Naidu meets Shah, discusses increase in Assembly seats Senior Telangana Telugu Desam Party (TTDP) leader and party’s politburo member Mothukupalli Narasimhulu is likely to be named as Governor by the Narendra Modi Government in the next few days.

On Monday Mr. Naidu, who was in New Delhi to participate in the NDA meeting presided over by the Prime Minister, called on the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah and discussed, among other things, his desire to see his party leader as Governor of some State. According to a senior TDP functionary, Mr. Narasimhulu, who was also in New Delhi, subsequently joined Mr. Naidu at the meeting with the BJP president. Union Urban Development Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu reportedly told him that he was hopeful of a favourable decision soon by the Prime Minister. Mr. Narasimhulu has been associated with the TDP from the days of party founder N.T. Rama Rao and has been a Minister at the State level. Mr. Naidu had promised the Telangana leader a seat in the Rajya Sabha. However, it did not materialise due to poor show of TDP in 2014 general elections. BJP has an electoral alliance with the TDP.
