Manda Krishna, who fought for SC categorization in Andhra Pradesh, extended his support to janasena MLA candidate Ravela Kishore Babu. Manda Krishna lambasted Chandra Babu for applying lose-lose strategy on Ravela Kishore Babu.
It is known news that, in 2014 elections Ravela Kishore Babu contested from TDP and became minister in Chandrababu Naidu cabinet. But later he was removed from the ministry. Also TDP cadres insulted Kishore Babu. So he resigned to his MLA post and joined janasena party. Now , from the same prathipadu constituency , he is contesting again on janasena ticket. Chandrababu Naidu is fielding Dokka Manikya Varaprasad from this constituency. YSR CP is fielding Sucharitha again.
Manda Krishna responded on the politics of his constituency and told that he will be supporting Ravela Kishore Babu. He added that, Kishore Babu belongs to Madiga community, Ysrcp candidate sucharitha belongs to Mala community and in 2014, irrespective of parties, all madiga voters voted for Kishore Babu while all Mala voted for Sucharitha. Still kishor Babu won the election only with 7000 votes. Now in 2019, Chandrababu intentionally fielding manikya varaprasad who is also from Madiga community here so that the votes of this community will be split between TDP and Janasena and Kishore Babu will lose. Manda Krishna allegated that chandrababu is ready to have YSR CP candidate win from here but not Ravela Kishore Babu as Kishore Babu will question Chandrababu Naidu in assembly, if he wins.
We will have to wait and see whether Manda Krishna support will help Ravela Kishore Babu.
