AP CM Chandrababu Naidu always claims that he holds the key to the Central Government. He had claimed he was the one who had actually made Dr APJ Abdul Kalam as President. He had also claimed credit for a lot of other things during the Vajpayee regime.
But, that’s a thing of the past. When Ram Nath Kovind was chosen, Modi-Amit Shah combine kept Chandrababu completely in the dark. He was informed only after everything else was finalised. Even when Venkaiah Naidu’s name was finalised, Chandrababu was not in the loop.
