BJP National President Amit Shah said to be unhappy with AP BJP President Haribabu. He told Haribabu on two occasions over phone to take steps for strengthening the party. But, Haribabu did not make efforts as told by Amit Shah. But, Amit Shah is hesitant to remove Haribabu from his post as he is close to Venkaiah Naidu. Instead, Amit Shah has been encouraging MLC Somu Veerraju. The MLC has been criticising the TDP government alleging it is providing ineffective rule. Meanwhile, Haribabu is aspiring to become Minister with Venkaiah's support once his term comes to an end.
