In a dramatic turn, incumbent TDP has lost Nagiri Municipal chairman post to opposition YSR Congress party. YSR Congress MLA from Nagiri constituency Roja Selvamani has reportedly influenced TDP counselor Hari Haran ahead of Municipal Chairman elections besides three other independents making easy for YSRCP to bag the post. Despite having won 13 wards, TDP failed to bag the chairman seat.
Buzz is that Roja has chalked out a strategy, well-conceived game plan and implemented it successfully. With this TDP has lost municipal chairman post in Chandra Babu’s own district Chittoor. This is seen as a minor set back to TDP. Naturally this drew flak from TDP party workers and leaders and they alleged that YSRCP played “cheating” game. This led to eruption of slender violence.
“Despite people voted for TDP party, counselor shifting his loyalty to YSRCP is not acceptable and not fair. It’s nothing but burial of democracy, “commented a TDP senior leader from Chittoor. Roja must have scored a temporary victory, but this will send wrong signals to common man.
