Chandrababu's Bye Bye To Kuppam?

 - Sakshi Post

Chittoor: Fearing defeat at the hands of YSRCP in the upcoming Assembly elections, the TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu seems to be finding an excuse to escape Kuppam constituency. Kuppam assembly seat has been the TDP bastion but the constituency did not witness any major development during Naidu’s decades rule. 

Naidu ‘s wife Nara Bhuvaneswari toured Kuppam assembly constituency to open Anna Canteen in Gudpalle mandal on Tuesday. Speaking on the occasion, she made an interesting comment. Bhuvaneswari said Naidu has been contesting from Kuppam assembly seat for over three decades, so she’s thinking of replacing him in the upcoming elections as he needs some rest.

Bhuvaneswari’s comment on the Kuppam assembly seat assumes significance as Naidu has been thinking of changing his native constituency for a long time. In this context, Bhuvaneswari’s statement ahead of Assembly elections indicates that Naidu might want to take a break from active politics. During his prison time, Naidu submitted documents to the court stating that he’s some medical conditions and needs immediate medical attention. While being in hail, he tried to encourage his son Nara Lokesh to take the leadership role of the party but he could not run the property and therefore, Naidu had to take the charge soon after his release on bail on health grounds. 

"I want to give him rest and contest (from Kuppam)," Nara Bhuvaneswari

Is this why Naidu wants an exit from Kuppam?

  • In Kuppam assembly constituency, YSRCP won all the four ZPTC seats 
  • YSRCP dominates the Kuppam civic body
  • In Kuppam panchayat elections, out of 28 seats, YSRCP secured victory in 25 seats
  • Kuppam became a municipality only after CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy came into power in 2019 
  • Approving the long pending demand, CM Jagan converted Kuppam into a revenue division 
  • Electoral body removed 30,000 bogus votes in Kuppam following a complaint from YSRCP and this has dealt a huge blow to TDP

According to Bharat, YSRCP incharge of Kuppam, the ruling party has won all the recent local body  elections. Latest poll surveys predict a return of YSRCP to power in the state and therefore Naidu is finding an excuse to escape from his native constituency.
