Re: Kerala, Andhra and Tamil Nadu - news and strategy thread

AP BJP always sacrificed for TDP by Kamma lobby. Now that it is trying to go alone CBN is trying to get into NDA again to play the same drama. Kanna at least was not in CBN take as far as I know. Two best things happen to BJP in AP was Venkayya going out of active politics and AS deciding not to al...
