As elections are nearby political equations are changing vigorously in Vijayawada expecting a triangular fight for Vijayawada MP seat, Vijayawada MP seat is allotted to Kesineni Nani from TDP, Potluri Vara Prasad from YSRCP and Muttamsetty Sudhakar from Janasena.BJP and Congress party candidates are negligible.
TDP contestant Kesineni Nani entered into politics when Chiranjeevi’s Praja Rajyam Party in 2008. But he came out of PRP later and made allegations on Chiranjeevi. In 2014, Kesineni Nani contested on TDP Ticket from Vijayawada Lok Sabha Constituency and won by over 75,000 votes majority against YSRCP’s Vijay Sai Reddy. He is very much confident in winning due to his major development activities in Vijayawada region.
Potluri Venkata Prasad (PVP) a businessman got MP ticket immediately after joining YSRCP, unlike many other leaders who did not get the ticket despite serving the party for years. Dasari Jai Ramesh, also joined YSRCP expecting Vijayawada ticket but didn’t get the ticket.PVP is also confident in winning that the surveys are in favour of YCP.
Muttamsetty Sudhakar is a former Lawyer. He got the ticket based on social equations. While both Kesineni and PVP belong to the same community(Khamma) that dominates Vijayawada politics, Muthamsetti Sudhakar belongs to other community that has a huge presence in Vijayawada politics. Given the reports of silent voting for Janasena in some constituencies, he is also looking strong.
Hence we expect a triangular fight in Vijayawada Lok Sabha segment.
