In the last few months, anti-incumbency is peaking on YSR Congress and the Principal opposition, Telugu Desam Party is surging back. The party may be unstoppable if Chandrababu and Lokesh hit the streets.
At this juncture, it looks like Jagan is trying to give some push to BJP so that the anti-government vote will be decided. This is visible in the controversial decisions the government is taking.
We have seen the government trying to use TTD properties for the government buildings needed in the new districts. We have already seen BJP opposing.
The Government has today decided to adopt Urdu as the second official language of Andhra Pradesh. The saffron party once again will try to use it to its benefit.
There are doubts if Jagan is trying to help BJP grow in the state so that the anti-government vote will be divided. Jagan estimates that TDP and BJP would never work together and that will come as a big help for his hopes of coming to power for the second time.
This kind of strategy may work with Janasena which at least has some presence in AP. Probably, Jagan is betting on a dead horse.
