Chandrababu Naidu seems to be very desperate. He anyhow or by any means wants to gain Narendra Modi's favour and seems to be dying to get back into Modi's good books.
Being friendly with Narendra Modi and the BJP is the only way to save himself from the Jagan Juggernaut and possible CBI probes into his affairs, is what Babu feels and this is the reason he wants that. By each passing day and those who sailed with the party all these years are turning their face away from the party and are eagerly flocking towards the BJP, the TDP is getting weaker.
Anytime soon, there appears to be no chance of reviving the party's prospects as TDP is now out of power. Several big names of the party have already ditched him and many more are looking for the right time to follow suit, to add to his woes. To ensure that Lokesh and Chandrababu are ensnared in cases and are put behind the bars the BJP government at the Centre is working overtime, at the same time. The only thing that can save him at this stage is friendship with Narendra Modi, is what Babu feels right now.
