Are the squabbles in YSRCP a solution to the crisis in TD? The internal squabbles in YSRCP are giving hope to the Telugu Desam high command in solving the scarcity of efficient candidate in the coming assembly elections. Telugu Desam is struggling to get potential candidates at least in seventy assembly segments. Many of the leaders in various constituencies, who were in the ‘ticket aspirants’ list’, are new comers and not capable of getting votes on their own. The party should supply men, material and money to win in the election if party tickets are given to them. The party programmes are invisible in these segments and it is in the report given by Robin Sharma, election expert extending logistical support to the yellow party. The performance of the party programme “Idemi Kharma” was so poor in the 70 segments. The revolt of Kotamreddy Sridhar Reddy, Nellore Rural MLA, against YSRCP high command and announcing his intent to contest on the Telugu Desam ticket in the next elections is a blessing in disguise to the Naidu’s party. It is expected that the party may get a good candidate in Venkatagiri assembly segment in Nellore district.
