Four MLAs who won on TDP tickets and one MLA from Janasena have ditched their parties and supported YSR Congress after 2019.
To prevent By-elections, they did not join the party officially and are continuing as Unofficial MLAs of YSR Congress. There are problems in these constituencies due to friction between these MLAs and existing leaders of the YSR Congress.
With elections fast approaching, Jagan is confirming tickets to these turncoats ignoring the loyalists. Regional Coordinators are confirming tickets for Plenaries.
Kodali Nani announced a ticket for Vallabhaneni Vamsi irking Dutta Ramachandra Rao and Yarlagadda Venkat Rao.
East Godavari incharge Sateesh confirmed Razole ticket to Rapaka Varaprasad. Bonthu Rajeswar Rao who is YCP incharge immediately resigned after the announcement.
Malla Vijay Prasad who is Vishakapatnam West incharge until yesterday was set aside and Adari Anand, the Anakapalle TDP MP candidate was made the incharge.
Old leaders of YSR Congress who stayed with the party in thick and thin are sulking with this attitude of the party high command.
