The TDP candidate won an unexpected victory in the MLC elections held under MLA Kota in March last year. Elections were held for all the six seats.. TDP has fielded a candidate for the last seat.
TDP: Telugu Desam Party continues to be represented in the Rajya Sabha after its formation. Even though the party has faced setbacks, TDP members have continued to be in the Rajya Sabha. At present TDP has only one Rajya Sabha member. He is Kanakamedala Rabindra. He will retire next month. As a result TDP has no representation in Rajya Sabha. Currently, three Rajya Sabha seats are vacant from AP. EC has issued a notification for the elections. Voting will be held at the end of this month. But will the Telugu Desam Party contest? Or? That should be known.
The TDP candidate won an unexpected victory in the MLC elections held under MLA Kota in March last year. Elections were held for all the six seats.. TDP has fielded a candidate for the last seat. Four TDP MLAs have already defected to YCP. But exceptionally four YCP MLAs voted for TDP candidate. Panchumurthy Anuradha won as MLC. Exactly such a result is expected to be repeated in the Rajya Sabha elections. That is why Chandrababu is trying to announce TDP candidate. But it turns out that it is not an easy task. On the one hand, the general and assembly elections are approaching. Around 45 votes are required to secure a Rajya Sabha seat. At present the strength of TDP is 18 MLAs. 27 more people should be attracted in this calculation. Does it work? The question arises.
The party will surely issue a whip in the Rajya Sabha elections. You have to show your vote to the party agent. How many people come forward in this calculation? YCP is shifting candidates across the state. MLAs are angry with Jagan for changing the sittings. But do they disagree politically? Or? That should be known. Convincing MLAs during seat adjustments and election strategies is a difficult task. An annoying affair to say the least. Also, there is nothing that comes with Rajya Sabha post. Comments are being heard that it is nothing but a waste of time at the crucial time of elections. That is why Chandrababu is reported to have backed down. It seems that Chandrababu thinks that there will be trouble due to the difference in numbers. But it is being reported that Lokesh is persistent in this matter. And let's see how Chandrababu will move forward
