Its end of Ashok’s era ..?
Nagarjuna appointed VZM parliamentary district president

It appears that the era of senior leader, polite bureau member, former union minister, scion of Vizianagaram Samsthanam P.Ashok Gajapathi Raju is ended up. His name is not appeared in the list announced recently with the names of parliamentary district presidents. Actually Ashok Gajapathi worn first time to Loksabha in 2014 and worked as minister for civil aviation and in the 2019 elections, he was defeated. But he is not given a responcibility to look after the Vizianagaram Loksabha district. He was kept aside and appointed Kimidi Nagarjuna, a young man who is son of Kimidi Mrinalini, former MLA of Cheepurupalli. Nagarjuna is a technocrat studied and worked abroad, came back to Cheepurupalli to assist his mother and even contested in 2019 elections and was defeated by Botcha Satyanarayana. Now he became the president of the VIzianagaram Loksabha district president. It seems that the party high command is preferring younger generation instead of senior leaders like Ashok Gajapathi. On the otherside, even the caste equation also favours Nagarjuna to hold the position by overtaking senior leaders. Actually Vizianagaram Loksabha Constituency has more votes for Kapus. The assembly constituencies like Etcherla, Vizianagaram, Nellimarla, Gajapathinagaram have more Kapu votes and the polarization of these caste votes played key role in the 2019 elections. Bellana Chandrasekhar of YSRCP won against the legendary personality Ashok Gajapathi Raju with the support of Kapu votes only. So it also might be the one reason for appointing Nagarjuna who is also Kapu as the district president here. Any how, the followers of Ashok are disappointed with this appointment and they are assuming that the era of Ashok is going to be concluded.
