In fact, Chittoor MLA Arani Srinivasu was first selected by Jagan as Rajya Sabha candidate. In Rayalaseema, tickets were denied to Srinivas belonging to the Balija community.
CM Jagan: In the matter of Rajya Sabha elections, Jagan is taking steps with a clear strategy. He has taken the results of the MLC elections held in March last year as a lesson. That is why it is expected to ensure that this mistake does not happen. YCP announced candidates for Rajya Sabha seats. The names of YV Subbareddy, Meda Raghunath Reddy and Golla Baburao have been finalized. Two Reddy community leaders and another SC leader were selected. On the other hand, it seems that the Telugu Desam Party is fielding the SC leader.
In fact, Chittoor MLA Arani Srinivasu was first selected by Jagan as Rajya Sabha candidate. In Rayalaseema, tickets were denied to Srinivas belonging to the Balija community. Vijayananda Reddy, who has allegations and cases of red sandalwood smuggling, was given the ticket in his place. It was for this reason that everyone thought that Srinivas would be given a Rajya Sabha seat. But at the last moment it was allotted to Raghunath Reddy of Rajampet, Kadapa district. After the ticket was denied to the sitting MLA here, he is satisfied by giving the Rajya Sabha to his brother.
But it is clear that the choice of Golla Baburao was strategic. The sittings were changed. Some were relocated. Others were left aside. SC MLAs are the majority among those sidelined. They are all angry with YCP. Expressing dissatisfaction with Jagan's behavior. If they all want to, they can show their glory in Rajya Sabha voting. That is why it seems that Jagan strategically fielded the SC candidate. But Golla Baburao has already once expressed his dissatisfaction in front of the Chief Minister's office. Jagan expressed his displeasure at the manner of Jagan, who was deeply upset because he was not included in the cabinet. Inappropriate comments were also made. Due to this, Golla Baburao was denied the Payakaraopet ticket. Exceptionally elected to the Rajya Sabha. On the other hand, it seems that TDP will field a Dalit candidate. If the YCP MLAs who did not get tickets favor the TDP candidate, Baburao is certain to lose. Analysts are of the opinion that if the same thing happens, on the one hand, the propaganda that the Dalit candidate has been defeated, on the other hand, the YCP will be satisfied that Golla Baburao has been sent home. And let's see how much truth there is in it.
