Anantapur: Even after many exercises to resist Telugu Desam government over apathetic policies and corruption, YSRC is not confident about majority number of MLA seats in Anantapur district.
As on today, the internal surveys of the party reportedly opined that peculiar situation prevailed in Anantapur district unlike other districts where YSRC was having strong hold in hopeful number of segments. Internal bickering among the aspirants and feeble situation for the party in several segments reportedly forced the high command to concentrate more on Anantapur district.
Sources from the party revealed that survey reports alerted the high command to make leadership changes in several mandals to compete with Telugu Desam.
In the last elections, YSRC had won in Urava-konda and Kadiri Assembly segments while TD won in 12 Assembly segments and 2 Lok Sabha seats.
However, Kadiri MLA Chand Bhasha was also defected to TD two years ago. While TD had strong hold in several segments, survey reports suggested party leadership to stren-gthen party at various levels to fight with TD in general elections.
Sources revealed that as on today’s situation party position was imp-roved only to some extent and hoping 6 Assembly segments as against total of 14 segments.
A senior leader from the party observed internal bickering and differences were further causing worry for the high command during finalisation of candidates. For instance, Anantapur urban Assembly segment was reportedly facing tough situation following differences among the leaders. About four aspirants were united and opposing senior leader and former MP Ananta Venkatrmi Reddy for MLA candidature of urban segment.
Even during recent visit and party meeting of Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy the leaders led activities on their own. Tough competition has been situated for Anantapur urban segment. In addition, YSRC targeted the TD’s fort, Hindupur Assembly segment with a strategy to field minority candidate against film star turned politician Nandamuri Balakrishna.
YSRC incharge Naveen Nischal was not happy with the high command as he led party for more than four-and-a-half years. The survey teams were also studying consequences and impact of Jana Sena along with left parties on YSRC or TD during triangle fight.
