Nara Lokesh’s Yuva Galam Padayatra is going on in Chittoor district. Lokesh has been announcing candidates wherever possible. Lokesh already announced five candidates in his Padayatra.
Blue media is giving its own twists to this. They say Lokesh is finalizing candidates in a hurry without giving time for Chandrababu to work on the right candidates. They even say Lokesh is picking weak candidates and the cadre is angry about it.
Candidates being strong or weak is another subject but then, it is silly the media thinks Lokesh announces candidates without consulting Chandrababu Naidu.
Lokesh and Chandrababu Naidu along with the party bigheads and consultants brainstormed about the candidates. Only the finalized candidates are being announced right now. The candidate is Tirupati is not finalized yet and so, there is no announcement by Lokesh.
Chandrababu himself announced twelve candidates so far in his district tours. He already confirmed tickets to the nineteen sitting MLAs taking the total to thirty-six along with the five announced by Lokesh.
