Following the ouster of Rajampet MLA Meda Mallikarjuna Reddy, the Telugu Desam Party is weighing other opportunities. Meda had differences within with party workers and this forced the party High Command to suspend him. Also, he was the only one from the TDP who had gained a seat in Kadapa district, which is supposed to be a YSRCP stronghold, in the 2014 assembly elections.
At a time when Meda is in talks with the YSRCP and has almost chosen to join the party, the yellow party is in discussions with Red Bus co-founder Charan Padmaraju for the Rajampet seat.
Presumably, Charan has met TDP MP C.M. Ramesh and spoke with him about his concern in the Rajampet seat. Following the talks with Ramesh, Charan is said to meet TDP Chief N. Chandrababu Naidu along with Ramesh to show his interest on the seat. The Telugu Desam Party is yet to conclude the party Rajampet in-charge.
According to references, Charan will meet Chandrababu tomorrow. And, following the meeting with the CM, the decision for Rajampet in-charge will be made in his attendance, say TDP sources.
