Parties gear up for reserved seats as AP poll scene hots up

Must read

In a heated political arena, Andhra Pradesh braces itself for an intense battle as parties lock horns over reserved seats, particularly those designated for Scheduled Castes (SCs) and Scheduled Tribes (STs). Telugu Desam Party (TDP) strategically positions itself in the race for SC reserved seats, announcing its candidacy in key constituencies including Amalapuram, Bapatla, and Chittoor. Notable contenders include retired IPS officer Tenne T Krishna Prasad in Bapatla and Harish, son of former Lok Sabha Speaker late GMC Balayogi, in Amalapuram.
The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is no stranger to the fray. Dr Varaprasada Rao, a retired IAS officer, has taken the helm in Tirupati, aiming to make a mark for the saffron party. Moreover, Kothapalli Geetha, a financially formidable force, is set to contest from the Araku ST seat, bolstering BJP’s presence. The alliance between TDP, Jana Sena, and BJP reveals a calculated distribution of seats.
Jana Sena sets its sights on Polavaram and Palakomda, while BJP stakes its claim in Araku Valley. The surprising support from the Bhagat community for Ramesh Naidu in the Paderu seat adds an intriguing dimension to the political landscape.
In SC reserved constituencies, a diverse blend of seasoned leaders and emerging talent emerges. Established figures like Kondru Murali and Vam Galapudi share the stage with newcomers like Vijay Bonela, signalling a dynamic shift in political dynamics. Recent tragic events, such as the untimely demise of Dr. Sudhakar and the subsequent killing of his driver Subrahmanyam, become potent political tools for the alliance. They aim to leverage these incidents to sway public sentiment in their favour as the electoral battle intensifies.
As the political temperature rises, parties spare no effort in their quest for victory in the reserved seats.
With strategic alliances, meticulous candidate selections, and the shrewd leveraging of recent events, the battle for supremacy in Andhra Pradesh’s political landscape promises to be nothing short of riveting.
