For the past decade and a half Andhra has benefited a lot by being ruled by the party, which governs the nation. Both TDP and Congress used this to their advantage by getting sops for the state. TDP supremo Chandrababu Naidu took the advantage of being the leader of the National Front, then the National Democratic Alliance and turned the state capital to a silicon valley apart from projects like Golden Quadrilateral,
The incumbent Chief Minister YSR used the ruling party leverage to get resources for highly-ambitious ‘Jalayagnam’ and various projects
Now it is clear that the current odds are against Congress (and UPA) and many state officials and corporate bosses from the state feel that it would be better to have a ‘center-friendly’ government in state.
Andhra voters are bit confused with two opposition parties vying for power – TDP and newly launched Praja Rajyam.
Hope Andhra voters make a better choice!!!
