The BJP has just carried out a surgical strike on Chandrababu Naidu, in what is now being called the big Andhra coup. Four TDP lawmakers from Rajya Sabha have merged with the BJP - the total strength of TDP in Rajya Sabha was six - so the anti-defection law does not apply here. This is being seen as the big move to add some Rajya Sabha numeric muscle for the BJP ahead of the tabling and passage of the Triple Talaq bill. In PM Modi's last term too, Rajya Sabha was the problem, but even now, the strength is not enough to sail through with legislation. So the question that we are asking on the show, are we to expect more coups as the session goes along?
