Kadapa, May 13
The group politics in Kadapa district has become a headache for AP Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu. He was able to cajole and convince leaders of all region but not those of Kadapa.
Telugu Desam Party leaders of Andhra Pradesh are going on one route but that of Kadapa are treading a separate path. However the senior leaders explained them and made efforts to change their behavior, they have not changed. Whenever they meet Chandrababu Naidu, they have to take class from him.
Naidu plans to prevent YSRCP chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy in the next elections. He is hatching plans to win more seats in YS Jagan’s quotary. He showed guidelines to the party leaders several times but there was no use.
Rajya Sabha MP CM Ramesh went to the party cadre meeting arranged by Ramasubba Reddy’s group in Jammalamadugu in the recent times. Ramasubba Reddy’s followers tried to attack CM Ramesh with chairs, forcing him to leave the place immediately. Later Ramasubba Reddy convinced his followers.
There is no harmony between the party leaders in Prodduturu. Leaders of two groups resorted to fist fight for municipal chairman post. Varadarajula Reddy’s group played key role in this fight and party seniors, following Naidu’s orders, are enquiring into the matter.
In this regard, Chandrababu Naidu called Varadarajula Reddy and Linga Reddy groups to Vijayawada and chided both the parties. He suggested to win the municipal chairman post with joint efforts. But there was no change in them, instead internal rivalry was increased.
The group politics have set up separate camps and shifting councilors who support them. It is the first time that two groups of same party setting up two camps in Prodduturu.
Same situation is prevailing in the ten assembly seats in the district. Internal fights are common sight among TDP leaders.
District leader Adinarayana Reddy, district in-charge minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao and Parliament in-charge Somireddy Chandramohan Reddy are frequently visiting the district but failed to bring unity among the party leaders in the district.
