TDP loses its senior leader in Vizag
The TDP which had tasted humiliating defeat in the 2019 elections and facing leadership crisis had lost a senior leader on Wednesday. A farmer MLA and the party Vizag urban unit president, Rehaman, had quit the party in support of Jaganmohan Reddy government’s move to make Visakhapatnam the executive capital of the State.
There are several senior leaders of the TDP who are waiting at the exit door of the TDP following Jaganmohan Reddy government’s announcement on capital issue. A meeting of the TDP leaders was held two days ago in Visakhapatnam where several Uttarandhra region were present and welcomed the government’s decision on making Visakhapatnam as executive capital.
Jaganmohan Reddy is scheduled visit Visakhapatnam on December 28, a day after the AP Cabinet’s crucial meeting at Velagapudi. The cabinet meeting is crucial because it is scheduled to discuss the recommendations of the G N Rao committee on capital decentralisation. A decision is likely to be taken at this cabinet meeting and Jaganmohan Reddy would be visiting the port city with a good news to the people of Uttarandhra.
What is important in politics now is the possibility of several Uttarandhra MLAs and leaders of the TDP are getting ready to quit the party and welcome the chief minister to Visakhapatnam on the day. It is to be seen how many of the TDP leaders would welcome the chief minister on his visit.
