Peddireddy Ramachandra Reddy was a contemporary of Chandrababu Naidu. They studied in same college. Chandrababu went on to become the longest served Chief Minister in Telugu history and Peddireddy could not go beyond being a Minister.
So, Peddireddy is always jealous of Chandrababu, people of Chittoor district says. Peddireddy has put in all efforts to destroy TDP in the district after 2019.
He even vowed to defeat Chandrababu in Kuppam and showed good results for the party in local elections.
Peddireddy was made the incharge for MLC Elections in Rayalaseema.
In Teachers seats, YSR Congress candidates managed to crawl to the victory line with bare minimum majorities. TDP not contesting these seats helped the Ruling Party.
In Graduates seats, TDP won both East Rayalaseema and West Rayalaseema seats and that too comfortably.
YSR Congress planned everything well from voters registration to electioneering with the help of Volunteers. Massive irregularities took place before and on the polling day. We have watched it live on TV channels too.
Even then, the Ruling Party could not escape defeat. Peddireddy who made tall claims of defeating Chandrababu Naidu in Kuppam could not ensure party‘s victory in seats having his own district or CM Jagan‘s own district.
