Shilpa Mohan Reddy Quits TDP, To Join YSRCP On 14

First jolt for TDP in Kurnool district was administered when Shilpa Mohan reddy, disgusted with Naidu, decided to join YSRCP on June 14th.

Kurnool: Shilpa Mohan Reddy ended the speculations and decided to join YSRCP in second week of this month, probably June 14. After a series of meetings with his close aides and followers, Shilpa Mohan Reddy finally decided to say goodbye to the ruling party, TDP.

There was a Tom and Jerry game between AP CM Naidu and Shilpa Mohan Reddy on Nandyala seat and a disgusted Shilpa decided to leave Naidu aside and decided to hug YSRCP.

This is a first major blow to the ruling party after elections as Shilpa is one of the prominent leaders of the TDP in Kurnool district.

Due to the sudden demise of Bhuma Nagi Reddy, by-poll in Nadyala has become necessary and Bhuma’s family members expected the seat from TDP and Naidu is also compelled to give seat with an idea of encasing the sympathy factor. Later on , political changes witnessed in Kurnool district with Akhila Priya joining cabinet and started aiming guns against Jagan with the help of Naidu.

Shilpa Mohan Reddy who contested against Bhuma on the TDP ticket in 2014 expected the same from Naidu which did not happen until now. With patience running out, Mohan Reddy decided to quit TDP and formally join YSRCP on June 14th.

Interesting point in this turn is Bhuma contested on YSRC against Shilpa from TDP in previous elections, but now Shilpa getting shifted into YSRCP, we have to see whio will be TDP’s candidate for by-poll.

Recently at the party plenary in Kurnool, Katasani Rami reddy declared that Rajgopla Reddy will contest the Nandyala by-poll on YSRCP ticket. This is a rude shock to Akhila Priya who was trying to make the contest unanimous by making use of the sentiment in the name of her deceased father Bhuma Nagi Reddy.

As per ruling party sources, Bhuma Brahmananda Reddy’s name is as good as confirmed as a TDP candidate. This move by YSRCP could not be digested by TDP as Rajgopal reddy who is Nandyala YSRC in-charge is father-in-law of TDP’s candidate Brahmananda Reddy.

This by-poll is taking twists and turns and the battle will be more interesting and the result will give the winning party an upper hand in Kurnool district politics as far as the 2019 elections are concerned.

Nandyal By-poll : Naidu Tense

AP CM Naidu is tense and started wooing different communities who initially felt it will be a cakewalk for TDP with the help of ‘sympathy’ factor.

Kurnool: AP CM Naidu’s calculations look to be going wrong as time fleets in Nandyal. Naidu who thought that it will be an easy win for TDP after announcing Brahmanada Reddy, from Bhuma family, as the candidate, is now contemplating additional ways and means to achieve success.

From day one, there is no clarity for Naidu to whom the ticket should be given and how to face the opposition in by-election. Nandyal voters, particularly Bhuma camp, have a vague impression that Naidu’s psychological pressure had led to their leader’s death.

Bhuma, who was misguided without giving ministry after joining the ruling party, had to face pressure from his followers for migrating from YSRCP to TDP. All these factors are in mind of Nandyal voters who are looking for a cross vote to teach a lesson to the TDP.

Recent migration of senior TDP leader, ex-minister Shilpa Mohan Reddy into YSRCP is another blow for ruling party in Kurnool district.

Keeping all these developments in mind, Naidu started to woo voters. The party’s survey also predicted that the fight is going to be tough.

Foundation stone for housing, airport at Orvakallu, in a hurry, Iftar at Nandyal with Government funds, all this flurry of activity is part of the TDP campaign.

At last, wooing councillors of Shilpa group clearly shows how tense TDP is on Nandyal by-poll. We have to see how opposition party counters all these moves to come into the contest and fight against the ruling party.

Nandyala By-poll: YSRCP Gives Shock To TDP

YSRCP president Jagan Mohan Reddy appears to have shock both the TDP groups led by Shilpa Mohan Reddy and Akhila Priya by announcing the candidature of Rajagopal Reddy for Nandyala by-poll. He is father-in-law of Brahmananda Reddy who is supposed to be the TDP candidate.

