These days, the Telugu Desam Party seems to have only one medicine for all its problems. It seems to have just one single weapon to face its political rival â€“ the YSRCP. TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu is relying on that weapon once too often.
The weapon we are talking about is the BC victim card. For every problem the party is facing and for every attack launched by the YSRCP, the TDP is only using this card. When Atchen Naidu, a senior minister and many-time MLA, was arrested in the ESI scam, the TDP pushed the BC card. It said Atchen Naidu was being harassed just because he was a BC. Not once did Chandrababu or the TDP denied that he was not involved in the scam. Similarly, when Machilipatnam's former minister Kollu Ravindra was arrested in connection with a murder case, the same BC card was invoked. Now Pitani Satyanarayana and his son are all set to arrested for financial misdemeanors. Chandrababu is once again using the BC card.
Even JC Diwakar Reddy's brother and former MLA JC Prabhakar Reddy of the TDP got arrested in connection with the fake licences case. Will Chandrababu use the BC card here too? Prabhakar Reddy, as everyone knows , is a Reddy.
