Almost all Telugu Desam Party (TDP) leaders, including ministers and Members of Parliament (MPs) countered Jagan’s big move to appoint political analyst, Prashant Kishore, and publicly portray him as the person who would lead the party to victory. Nara Lokesh, Yanamala Ramakrishnudu and C.P.Ramesh, blasted Jagan for his decision, and said that he had no confidence in himself. That is why he has appointed Prashant Kishore, they pointed out. Also, Jagan is said to be paying Rs. 3.5 crores to Prashant Kishore for his survey and suggestions. From where is he getting this huge amount, C.P. Ramesh asked.
