New Delhi: Political parties have started preparations for the Lok Sabha elections. Alliance partners are being searched. Nitish Kumar has returned to NDA. Now another party of NDA is also eager to return. In this sequence, Telugu Desam Party (TDP) President N. Chandrababu Naidu met Union Home Minister Amit Shah and BJP President J.P. Nadda in Delhi late on Wednesday night to discuss a tripartite electoral alliance for the Assembly and Lok Sabha elections in Andhra Pradesh.

BJP also ready for alliance – sources

Sources said the TDP president is keen on forging an alliance with the BJP before the elections and many BJP leaders also believe that a partnership with Naidu will help the NDA do well in the YSR Congress-ruled state. A senior BJP leader said his party is ready for an alliance but it will all depend on how many seats the state’s main opposition party TDP agrees to give, especially for the Lok Sabha elections.

TDP separated from NDA in the year 2018

Although the alliance talks are still in the initial stages, if Naidu returns to the NDA, it will be the second success of the BJP-led alliance in strengthening the ruling alliance. Recently, Janata Dal (United) President and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar broke ties with the opposition and joined hands with BJP. Let us tell you that TDP had separated from NDA in the year 2018, after which it contested the 2019 elections alone and was badly defeated.

Naidu had met Amit Shah last year also

After the defeat in these elections, TDP had again started its efforts to come together with NDA. Chandrababu Naidu had met Amit Shah and Nadda in June last year. The meeting had sparked speculation about the two parties reviving their alliance, as it was Naidu’s first meeting with Amit Shah after TDP’s exit from the NDA in 2018. However, the BJP was indifferent to Naidu’s proposals, as the YSRCP had maintained friendly relations with the Modi government and supported it in Parliament in passing several key bills.
