East Godavari slipping out of TDP
One district that is giving sleepless nights to TDP is East Godavari. Once considered as the bastion, when NTR was alive, the district is lost to congress during Naidu regime. With arrival of PRP the chances of getting it back into folds further declined as majority of its voters are Kapus. Such is the pitiable condition of the party in the district it has no suitable faces to contest elections and the district president Jyothula Nehru himself quit to join Chiru.
When asked a local leader about the chances of the TDP he said if it could win three seats it will be surprise.
‘Not only east even in the west also similar fate is waiting for the party if timely remedial measures are not taken’ is common opinion of the party workers in the both districts.
