Here’s another troubling development for the TDP. Kakinada MP and TDP leader in the Lok Sabha Thota Narasimham is all set to join the YSRCP. Thota and his wife Vani have already met YSRCP chief YS Jagan. YS Jagan has agreed to give party ticket to Vani and she might in all probability contest from either Peddapuram or Jaggampet for the AP Assembly.
Meanwhile, another senior leader and MP candidate Magunta Srinivasulu Reddy is also planning to leave the TDP. The party is making last-ditch effort to stop him from leaving the TDP and joining the YSRCP. Srinivasulu Reddy was asked to contest for the Ongole MP seat. But, he has told the TDP leadership that he would not contest the polls this time.
The party has sent Ongole MLA Damacharla Janardhan to talk to Srinivasa Reddy and convince h, im not to join the YSRCP.
