It seems BJP leaders from Andhra Pradesh - Kavuri Sambasiva Rao and Daggubati Purandheswari are playing key role in every decision being taken by BJP led centre with regard to AP related issues.
Reports says that the trio played an important role in the centres decision not to grant special status to AP recently.
Interestingly, the three leaders were senior most congress before joining BJP in 2014 elections. Against AP bifurcation, they quit congress.
The three leaders held several rounds of meetings with BJP high command and discussed the issue in detail. They argued that since special status issue was not included in AP Reorgnisation Act, there is no need of accepting the demand put forth by ruling TDP and congress.
Reportedly, They told the BJP central leaders that even if the centre wanted to accord special status, the party must get the crediting not the others. Towards this end, BJP must prepare a strategy to gain political gain in 2019 elections.
The three leaders assured the BJP high command that they will strengthen the party in AP by next elections. The trio will soon meet Modi and explain their plans to make BJP as an alternative in Andhra Pradesh.
