Jana Sena Least Bothered About Lagadapati’s Survey
Vijayawada: Former MP Lagadapati Rajgopal, popularly known as ‘Andhra Octopus’, comes out with a survey report whenever he is not in picture. His survey was correct a few times when late YSR was CM. But after that Rajgopal’s survey failed many times and left a question mark in its genuity.
A few months back, Rajgopal made a survey and stated that YSRCP will come to power. Now the latest buzz in political circles is his survey report on TDP which was done in November 2016.
As per his survey TDP will win 160 seats if party contests alone. If it allies with BJP, the number of seats would be restricted to 140 to 150 seats. His survey shows that TDP will win 23 Lok Sabha seats.
Jana Sena, which was launched by film actor Pawan kalyan will get only 3.9% vote share in 2019 elections, according to the alleged survey. After hearing about Ragopal’s survey, Jana Sena leaders are not ready to accept the outcome and they are rubbishing the survey. How can he change his survey within two months which predicted YSRCP’s win and now claim victory for the changed the TDP? Jana Sena mainly argues that one factor can change the total scenario in politics. One factor might work as negative for one party and positive for another.
But there is nothing visible which can result in a vote share swing towards TDP in the last two months and only Lagadapati can explain what made him to reverse the result. Is it because Lagadapati is eyeing the Vijayawada LS seat and preparing the ground to join the TDP? The fact that Lagadapati had met Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu at Amaravati recently and it was only after that meeting the so called survey report has been made public smells a rat.
