Even as several suspicions are being raised over Operation Garuda theory propounded by actor and Telugu Desam Party supporter Sivaji, another film personality Tammareddy Bharadwaja came out with his own Garuda Puranam.
According to a pro-TDP television channel, the popular film maker claimed to have got some specific information from a senior official in the Prime Minister’s Office that the Bharatiya Janata Party-led NDA government at the Centre is all set to commence its Operation B shortly against TDP president and Andhra Pradesh chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu. Needless to say Operation B means Operation Babu.
The channel, quoting Tammineni, said the BJP leadership is very much worried over the aggressive moves of Naidu in consolidating the grand alliance of all the opposition parties in the country and his series of meetings with top leaders including Rahul Gandhi, Akhilesh Yadav, Farooq Abdullah, Sharad Pawar, Mayawati, Deve Gowda, Kumaraswamy and Stalin in the last few days.
“In the recent by-elections in Karnataka, the BJP got a reliable information that the Telugu voters have voted against the BJP because of Naidu’s aggressive onslaught against the Centre I general and Narendra Modi in particular. So, it has decided to corner Naidu and see that he does not come out of Andhra Pradesh,” the channel said.
Tammareddy got the information that as part of Operation B, the central agencies like Income Tax, Enforcement Directorate and CBI would target the TDP leaders, one after the other in order to put psychological pressure on Naidu.
He disclosed a list of TD leaders whom these agencies would target in the coming days.
They include ministers P Narayana, Ganta Srinivasa Rao, Prathipati Pulla Rao, Sidha Raghava Rao, Rajya Sabha MP CM Ramesh, Rajahmundry MP Maganti Murali Mohan, MLAs Bode Prasad, Kommalapati Sridhar, Burugupalli Sesha Rao and Alapati Rajendra Prasad etc.
Let us see how far this latest Babu Puranam becomes a reality.
