‘Next PM Chandrababu?’: Posters in Tamil Nadu

After ending all the ties with the NDA, AP CM Nara Chandrababu Naidu is reportedly uniting all the anti-BJP parties under one roof, the United Front. There were even a few speculations amongst the enthusiastic TDP supporters that Chandrababu is eyeing the Prime Minister post in 2019.

Meanwhile, much to everyone’s surprise, a few flexies and posters stating that Chandrababu will be the next PM have adorned the walls across key areas in Chennai. “Adutha Prathamar Chandrababu? (Next PM Chandrababu?),” say these posters. Even a section of Tamil media has started publishing special stories about Chandrababu.

In the past, Tamil stars like Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth had openly displayed their admiration for Chandrababu Naidu’s governing skills. After Babu’s recent revolt against Modi, even the DMK Scion Stalin has appreciated the TDP chief. It looks like Babu is slowly earning support from people beyond the Telugu states.
