Will the Telugu Desam Party contest the Rajya Sabha elections? Or? What is the strategy of that party? It is not known. Currently, Chandrababu is busy with alliances.
Rajya Sabha Elections: Telugu Desam Party has a special position in national politics. The party has seen many victories in four decades. Stumbled. But the presence was evident. But now the existence of the same party is going to be questioned. There will be no minimum representation in the Rajya Sabha. Kanakamedala Ravindra is currently a TDP member of the Rajya Sabha. His tenure will end on April 2. Out of the three Rajya Sabha seats being held in AP, there is one seat that he is vacating. YCP is aggressive in Rajya Sabha elections. Candidates for those three positions have been announced. But the Telugu Desam Party has not announced its candidate yet.
Will the original Telugu Desam Party contest the Rajya Sabha elections? Or? What is the strategy of that party? It is not known. Currently, Chandrababu is busy with alliances. Focused on seat adjustment. Key discussions are underway. It is precisely at such a moment that the Rajya Sabha elections are coming and no decision can be taken. At present Telugu Desam Party has the strength of 18 MLAs. The strength of 44 MLAs is required to get Rajya Sabha post. In this calculation, 26 more MLAs are required. Chandrababu felt that the sitting MLAs will come to TDP as there is a large-scale change of candidates in YCP. But MLAs are not coming as expected. On the other hand, Chandrababu feels that people will get a wrong impression. They came to the decision that assembly elections are more important than Rajya Sabha elections. Analysts are of the opinion that this is why they have decided to stay away from the Rajya Sabha elections.
However, TDP has made a special strategy since many days before the Rajya Sabha elections. Along with Varla Ramaiah, Koneru Satish's name was heard. In March last year, TDP won the MLC election under MLA Kota. Even now, Rajya Sabha elections are expected to move in the same way. But the TDP is far from the numerical strength required for the Rajya Sabha elections. To get the support of 44 MLAs, many efforts have to be made. Chandrababu is afraid that if he lures the MLAs of other parties to his side in the run-up to the elections, wrong signals will be sent to the people. But the TDP leaders boasted that they will secure a seat in the Rajya Sabha elections. Now YCP is getting criticism from social media as it is not able to announce the candidate. The ranks of the YCP are complaining that this is your pride and glory. It is noteworthy that the Telugu Desam Party, which has a history of four decades, is preparing to be without Rajya Sabha representation for the first time.
