Differences have surfaced among the BJP leaders in Andhra Pradesh. Two groups have been formed in AP BJP. One group consisting of new BJP leaders and another group containing old BJP leaders. It has become a headache for the BJP high command. Though AP BJP State President Hari Babu has tried to pacify some of the protesting leaders, the situation remained disappointing. The altercation between Manikyala Rao and Laxmi Prasada Raja has also made Hari Babu upset. It is also alleged that BJP leader and minister Kamineni Srinivas Rao is against the principles of BJP.
