How will Naidu construct his national political context in 2019?

TDP locating itself in right national political context was critical for  2014 mandate. This was the time when people of the state strongly felt that they   needed centre's handholding. At a time when Modi wave was sweeping the nation, Chandrababu joining NDA made perfect political sense for TDP. 

 

But, now Naidu took a calculated political risk by walking out of NDA ministry which would eventually lead to exit from BJP led national alliance. He cannot join congress initiated grand opposition alliance as he accused the party to be the  villain of bifurcation. Third Front is colourless, shapeless, odourless and tasteless. How will Naidu construct his national political context in 2019 is a test for his political sagacity.
