TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu, during his 'Vastunna Meekosam' Padayatra was seen playing multiple roles—he tried his hands at knitting slippers as well as giving someone a hair cut!
This has not gone down too well with his party men, who argue that Naidu needn't have done all this to show he was one of them. Instead, he could verbally send the message across, they say.
However, what one doesn't realise is the man behind Naidu's move! Sources who have been closely following Naidu say that these strategies are all part of his son Lokesh's script.
Sources in the TDP say that Lokesh has formed a special team to make his father's padayatra successful. The scenes of knitting slippers are the part of the script made by Lokesh. Right from the dialogues to action... everything is being handled by Lokesh's special team. And Naidu is making every effort to live up to his son's expectations. He's sticking to the team's strategies not to disappoint his son. However, his own party men are not very happy with this, sources say.
They feel people will lose trust if Naidu continues with this drama. However, Lokesh and his team are undeterred.
The buzz is that Lokesh's involvement in every aspect and move of the party is creating a rift between TDP leaders. If this continues, will Lokesh's tactics do more harm than good to the party?
