The ruling YCP is actively considering going for by-election in Gannavaram assembly segment. It is almost decided to make Vallabhaneni Vamsi resign from MLA post and recontest on the YCP ticket. The party is offering the MLC post to existing YCP Gannavaram incharge Yarlagadda Ranga Rao.
Political circles say that YCP Krishna district key leader Dutta Ramachandra Rao has held special discussion with Vamsi in this regard. Rao is also a member of the YCP State level political committee. CM Jaganmohan Reddy has already instructed Ramachandra Rao to take necessary steps for future plans on Gannavaram.
The YCP is trying to use the previous KCR strategy to use by-elections as a means to showcase its strength. Moreover, the YCP wants to put TDP in a tight spot because the Opposition party challenged Vamsi to resign from MLA post. Vamsi is discussing the issue with his followers. He is soon expected to announce his resignation and challenge the TDP for a big fight.
