Telugu Desam Party Visakhapatnam South MLA Vasupalli Ganesh Kumar met Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy today in Amaravati. Before the yellow party MLAs Vallabhaneni Vamsi, Karanam Balaram and Maddali Giri dump cycle and increase support to the national party.
As per YSR Congress’ latest move to avoid disqualification for defectors, Vasupalli did not wear the YSR Congress Kanduva but his sons did. However, speaking to the media after the meeting, he continued to say that he had joined the YSR Congress. TDP retained its hold in Visakhapatnam city in the 2019 general elections while YSR Congress swept the entire state.
Four of the four seats under the city went to the TDP. However, party leaders say the situation has changed for the better since Visakhapatnam became the executive capital. When Vasupalli joined the party, Vijayasai Reddy said, “There is no doubt that the TDP will be destroyed in Visakhapatnam.”
If true, YSR Congress would have directly accepted him into the party and gone to an election. Normally, the ruling party will have some advantage in the election but YSR Congress is not willing to take any risk. This means that the YSR Congress is finding it difficult to manage Vishakapatnam.
