TDP aspirants' list swells in Guntur district

By Our Staff Reporter

GUNTUR, JAN. 16. Several aspirants are throwing their hat into the ring for securing the ticket of the Telugu Desam Party from various constituencies in the district.

Speculation is rife that the party is likely to change its candidates in at least 10 out of 19 Assembly constituencies. Sources say the party supremo, N. Chandrababu Naidu, is getting secret surveys conducted across the State. Survey results in the district have reportedly indicated that the going for the party in seven constituencies is tough. The reason cited is anti-incumbency factor. Interestingly, the seven constituencies were represented by ruling party MLAs in the dissolved House. There is no competition for the candidatures of S.M. Ziauddin (Guntur-I), Makineni Pedarathaiah (Prathipadu), Prathipati Pulla Rao (Chilakaluripet), Kodela Sivaprasada Rao (Narasaraopet), Dhullipalla Narendra Kumar (Ponnur), Mummaneni Venkata Subbaiah (Repalle) and Alapati Rajendra Prasad (Vemur).

The list of aspirants seems to be growing by the day. The constituency-wise list of contenders, excluding the MLAs in the dissolved House, is: Guntur-II - Kolli Sharada (VGTMUDA chairperson), B. Seshasai Babu, Challa Venkata Krishna Reddy (former MLA), Kilari Rosaiah (son-in-law of Ummareddy Venkateswarlu); Sathenapalli - Kovelamudi Ravindra (Nani) and P. Subba Rao; Pedakurapadu - Sunita Reddy (daughter of former Congress MLA, G. Ramaswamy Reddy), Nutalapati Hanumaiah, Kilari Rajan Babu (Sangam Dairy chairman); Gurazala - Yarapathineni Srinivasa Rao (former MLA) and Srirama Murthy; Macherla - Kota Saidaiah (former MP from Narasaraopet), N. Sivarama Prasad (former MLA), Joolakanti Brahma Reddy or his wife (sitting legislator's son or daughter-in-law); Vinukonda - Nannapaneni Raja Kumari (Telugu Mahila State president) and Leelavathi (wife of industrialist, G.V.S.S. Anjaneyulu).

Bapatla - Ummareddy Venkata Ramana (son of Tenali MP), P. Muralikrishnam Raju (MD of a private Telugu TV channel) and Jitta Pramila Rani (Municipal Chairperson of Bapatla); Kuchinapudi - son and daughter of former MLA, E. Sitaravamma; Tenali - Raavi Ravindranath Chowdary (former MLA) and Yadla Gangadhara Rao (Municipal Chairman); Duggirala - Pathuri Nagabhushanam (Zilla Parishad chairman) and K. Koteswara Rao; Mangalagiri - M. Rajendra (son of former Minister, the late M.S.S. Koteswara Rao) and P. Anuradha (Mayor of Vijayawada Municipal Corporation).

The recent press conference by Revathi, wife of the Revenue Secretary of the State Government, D.C. Rosaiah, that she was in the race for TDP ticket from Tadikonda became a cause of concern for the Minister for Social Welfare, J.R. Pushparaj. The Minister represented this constituency in the dissolved House. He was elected from Tadikonda in 1983, 1985 and 1999. He lost to T. Venkaiah of the Congress in 1989 and the seat was given in poll adjustments to the Communist Party of India in the 1994 election.

Mrs. Revathi claimed at the press conference that she would contest the elections with the support of the Minister. Mr. Pushparaj had to get a meeting of the coordination committee of his constituency convened and a resolution adopted urging the party's State leadership to give the party ticket to him.
