Chandrababu Naidu Capital Bond Scheme: A strategy to rouse anti center sentiment
Chandrababu Naidu called for crowd funding for the construction of capital Amaravathi. Earlier he initiated My Brick-My Amaravthi scheme. Though the ruling party calls it an attempt to enlist public participation for the construction of people's capital , the timing and the intent of the proposal clearly reveals that this is a strategy to rouse people's sentiment against the center. The capital narrative helped Naidu to dramatically alter his political fortunes in 2014. Thus, the capital bond scheme is part of Chandrababu Naidu's politics woven around Telugu pride, bifurcation narrative and capital dream. Chandrababu Naidu has mastered the art of simultaneously selling a nightmare(bifurcation) and a titillating dream (capital). This assiduously executed strategy helped Naidu not only win 2014 mandate, but, also ensured a political edge over the opposition.
