YSR Congress has been winning the local elections in Chandrababu Naidu’s Kuppam constituency with its muscle. There has been propaganda that Naidu is facing severe anti-incumbency in the constituency and will definitely lose in the coming elections.
But then, Naidu has answered it in style. The TDP Supremo is in the Kuppam tour starting today and there has been a stunning reception from the cadre and the people. Meanwhile, the TDP cadre and YSR Congress cadre were involved in an altercation after the latter have torn TDP flexes.
“YSR Congress has no cadre in Kuppam. Most of these people were brought from other constituencies to create unrest. Police have been arresting TDP leaders and cadre in the name of law and order issues. In the name of rain, power is also being disconnected in some areas,” local TDP leaders allege.
Chandrababu will stay put in the constituency tomorrow as well. Chandrababu Naidu has been winning from the constituency for the last seven terms. Even before Chandrababu Naidu, TDP has won for two more terms ever since 1983 (TDP’s inception).
