Sitting MP Murali Mohan’s daughter-in-law Maganti Roopa will contest from Rajahmundry MP seat. Her name is finalised after Murali Mohan has expressed his unwillingness to continue in electoral politics any more. TDP boss Chandrababu Naidu has okayed Roopa’s candidature after holding discussions with Murali Mohan and different leaders from Rajahmundry Lok Sabha constituency.
Chandrababu has also finalised former Union Minister Panabaka Lakshmi’s candidature from Tirupati Lok Sabha constituency. She will join the TDP along with her husband Panabaka Krishnaiah soon. Her name was first considered for Bapatla segment but it was changed later.
Panabaka Krishnaiah has met with Chandrababu Naidu at Undavalli camp office and asked for Sullurupeta assembly ticket for him as well. Sullurupeta falls in Tirupati Lok Sabha constituency. Hailing from Gudur assembly limits, the Panabaka family have got good contacts with local leaders in Sarvepalli, Gudur, Sullurupeta and Venkatagiri segments which fall in Tirupati parliamentary seat.
