Ganta faces intra-party discontent in Bhimili

Must read

Telugu Desam Party’s (TDP) Bheemunipatnam MLA candidate, Ganta Srinivasa Rao, has pledged to elevate the constituency to a model status within the State, promising comprehensive development and essential amenities. Rao announced plans for a bespoke manifesto tailored specifically for Bheemunipatnam, following consultations with local leaders and residents to address the unique needs of the area. Underlining the achievements of the TDP during his tenure from 2014 to 2019, Rao highlighted the significant investment of approximately Rs 45 crore in the development of Simhachalam. He reiterated his commitment to fostering growth and prosperity in the region by establishing the ‘Bheemunipatnam Develop-ment Forum’ aimed at harnessing collective efforts for strategic planning and execution of developmental projects.
Ganta’s confidence in Bheemili stems from what he perceives as favourable conditions on the ground. With a strong foothold in local body elections and unwavering support from the cadre, he believes Bheemili presents a promising battleground. Additionally, the prospect of an alliance with Janasena further bolsters his campaign, positioning him as a formidable contender in the upcoming polls. However, Rao’s candidacy announcement was not without controversy, as supporters of TDP’s Bheemunipatnam in-charge, Korada Raja Babu, voiced their discontent over the party’s decision not to allocate him the ticket. Expressing dismay at what they perceived as a snub despite Babu’s dedicated service to the party over the past five years, they called upon the TDP leadership to reconsider their choice.
Adding to the internal strife, followers of Jana Sena Party (JSP) Bheemunipatnam in-charge, Panchakarma Sandeep, echoed similar sentiments, lamenting the party’s omission in seat allocation despite Sandeep’s tireless efforts and vocal opposition against governmental injustices. The dissatisfaction among party ranks underscores the challenges facing TDP in maintaining unity amidst growing dissent.
Meanwhile, Bheemuni-patnam’s YSRCP MLA candidate, Muttamsetti Srinivasa Rao, continued his election campaign in Ward 89, further intensifying the electoral landscape in the constituency.
As the electoral battle heats up, the political landscape in Bheemunipatnam remains tumultuous, with competing promises of development and simmering discontent within party ranks setting the stage for a fiercely contested election.
