Will Renuka Chowdary contest from Gudivada?


These days in Andhra Pradesh, Congress former MP from Khammam in Telangana, Renuka Chowdary, is very much in the news. She had recently participated in the Amaravati farmers’ padayatra on the first day on September 12.

During her brief walk along with the farmers, Renuka Chowdary blamed chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy. She had accused Jagan Mohan Reddy of being anti-Kamma and targeting Kamma people in the state.

She spoke so much about the caste and threw a challenge that she would contest from Gudivada Assembly constituency in Krishna district in the next elections. She criticised the Kamma MLAs, Kodali Nani of Gudivada and Vallabhaneni Vamsi of Gannavaram, both from the Krishna district, for being with Jagan Mohan Reddy.

She gave interviews to some local news channels and website channels where she said she would defeat Kodali Nani at Gudivada Assembly constituency in the next elections. But the big question now doing rounds is which party would give her the chance to contest!

Renuka Chowdary started her political career with the TDP. Later, she shifted her loyalties to the Congress due to differences with Chandrababu Naidu. Will she now join hands with Chandrababu Naidu and contest on TDP ticket at Gudivada is the big question.

Quite interestingly, Chandrababu Naidu is also looking for strong candidates for Gudivada and Gannavaram Assembly constituencies. If Renuka Chowdary comes to AP and offers to contest from Gudivada, Chandrababu Naidu would require one more candidate for Gannavaram constituency.

It is to be seen who would fill these two vacancies and whether Renuka Chowdary would stay by her word and contest from Gudivada!

Tough time for Kodali Nani – TDP picks up in Gudivada

YCP sitting MLA Kodali Nani is facing the most difficult election in Gudivada assembly segment this time. All eyes are on the campaign trends in this segment now in Krishna district. The TDP cadres have taken it as a prestigious issue to defeat Nani with a special focus. They have recovered fully in the past five years with second rung leadership well in place. Moreover, Devineni Avinash’s candidature has come as a unifying factor for the TDP local leaders.

Why is the TDP so serious about Nani in the entire district? He has been very aggressive in criticising and embarrassing CM Chandrababu Naidu from the beginning. Following ego clashes only, Nani has left the TDP and migrated with almost all of the TDP cadre in the segment to the YCP.

Jaganmohan Reddy has also given considerable support to Nani in the party’s district affairs. He is known for his excellent election management and organisational abilities. But analysts say the TDP local leaders picked up tremendously and strengthened the party in the past five years. It is going to be an uphill task for Nani. Devineni Avinash is expected to make it a very close fight.

Change of plan – TDP targets YCP MLA Kodali Nani


AP CM Chandrababu Naidu has taken special interest in the Gudivada assembly segment in Krishna district. This segment lies in the heart of delta area but the YCP has taken stronger roots here because of producer turned politician MLA Kodali Nani. It was also very painful for the TDP leaders to tackle Nani who is known as a strong critic of CM. The TDP is changing its plan in 2019 election to make sure that Kodali Nani is defeated this time.

Party insiders say Chandrababu is not interested to field Raavi Venkateswara Rao again from Gudivada. The CM is actively considering the candidature of TDP Youth Wing President Devineni Avinash. There is a considerable following for the Devineni group in the entire segment. Raavi group is also expected to adjust with the change of plan. When the issue has figured in a review meeting, Avinash has also indicated his readiness to contest from Gudivada.

The TDP local leaders are hoping the ongoing changes may increase the winning chances of their party. It has become a matter of prestige for the entire TDP district unit to defeat Kodali Nani in Gudivada this time.
