For the last few days, Anaparthy TDP in charge Nallamilli Ramakrishna Reddy has been protesting the decision to give the seat to BJP.

Nallamilli Ramakrishna Reddy was troubled so much by the Jagan Government with cases and even an arrest. Nallamilli is shell-shocked about the seat going to the BJP.

M Shiva Krishnam Raju who was announced as the BJP candidate makes things much worse. Some of his Twitter posts are degrading Balakrishna, Telugu Desam Party, and Janasena. These posts have gone viral and are irritating the TDP cadre.

There is massive support for Nallamilli from the TDP cadre and they are urging him to contest as an Independent. It looks like Vote Transfer is highly unlikely from TDP to the BJP in this case.

Meanwhile, there is an interesting update from Nallamilli Ramakrishna Reddy’s X account.

He says that the BJP leadership offered him Anaparthy ticket in case he joined the party. He also added that he declined the offer and pledged to continue in TDP itself.

We will have to see if the BJP relents and offers the seat to the TDP.

Anaparthy Parliament segment will have a huge impact on the winning prospects of the Rajahmundry Parliament segment. Anaparthy has Reddy Community voting the highest in the state after Pulivendula.

If there is no right candidate here, there is a chance of cross-voting and that will impact the chances of Rajahmundry Parliament‘s winning.

In 2009, TDP MP candidate Murali Mohan got around 50,000 majority in six Assembly segments of Rajahmundry. In the Anaparthy constituency alone, Congress candidate Undavalli got more than 60,000 majority changing the date.

So, having a good candidate in Anaparthy is very important.
