The TDP and Congress parties have decided to discontinue their alliance after neither party benefited from the alliance during the recently held Telangana state elections.

According to sources, AP CM Chandra Babu told Congress president Rahul Gandhi that TDP would extend its support to the national party in the general elections but would contest alone in the AP State elections as the people are still angry with Congress for bifurcating the state.

Political analysts point out that both the parties are better off as independent contestants as their alliance could affect the voters’ opinion like it did in the Telangana elections.
