The real reasons behind change in AP BJP chief
With a focus to strengthen the BJP in Andhra Pradesh, the party top leaders had appointed former minister Kanna Lakshminarayana as the state BJP chief prior to the 2019 elections. But the BJP did not win a single seat under Kanna leadership. There are allegations that Kanna was working under the direction of TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu and also misused money given towards election expenditure. Moreover, the BJP high command was reportedly unhappy for not focusing on building cadre and not getting along with other party leaders. Several factors have played in favour Somu Veerraju in appointing him as the AP BJP chief.
