Second big shock to him was that several of his MLCs are ready to switch over to the YSRCP. This became very clear that six of his MLCs chose to abstain from the Telugu Desam Legislature Party meeting held on Sunday. The MLCs were Gali Saraswati, KE Prabhakar, Tippe Swamy, Satrucharla Vijayaramaraju, AS Ramakrishna and Samanthaka Mani. In addition, at least two MLAs have already voted against the TDP in the three capitals issue.
To add to it, thee was a third shock. The shock is that there was a very significant earthquake in the Krishna river. The region is very close to the capital area in Amaravati. The epicentre is in the Krishna river bed. The tremors were mostly felt in Suryapet, Nalgonda, Guntur and Krishna districts. This has in effect proved that the area selected for the capital of the city is precariously positioned due to high seismic activity. Chandrababu Naidu was besieged on all sides and was finding it difficult to fend off the attack from all the three sides.
