Fortunes of major parties likely to change after AP division

Hyderabad, Aug 1, 2013 (PTI)

Division of Andhra Pradesh will see not just a change in the geographical profile of the state but will also totally alter the political landscape across the regions and re-write the fortunes of all major parties.

What gains it accrues in Telangana region by agreeing to divide Andhra Pradesh is a matter of conjecture but the ruling Congress is expected to find the going tough in the Andhra-Rayalaseema regions.

The Congress hopes the decision in favour of Telangana will pay rich political dividends to it but is wary of the Telangana Rashtra Samiti that remained the torchbearer of the separate statehood movement.


The TRS is yet non-committal on the prospective merger with the Congress and will keep the latter guessing for more time.

But if the TRS seeks to establish its own political identity in the new state rather than embrace the Congress, the latter could face problems.

Such an eventuality will upset the Congress’ larger political game plan.

The Telugu Desam Party hopes to re-establish its hold in Telangana, having inclined in favour of bifurcation.

But, the same factor may dent its prospects in Andhra-Rayalaseema regions though it still remains the major force.

By standing for a unified state in the last minute, the YSR Congress has been reduced to a naught in Telangana and its influence, if any, should now be confined to Andhra-Rayalaseema regions.