Hyderabad: Nandyala by-poll is surely turning into an interesting battle in coming days with the main parties adopting tactics over announcement of candidates.

At the party plenary in Kurnool, Katasani Rami reddy declared that Rajgopla Reddy will contest the Nandyala by-poll on YSRCP ticket. This is a rude shock to Akhila Priya who was trying to make the contest unanimous by making use of the sentiment in the name of her deceased father Bhuma Nagi Reddy.

As per ruling party sources, Brahmananda Reddy’s name is as good as confirmed as a TDP candidate. This move by YSRCP could not be digested by TDP as Rajgopal reddy who is Nandyala YSRC in-charge is father-in-law of TDP’s candidate Brahmananda Reddy.

On the flip side, this move has come as a shock to Shilpa Mohan Reddy also. If Naidu denies ticket to him, Shilpa is ready to plunge into YSRCP. But Jagan kept a check to both Shilpa and Bhuma groups by bringing Rajgopal into picture with one shot two birds.

This by-poll is taking twists and turns and the battle will be more interesting and the result will give the winning party an upper hand in Kurnool district politics as far as the 2019 elections are concerned.

Clamour Grows Loud And strong for Nandyal Assembly Seat

While the Bhooma faction is claiming that someone from their party would contest, former minister Shilpa Mohan Reddy is not ready to relent.

Hyderabad: Clamour for Nandyal assembly seat which fell vacant with the death of Bhooma Nagireddy is growing stronger day by day. With the former housing minister Shilpa Mohan Reddy, determined to contest from the seat, things appear to get murkier in Telugu Desam Party.  Infighting already started in the party over the seat. According to sources, if TDP doesn’t allocate him the seat, Shilpa Mohan Reddy might defect into other party or might contest as an independent.

Already, the YSR Congress Party president announced that they would be fielding their candidate in the by-elections. Although, it is a tradition that when a sitting legislator passes away, no other party generally fields its candidates so as to allow his successor win easily. But, given the events that took place after the death of Bhooma in the Andhra Pradesh Assembly and the criticism Jagan faced, it can be considered natural that he made a decision to field a candidate.

The Bhooma faction is claiming that it is a member of their family that is going to contest in the election, Shilpa Mohanreddy is literally threatening CM Naidu that if he is not allotted the seat, he is giving indications that he would not hesitate to defect to another party (read YSRCP).  claiming that it is only Allagadda which belongs to Bhooma family, he is making it very clear that Nandyal is his. He also organised a meeting with his followers and workers. Asserting that the TDP will lose the seat if Naidu allocates it to Bhooma family, Shilpa is making preparations for the contest. However, the Nandyal leaders of YSRCP are not too happy with the turn of events.

Even the Telugu Desam party doesn’t appear very enthusiastic about allocating Shilpa the seat, as he lost to Bhooma earlier. Above all, there is a lot of sympathy towards Bhooma family due to the untimely and sudden death of Nagireddy. Another factor for Naidu hesitating to allocate the seat is that Mohan Reddy is considered as a political rival of Bhooma.

Before the controversy between two Reddy leaders in Kadapa is resolved, the storm in Nandyal has become a headache to the high command

Jagan hints at fielding candidate for Nandyala by-poll

DARA GOPI

Amaravati: YSR Congress president Y S Jaganmohan Reddy had hinted at fielding his party candidate for the by-election to be held for Nandyala Assembly constituency following the death of sitting MLA Bhuma Nagi Reddy.

In an informal interaction with the media persons, Jaganmohan Reddy said that the YSR Congress had won the Nandyala Assembly seat in the 2014 elections. The voters have backed the YSR Congress against the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), he said and condemned the legislator switching over loyalties to the ruling party. He alleged that Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu had engineered the defections by making promises, some in terms of money and some in terms of Cabinet berth. “Bhuma Nagi Reddy was promised a Cabinet berth in return to the defection. Chandrababu Naidu did not fulfill his promise but had put heavy pressure on Nagi Reddy for the MLC elections,” he alleged.

