Telangana BJP is operating independently for a long time and on many occasions went on to say that there will be no alliance with TDP (TS) for 2019 elections. But then, in the wake of Presidential Elections, TDP (TS) and BJP MLAs sat in a coordination meeting.
It has to be seen if this meeting is only for taking the support of TDP (TS) in the Presidential Elections or if both the parties will continue working together in future as well. If they do not work together, BJP will be seen as opportunistic.
All the major parties in the Telugu States – AP and Telangana have pledged support to the NDA’s Presidential Candidate, Ram Nath Kovind. The voting is currently underway across the country and the counting will happen on 20th of this month.
