JC to contest for LS on TDP ticket

JC to contest for LS on TDP ticket

Former minister JC Diwakar Reddy has decided to contest the ensuing Lok Sabha elections on Telugu Desam Party ticket.

Speaking to media persons on Sunday, Diwakar Reddy said that he might contest from any constituency in Anantapur district while his brother JC Prabhakar Reddy would contest from the Assembly. He said he would join the TDP officially in the next week.

Diwakar Reddy said that he had taken the decision to join the TDP as he felt that only N Chandrababu Naidu was capable of handling the post-bifurcation situation in Andhra Pradesh.

He said that the Congress party was dead in Seemandhra region. He also said that all the Congress leaders in Anantapur district initially tried to join the YSRCP only. However, since the YSRCP did not give them assurances on seats, they are exploring other options now.
