully your father had told you something. If you are my son, kill that Chandrababu and show me the blood stained sword,’ Venkateshwara Rao wrote in his lengthy letter. ‘I don’t think he really meant you to kill him but unable to give voice to his pain, he said that. What he said with great pain, you had preserved on a CD.’

Rao recalled many other things from the past, focusing mostly on the coup led by Chandrababu Naidu against NTR in August 1995, in which he was supported by NTR’s sons.

Rao admitted that he too was involved in that ‘sin’. But he wondered how Naidu persuaded Balakrishna and Harikrishna to become part of the coup against their father. “I also don’t know what he has promised you now to make you campaign for the TDP,” he said.

The letter was originally written in February, but Venkateshwara Rao decided to come out with it as he did not see any change in Balakrishna’s attitude. The revelations come days after Balakrishna held his road show outside his sister’s residence in Karamchedu village of Guntur and made a stinging attack against her and Rao for being with the Congress.

While Rao is a Congress legislator, Purandareswari was elected to Lok Sabha and is a Minister of State in Manmohan Singh government.

Chandrababu is a political parasite. He was defeated again in 2009. After division of the state again he joined with BJP, when Narendra Modi wave was on high and also roped in cine hero Pawan Kalyan. He won in Andhra. But he feels that all this is his capability and Andhra media project him as a great visionary.

Chandrababu is never a genuine politician. He is a manipulator, organiser. He practices politics with money bags. Now he is crying foul, when got set back in his own turf.

Revolt against NTR was to save party: Naidu
TNN | May 30, 2011, 12.43AM IST

HYDERABAD: Sixteen years after he ousted his father-in-law N T Rama Rao to become the chief minister, TDP president N Chandrababu Naidu on Sunday broke his silence to clear the air and said the “revolt” was only to save the party and Andhra Pradesh.

Referring to the incident that took place in 1995, Naidu said a “dushta shakti” (referring to Lakshmi Parvati) tried to destroy the party and to protect the party from the “evil force,” he had to revolt and split the party. “I never thought even in my dreams that I will revolt against NTR. For me, NTR was not just a father-in-law, but a god whom I worshipped. But he was facing problems having come under the influence of the `evil force’ and hence we were left with no other option to save the TDP,” Naidu said at the three-day Mahanadu that ended at Gandipet.

“We tried all means to check her influence and save the party but failed. Then, left with no option, we had to effect a leadership change and form the government (in 1995) in a democratic manner with the support of more than 200 MLAs,” he said.

It may be recalled that Naidu had staged a coup against his father-in-law and the then chief minister N T Rama Rao by causing a split in the party.

Members of the NTR family stood by Naidu in this regard then while the Left parties also supported him. Subsequently, Naidu claimed his was the real Telugu Desam Party and continued in power for nine years. An agonised NTR died of a heart-attack in January 1996.

For years Naidu never spoke on the issue though he continued to use NTR as the party mascot to attract people who revered the charismatic leader as a demi-god.

With the NTR family now reportedly sulking over Naidu’s leadership and TDP’s lost glory under him, the former chief minister tacitly used the Mahanadu platform to proclaim his loyalty towards his father-in-law and the party.

Maintaining that politics and relationship were different, Naidu said his only objective was to keep the TDP flag flying high forever and serve the people.

The clash of the heirs
NTR’s third son raises banner of revolt against Andhra Pradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu
Amarnath K. Menon February 1, 1999 | UPDATED 11:29 IST

In September 1995, in a midnight coup, N. Chandrababu Naidu deposed his father-in-law and Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief N.T. Rama Rao (NTR), to assume office as the youngest chief minister of Andhra Pradesh.
Shocked at the perfidy, NTR suffered a massive stroke in January 1996 and died. Three and a half years later, a remorseful Naidu is busy trying to revive NTR’s legacy.
Giant cutouts of the film star-turned-politician, which had been gathering dust for years, have now been brought out and put up along the main thoroughfares of Hyderabad.

NTR’s statues in the city are being spruced up even as new ones are erected and his photographs are once again being printed on the covers of party pamphlets and booklets.

Recently, Naidu sanctioned Rs 4 crore to the Hyderabad Urban Development Authority to complete the granite flooring of NTR’s cremation site on the banks of the Hussain Sagar Lake and even pledged another Rs 18 crore to develop the adjoining environs as a tribute to the memory of the late leader.

