Gadikota Srikanth Reddy's father Mohan Reddy is a senior leader. He won the 1999 and 2004 elections from Lakkireddypalli constituency. In 2009, Lakkireddypalli disappeared in the re-distribution of constituencies.
Dhanunjay Reddy: YCP will shoot Jagan on another soul mate? Will he be sidelined? Will an IAS officer be fielded in his place? The answer is yes. Senior MLA, legislator from Rayachoti Gadikota Srikanth Reddy is very loyal to Jagan. Classmate too. In 2009, father Rajasekhar Reddy was given the ticket to Srikanth Reddy by that milk. Since then Srikanth Reddy has been winning from Rayachoti constituency for three consecutive times. But this time, it seems that Jagan will field a new candidate for Rayachoti with new calculations.
Gadikota Srikanth Reddy's father Mohan Reddy is a senior leader. He won the 1999 and 2004 elections from Lakkireddypalli constituency. In 2009, Lakkireddypalli disappeared in the re-distribution of constituencies. Rayachoti Constituency emerged. Srikanth Reddy went to America when his father was in politics. Worked in IT for ten years. But he came from America in 2009 due to his interest in politics. With this, Jagan took hold and gave the Rayachoti seat to Srikanth Reddy.
Srikanth Reddy has been following Jagan since the birth of YCP. He won the 2014 elections. He also contested in 2019 and was elected as MLA. Aspired to be a minister. But as part of social mobilization, Srikanth Reddy was sidelined by Jagan. The Chief Whip of the government was matched. There has been a campaign for many days that Srikanth Reddy will also be sidelined in this election. Kapu Ramachandra Reddy, Alla Ramakrishna Reddy and Chennakesava Reddy who are close friends have already been left out. Now there is a strong campaign that Gadikota Srikanth Reddy is in that list.
It seems that Srikanth Reddy will be spared for IAS officer Dhanunjaya Reddy. Currently, Dhanunjaya Reddy is the right hand of CM Jagan. There is criticism that he is running the affairs of the party along with the government. Dhananjaya Reddy is currently the additional secretary of the CMO. His native village is Chennamukka village of Rayachoti mandal. It is reported that Srikanth Reddy is lagging behind in the recent survey. That is why it seems that CM Jagan is looking towards Dhanunjaya Reddy, who is a senior IAS officer and has a lot of relatives in the constituency. YSP sources say that there will be a clarity on the Rayachoti issue in a day or two. We have to see what happens.
