Former trade union minister and president of the Srikakulam district of the YSR congressional party, Killi Kruparani, said Monday that the YSRCP would have a landslide victory in the ZPTC and MPTC elections even if the TDP were in action as people of all sections trust in Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan would have Reddy.
She campaigned for the party candidates in Tekkali, Nandigama and other mandals.
Speaking to the media, she said that former Prime Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu’s decision to boycott elections was a political mistake and neither party would take such a step.
“Mr. Chandrababu couldn’t digest the unprecedented defeat in the local elections. The TDP couldn’t win a respectable number of posts, let alone chairman and mayor’s posts. Fearing further deterioration in the vote bank in rural areas, he boycotted the elections for silly reasons.” The people of the state will forget about the TDP even before the general election in 2024, ”said Dr Kruparani.
“Many TDP leaders rejected the boycott decision as it would ruin their political career in the respective constituencies. Staying out of the political battlefield is not a good decision for either party, ”she added.
