Need TDP leaders for CM’s hometown

TDP leaders from Chandragiri constituency received a huge shock after Galla Aruna Kumari asked the party supremo Chandra Babu to look for alternatives to contest from the constituency. Interestingly, she added that none of her family members are interested in contesting from the party’s ticket.

Our sources revealed that Aruna Kumari was fed up with the group politics ever since Nara Lokesh made an entry into the internal politics. Reportedly, Nara Lokesh is intending to allocate the party’s duties to his close friend Pulivarthi Nani who has been with the party for a long time. Nani has been very active in district politics and is a renowned financier for the yellow party.

However, nothing is confirmed as of now, but a formal announcement is expected soon. Aruna Kumari lost in the 2014 elections to YCP candidate, Chevireddy Bhaskar Reddy with a margin of 4000 votes. This itself was a shocking result for TDP as the party failed in the CM’s hometown. It needs to be seen if they will be successful this time around.
