AP CM and TDP National President N Chandrababu Naidu gave green signal for sitting MP Galla Jayadev to contest from Guntur MP seat for the second consecutive time. Educated in America and coming from an industrialists’ family, Jayadev has also got the backing of his brother-in-law and film hero Mahesh Babu. His services in criticising the Modi government in the Parliament are recognized by Chandrababu. In the past two days, review meetings were held on segments in Guntur district at the CM camp office at Undavalli. Naidu cleared the name of Jayadev and also those of Dhulipalla Narendra Kumar for Ponnur and Alapati Raja for Tenali assembly segments. Naidu recalled the effective fight given by Jayadev on behalf of the AP state over special status and projects in the Parliament.
The TDP leaders are in an upbeat mood as Naidu has cleared the names for the most important segments of Tenali and Ponnur. Both these segments are known as strongholds of TDP. Interestingly, this time Alapati Raja will face tough fight from YCP candidate and former assembly speaker Nadendla Manohar.
In Ponnur, Dhulipalla Narendras is going to test his luck in getting a double hat trick there in the coming election.