Jaganmohan Reddy said that the voters of Nandyala were behind the YSR Congress and would repeat the 2014 results by defeating the representatives of the defected and deceased legislator. The YSR Congress is planning in a big way in the Kurnool politics and had brought in the strong Gangula family into the party. The party had also made Gangula Prabhakar Reddy MLC in a short period after the family joined the party.

When the YSR Congress decides to field its candidate for the by-election, it would be mostly from the Gangula family or the one recommended by the family. More over victory in the by-election would be so important for the YSR Congress as that would reflect on the series of defections that the party had suffered over the 2016.

On its part, the ruling TDP is likely to field the son or the second daughter of the Bhuma couple. Son Vikhyat Reddy and younger daughter Mounika Reddy might be the choice of the ruling party. Whoever is in the fray, the election would be a tough task and very important for the ruling TDP too as that would have impact on the defection of the remaining 20 legislators.

Jagan, Naidu Blame Each Other For Bhuma’s Death

Nandyala: MLA Bhuma Nagi Reddy’s sudden death has led to a war of words between Opposition leader Jagan and Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu. Bhuma was elected on YSR ticket from Nandyala constituency in 2014. He switched over to the ruling party a year ago. Reddy died of massive cardiac arrest on Sunday. AP Assembly was adjourned for a day after paying homage to the leader.

It was Chandrababu Naidu, who invited Bhuma into TDP with a promise to make him a minister within three days. Its almost a year now and the promise was not fulfilled. The non-implementation of the promise lead to Bhuma’s depression, Jagan alleged.

Jagan said that his party will field a candidate as the seat belongs to YSRCP technically. TDP should not field a candidate, Jagan added.

Within 24 hours after death of Bhuma, Naidu called Bhuma’s daughter Akhil Priya to Assembly which shows lack of sensitivity on the part of Babu, Jagan said.

He said the main reason for boycotting Assembly was to maintain dignity of demised leader. If he speaks in the Assembly during condolence motion on facts and what transpired between Naidu and Bhuma it would have amounted to defaming the departed leader, Jagan felt.

CM Chandrababu has hit back strongly at Jagan saying that it was Jagan who met Governor for opposing the move to induct Bhuma Nagi Reddy into the cabinet. Jagan was responsible for pushing Bhuma into depression, alleged Naidu. jagan has no human values, Naidu said.

Naidu said he did not force Akhila Priya to attend the House and she felt its her duty to be present in the House when a condolence motion on her father was being discussed, he added.

Y.S. Jagan, This Is Not The Way!

Amaravati: Leader Of opposition, YSRCP President Y.S. Jagan’s attitude towards late Bhuma Nagi Reddy’s homage in Assembly led to criticism from political analysts.

Assembly started with a homage to late Bhuma Nagi Reddy which was boycotted by YSRCP, stating that the death was due to the internal pressure brought about by CM Chandrababu Naidu by objecting to Nagi Reddy’s inclusion in the cabinet.

Nobody knows what the exact reason for Bhuma’s death was, but the reaction and politicising the issue on day one was not at all a good move by Jagan, according to analysts.

Bhuma, who won on YSRCP, recently shifted to ruling party with a berth confirmation in Cabinet expansion which will take place after Ugadi. Sudden demise gave a big blow to party and Bhuma’s personal cadre in Kurnool and Ananthpur districts.

Bhuma Nagi Reddy’s daughter, sitting MLA Akhila Priya is expected to be inducted into the cabinet after the demise of Nagi Reddy, say TDP sources.

But Sakshi Media, which telecasted continuously that death of Bhuma was due to pressure created by Chandrababu by not taking him into cabinet gave a chance for Jagan to raise the issue in Assembly on Tuesday. The time he raised the issue was not appropriate when all members are paying homage and Bhuma’s daughter Akhila Priya was sitting in the Assembly. Jagan should have waited for some more days to raise the issue, political analysts strongly felt.
