Election Commission has published the list for MLC elections in Telugu states on Monday. But there is still some scepticism in TDP circles about the list of candidates to be designated seats. Both TDP and YSRCP can win five MLCs on their own as per their strength in Assembly. It seems like Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu is sure of getting another chance.
As per the party sources, TDP is going to choose MLC seat to the leaders who are not going to contest in Assembly elections. P.Narayana, Minister for Municipal Administration is going to leave as MLC and is planning to contest in the upcoming Assembly polls. And the other two MLCs- Samanthakamani and Aadi Reddy Apparao may not be given a chance this time.
Former president of AP NGO Society Ashok Babu is also involved in the MLC race. It is understood that there are possibilities of Vangaveeti Radha to get MLC, given he joins TDP. If the information for filling MLCs under Governor’s quota comes out, Minister Asinarayana Reddy’s son Subbarami Reddy may get a chance instead of Rama Subba Reddy who was selected under the same portion and Nellore Mayor Aziz may get the chance in place of Minister Somireddy Chandramohan Reddy who is also in the group for MLC.
