For even bigwigs, facing repeated elections with own money is a litmus test and the same seems to be the case with BJP candidate in Medak by elections, Jagga Reddy. Sources say that he is facing slight crunch when it comes to pumping funds for the elections. And in order to make sure that TRS loses or at least its victory margin comes down, TDP has also taken it as a prestige issue here.
There are reports that TDP is shelling couple of crores to this man who was a loyalist of former CM Kiran Kumar Reddy. He was also a minister until eight months back. Now he is the face of TDP-BJP high decibel campaign in Medak. Any reduced margin for TRS is acceptable but a crushing defeat of others by TRS is only expected to cement TRS as an unrivalled party for next couple of years.
Given the fact that this happens to be the constituency given away by CM KCR, the TRS has got a strong wind of support. But if by any chance Jagga Reddy-TDP combo gets a surprise win or a competitive margin then it will surely raise doubts over the strength of TRS.
