Kesineni changes equations in united Krishna district

Vijayawada MP Kesineni Srinivas (Nani) had finally quit the TDP and is set to join the YSR Congress. He had already met party president Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy at his Tadepalli camp office, the other day.

Kesineni made some scathing remarks against TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu for betraying him in the party and encouraging his critics. He also blamed Naidu for bringing split in his Kesineni family, by promoting his brother Kesineni Sivanath in the party affairs against him.

As he quit the TDP, there was a big change in the electoral prospects of both the TDP and YSR Congress. While it is a big gain for the YSR Congress, by all means, it was a great loss to the TDP in Krishna district and other parts of the state.

The politically powerful Kamma community is now having second thoughts on its anger against the YSR Congress. The entire community is currently rallying behind the TDP with every Kamma leader investing in the party.

Kesineni is a strong Kamma leader in these parts of the state. He is a known and familiar Kamma leader and is a model for a majority of the people in the community. His walk out of the TDP had made the community leaders think about the YSR Congress and the TDP.

People from the community feel that the TDP had done injustice to Kesineni. By openly denying him ticket in the coming elections, they feel that the TDP had insulted their leader. This feeling is there down the lane in the community.

People from the community in Vijayawada, Nandigama, Jaggaiahpet and Mylavaram Assembly constituencies where their number is remarkable, have the feeling that Kesineni was insulted and shunted out of the party. They have sympathy towards Kesineni now, as he had been working in these constituencies for the past ten years with the Tata Trust.

Kesineni had been providing health and other infrastructural services to the people in the villages of the rural Assembly constituencies under Vijayawada Lok Sabha seat. This gives him an edge against his rivals in the elections. So people from the community in these rural segments are having sympathetic look at Kesineni which is set to have a positive impact towards the TDP.

Kesineni’s entry, thus is set to bring some change among the Kamma community people, towards the YSR Congress and that would certainly give an advantage to the YSR Congress.
