Vangaveeti family was associated with Congress due to personal rivalry with Devineni family while the latter had joined the TDP. YSRCP leader Vangaveeti Radha had faced defeat from the Vijayawada Central in the previous elections. Recently, former Congress MLA Malladi Vishnu had joined the YSRCP and the high command had promised to give the Central ticket to him. Vangaveeti Radha was not happy for promising the ticket to Malladi Vishnu.
The TDP is said to have offered him Vijayawada Central seat to contest as MLA and TDP’s Bonda Uma is offered with Machilipatnam MP seat and Cabinet berth by making Bonda MLC, if doesn’t want to contest as MP.
Vijayawada Central MLA Bonda said it is party high command which will look after it if Vangaveeti Radha joins TDP. Bonda said in all the 3 constituencies of Vijayawada, sitting MLAs are there and added that all these have high chances to continue further in the upcoming General Election 2019. He has expressed confidence that in 2019 General Election, TDP will get over 150 Assembly seats and added that Telugu Desam Party Chief Chandrababu Naidu will again become the CM of the state Andhra Pradesh.
Meanwhile, if Vangaveeti Radha joins TDP it will be a shocker to actor turned politician Pawan Kalyan. Many from Kapu community expected Vangaveeti Radha to join Jana Sena.
