Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader M. Venkaiah Naidu arrived in the Andhra Pradesh capital Tuesday in an apparent attempt to woo N. Chandrababu Naidu's Telugu Desam Party (TDP).

The BJP leader, however, refused to name any party or leader with whom he will be holding negotiations here.

“I am not suggesting the name of any party. Any party which is willing to support (BJP leader L.K.) Advaniji, which is ready to support the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), is welcome,” Venkaiah Naidu told reporters here.

“There are a number of people inclined towards us but we do not want to name any party or any leader at the moment. We will wait till the time the elections are over and counting is over on (May) 16th,” he added.

The BJP has appointed Venkaiah Naidu as the chief negotiator in Andhra Pradesh and the party is hoping to bring the TDP into the NDA fold after wooing the Telangana Rashtra Samiti.
