YSRCP not contesting in Gannavaram?
YSRCP has ignored many top political leaders in 2014 elections after they asked the party to assure them a party ticket to join the party. And after 3 years, the whole scenario is upside down. It is learned that YSRCP is short of contestants to contest on behalf of their party in like Gannavaram, Krishna District. It was rumored that the current MLA of Gannavaram, Vallabhaneni Vamsi of TDP was eyeing for a place in YSRCP in the past. And now with the current scenario, it looks like YSRCP has no one to even contest against him.
It was highly anticipated that Dhutta Ramachandra Rao, a close one too late YS Rajasekhar Reddy would be contesting from Gannavaram. Ramachandra Rao has lost in 2014 elections after contesting from the same place. Recently, Ramachandra Rao has stated to the YSRCP high command that he has no interest in contesting 2019 Assembly elections, and he would wholeheartedly support anyone who shall be nominated by the party to contest from Gannavaram.
Recently, even Buchepalli Siva Prasad Reddy dropped himself from contesting in 2019 Darsi Constituency. If the same trend of ‘dropouts’ continues in YSRCP, it would be a really hard time them to find the 225 contestants for the 225 constituencies in 2019 AP Assembly elections.
