Chandrababu Naidu should be made President – TDP Leader Venkatesh

Telugu Desam Party leader TG Venkatesh opined that CM Chandrababu Naidu should be made the President and IT Minister Nara Lokesh be made the Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister.

As the President of India Pranab Mukherjee’s term is nearing completion, there has been a great debate on who’s going to be in fray for the next President.

With the likes of Advani, Venkaiah from BJP have ruled out their chances for the country’s top post, naturally all eyes are on who’s going to be the next President. Given BJP and NDA’s landslide majority and even many of Opposition parties expressed their support to NDA, it turned out to be more interesting that who’ll be PM Modi’s choice.

Interestingly, AP CM Chandrababu Naidu’s name has been propped up. Although it’s far from reality and Naidu won’t evince interest, none other than his own party senior leaders expressing the elevation of Chandrababu for the President post.

Looks like, Venkatesh has made these remarks to gain marks from junior boss and future leader Nara Lokesh in order to be in the good books of both Naidu, Lokesh. Given that Naidu himself had given up PM post when he had got a chance, vouching for him for the President is certainly laugh evoking. Probably, TG should find other ways to impress his party leaders instead of making such statements
