Popular industrialist and film producer Potluri Varaprasad aka PVP is all set to join the YSRCP on Wednesday. If the YSRCP sources are to be believed, he could be made the YSRCP candidate for the Vijayawada Lok Sabha seat. PVP, a native of Krishna district, is quite interested in politics and has tried to contest in 2014 too. Then he was in the YSRCP. But, when it became clear that the YSRCP may not give the ticket to him, he joined the Jana Sena. But, the Jana Sena did not contest in the 2014 elections. As a result, his effort became a wasted one.
This time around, he is re-joining the YSRCP and hopes to get Vijayawada Lok Sabha seat. Meanwhile, there is some confusion within the YSRCP leadership about Vijayawada Lok Sabha seat. Dasari Jai Ramesh, another former TDP leader, too wants Vijayawada. His brother and former TDP MLA Dasari Balavardhana Rao too has joined the YSRCP recently. If Jai Ramesh does not get the party ticket, what would he do? Will he rebel or stay in the YSRCP to support PVP.
Meanwhile, another TDP MP P Ravindranath too is trying for Amalapuram seat, which is reserved for the Dalits. He too is yet to get a confirmation, sources say.
