After giving a rude shock to Vangaveeti Radha, YS Jagan is all set for another blow to Guntur district YCP leaders. Ummareddy Venkateswarlu’s son-in-law Kilari Rosaiah has been directed to contest for Guntur Parliament constituency instead of the existing Krishna Devarayulu who had been projected as the MP candidate from Guntur for over four-and-half years. Jagan directed Krishna Devarayulu to contest from Narasaraopet Parliament constituency. This is said to be irking Vignan Rathaiah who is afraid that his son may not withstand if he moves to Narasaraopet Parliament seat.
Since Ummareddy is from Kapu community, Jagan reportedly voted for Ummareddy’s son-in-law Rosaiah to field against Galla Jayadev, brother-in-law of Mahesh Babu. Guntur Parliament constituency said to have more Kapu votes. Even in 2014, YCP had fielded leader from Kapu community Vallabhaneni Balashowry. Balashowry, however, lost to TDP’s Galla Jayadev by over 55,000 votes.
Of late, speculations are rife that Kapu community is moving away from YCP owing to Jagan’s comments on Kapu Reservation, personal attack on Pawan Kalyan and denying Vijayawada Central Assembly ticket to Vangaveeti Radha. Amidst this background, Jagan seems to have decided to field Kilari Rosaiah from Guntur Parliament seat. This sudden change is said to be getting a lot of flak from the local party leaders.
