Hyderabad: Telugu Desam Party National President and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu seems to going all out to roll out the second phase of Project Akarsha, with the entry Senior Congress leader and former Finance Minister Anam Ramanarayna Reddy from Nellore. The chief minister who had gone on a two-day tour to the rain hit district of Nellore has also embarked on opening up political relief camps for those prominent leader from Congress sulking after that party has been washed out in the last general elections.

Ramanarayana Reddy and Vivekananda Reddy prominently know for Nellore Reddy brothers have earned a name for being dominant on the political arena in the district. And, ahead of a delayed cabinet expansion, the Chief Minister is reportedly mulling to bring back the brains that played a crucial role during the Y S Rajasekhara Reddy’s regime. This he hopes would strengthen the party. Particularly, Nellore is going to play a key role in the coming years, as the government has been planning to roll out many important projects in that district.
Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister P Naryana is a close confident of the Chief Minister from Nellore district. B, when it comes to political battles, Naidu is reportedly of the view, that there need to be seasoned leaders with political acumen who can take on the main opposition the YSRCP party.

At present, the YSRCP has seven assembly seats in its kitty against the ruling party that could win only three assembly seats. So, “It seems that the TDP chief is mulling to bring a change in the political landscape wherever the YSRCP is in a dominant position,” said a senior leader from Nellore. But, the move to invite Ramanarayna Reddy is seen a loss by many prospective senior leaders within the party expecting plum posts like either cabinet ministers, chairman’s of corporations and the like. It is these leaders within the party who had earlier opposed brining in Narayana into cabinet have been once again raising their voices against the entry of Ramanaryana Reddy. However, during a recent interaction with the district party leaders, and key senior party leaders, Naidu has reportedly assured that their interest would be taken care, and entry of the Senior Congress leader would not in any way come in their way.

After Nellore, the TDP is likely to set its eyes on North Coastal Districts of Visakhapatnam, Vizinagaram and Srikakulam to launch its second leg of Project Akarsha, to invite leaders from Congress and YSRCP.
