In a big blow to YSRCP chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy, Telugudesam Party (TDP) won in the MLC election under local bodies category.
BTech Ravi of TDP won over YS Vivekananda Reddy of YSRCP in this election which has been taken prestigiously by both ruling TDP and Opposition YSRCP. The damage for Jagan has only further increased with this defeat as his party candidate is his own uncle.
As long as YS Rajashekara Reddy was there, his family was seen as invincible in Kadapa and all over Andhra Pradesh. But defeat of YSR’s own brother, that too in their own area, is seen a setback to YS Jagan.
“YSRCP has more number of local bodies representatives in Kadapa than TDP. In spite of that they lost elections. This shows that YSRCP leaders do not have confidence on YS Jagan,” said Satish Reddy senior TDP leader from Kadapa after TDP’s victory.
TDP has won even in Kurnool and Nellore districts for MLC elections under local bodies quota.
