Naidu’s “use and throw” politics exposed

Chandra Babu Naidu’s “Use and throw” politics are now known through out the world. Volumes have been written about how he has used his close relatives and party men as stepping stones in his political career and later dumped them unceremoniously.

Arvind Kumar Goud and Talasani Srinivas Yadav, two prominent Telangana TDP leaders, recently tasted this “use and throw” behavior of Chandra Babu Naidu.

When the Rajya Sabha nominees of TDP were announced a couple of days back, both Arvind Kumar Goud and Talasani Srinivas Yadav were shocked. They were very confident about their candidatures because of the ‘services’ they had rendered to the party.

For those who are curious about what those ‘services’ are, both these men listed out those ‘services’ in front of media yesterday.

When Devender Goud left the Telugu Desam party to float Nava Telangana Praja Party, Naidu promptly summoned Arvind Kumar Goud, who was the nephew of Devender Goud.

Naidu asked Arvind to attack Devender Goud and promised him a plum post as reward. Arvind, who was then a small time leader was overwhelmed with this offer and started a tirade against his own uncle.

For weeks together Arvind Kumar Goud used to conduct press conferences in NTR Trust Bhavan and attack Devender Goud on a regular basis. He was supplied interesting insider titbits and attack ammunition by Naidu himself.

But everything changed when Devender Goud, who could not run his Telangana party, merged it with PRP and after suffering humiliating defeat in 2009 general elections, and later came back to join his parent party TDP.

Two years have passed and yet Naidu did not give anything in return for Arvind Kumar Goud’s ‘services’. And adding insult to injury, appointed Devender Goud to Rajya Sabha.

This caused so much heartburn to Arvind Kumar Goud that he lashed out at Naidu in front of media yesterday. He said Naidu cheated him after using him to attack Devender Goud.

Even Talasani Srinivas Yadav was used by Naidu to attack both Devender Goud and TRS supremo K. Chandrasekhar Rao. But after his job was done, Naidu just dumped Talasani. So angry was Talasani that he is now contemplating quitting the party too.

Well, these are just the latest episodes in the long history of Naidu’s “use and throw” politics.