Naidu’s motives are not purely altruistic. Shortly after NTR’s death, Naidu was involved in a bitter political brawl with the late chief minister’s widow Lakshmi Parvati, who headed the rival TDP faction.
He easily overcame that challenge but now finds himself the target of an attack from his brother-in-law N. Harikrishna, NTR’s third son.
“The TDP Government has ignored the contributions of NTR and the development and welfare goals that he had set for the state and its people,” he thundered recently. Harikrishna may have set himself a stiff agenda, considering that Naidu seems comfortably ensconced in office.

An Eye on The Poll: N. Chandrababu Naidu is now busy trying to revive NTR’s legacy
But the chief minister knows that in Harikrishna he is likely to encounter a foe considerably more dangerous than NTR’s widow. Typically, in the beginning, Naidu ignored his brother-in-law, but as Harikrishna set out on a mass contact tour of the state and his meetings attracted massive crowds, he could no more afford to turn a blind eye.
He told cabinet colleagues to tour the state to explain to the people that his Government had never deviated from the policies enunciated by NTR. He was also careful enough to warn his colleagues against making personal attacks on his brother-in-law, lest it send wrong signals to the party cadres.

NTR’s son has reason to be angry. He had helped Naidu organise the coup that led to NTR’s ouster, and though not an MLA the chief minister had rewarded him by inducting him into the Cabinet as transport minister. But he resigned as he failed to get elected as a legislator within the mandatory six months.

A few months later, he won elections to the Assembly but by then fissures had developed between the two brothers-in-law. Though Naidu expanded his Cabinet twice, he kept Harikrishna out, offering him a sop by making him the chief of the Telugu Yuvatha.
Harikrishna obviously believes it is too insignificant a post for someone of his stature and has been trying to capitalise on the disenchantment within the TDP to further his cause.
Says he, “Naidu employs ‘use and discard’ tactics with colleagues.” He was also resentful of Naidu’s stranglehold over the party, threatening his ministers, MLAs and party cadres and using the media for selective leaks to discipline them. “Total demoralisation has set in in the party,” says Harikrishna.

Last week, in a letter to the chief minister, he accused Naidu’s Government of systematically trying to undo the NTR legacy. The list of charges was long – removing all photos of NTR from the party membership books and publicity posters, government not lobbying hard enough with the Central Government to confer the Bharat Ratna on NTR, sidelining his pro-poor policies like subsidised rice and cheap power to farmers and abandoning others that were close to NTR’s heart like prohibition.
“I cannot sit idle when they ignore NTR’s ideals and his legacy,” he fumed. Naidu would perhaps have treated Harikrishna’s tantrums as a harmless distraction, but with assembly elections due in the state before the end of the year he knows he cannot afford to do so.
“The intra-party feud could cost the TDP dear in the assembly elections later this year.”
The TDP politburo has reacted by terming Harikrishna’s remarks as “highly objectionable and derogatory” but would rather that Naidu take the initiative to restrain his brother-in-law and if that fails, to contain the damage.
Some party members have even suggested that Harikrishna be suspended for flouting party discipline. That strategy has worked in the past. In 1997, film star and Rajya Sabha member Mohan Babu accused the chief minister of betraying NTR and was soon expelled from the party. But Harikrishna is a tougher candidate who has the support of the disgruntled in the TDP.

But more importantly perhaps, as NTR’s son he has as much if not a greater claim to the late chief minister’s legacy. Naidu’s aides are pinning their hopes on either the chief minister succeeding in containing the revolt or the line-ups in this inner party struggle crystallising well ahead of the assembly elections, so that the chief minister is able to marginalise his opponents.

The signs of mutiny in the ruling party appears to be a godsend to the opposition Congress. Last February, the TDP was battered by a resurgent Congress in the Lok Sabha elections and there were no fissures in the party then. “This is a TDP sideshow at public expense,” says K. Rosiah, Congress MP. Naidu does not have too much time to contain the revolt. If he fails, the Congress is waiting in the wings to take over.

    Here is what Chandrababu Naidu said about Prime Minister Modi when he was CM of Gujarat on Riots.
    – – – – – – –
    “Muslims were killed in huge numbers during 2002 Gujarat riots, comparing it to puppy getting crushed under car is shameful. It is disgraceful that man holding CM post is having such kind of feelings,”

    “Mr. Modi doesn’t even have any remorse for open killings of Muslims right under his Govt. He has overlooked that his comments would hurt the sentiments of families who lost their loved once in the riots, and it will boost motivations of communal roguish elements.”

    NOW SHAMLESSLY
