Devineni Uma: TDP to tie up with two parties in AP The alliance is more important to the Telugu Desam Party than the two parties. The upcoming elections are a matter of life and death for the party. That is why Chandrababu called the party leaders to prepare for sacrifices. It was decided that some people would not have seats. It is remarkable that there are seniors in such a list. Chandrababu has already told one or two leaders that the campaign is going on. It seems that Chandrababu gave a shock to senior leader Devine Uma. It is noteworthy that information has been given that Mylavaram ticket will not be given this time.
Devineni Uma is the closest leader to Chandrababu. Lokesh was also recognized as a favorite leader. Saying that such a leader has no ticket has become a hot topic in the party. Devineni Uma has been in politics since 1999. He entered politics after the death of his brother Devineni Venkataramana. In 1999, he won as MLA from Nandigama constituency. In 2004, he once again contested from the same constituency and won. Nandigama disappeared in 2009 with the re-distribution of constituencies. As a result, Uma who contested from Mylavaram constituency won the 2009 election. Uma contested from the same constituency in 2014 and also acted as a minister. In 2019, however, he lost to the YSP candidate Vasantha Krishna Prasad. Uma is expected to contest from Mylavaram constituency in this election as well. But it seems that Chandrababu has not given the green signal.
There is a faction in the party against Devineni Uma in Mylavaram. A group has decided to cooperate with him if he is given a ticket in the next election. Senior leader Bommasani Subbarao wants to give ticket to him as he is a local. It seems that the sitting MLA Vasantha Krishna Prasad will join the party now that Sade Mia is in the news. Vasantha Krishna Prasad, who had a chance to get a ticket in YCP, resigned. It seems that he will join TDP soon. If that happens Vasantha Krishna Prasad will have to be given a ticket. That is why it is being spread that Devineni Uma must be relocated. But it remains to be seen how Chandrababu will adjust to Uma who is recognized as a reliable leader.
