Dadi Veerabhadra Rao was once a strong politician from Anakapalli who won four times on TDP ticket over 20 years. He was the opposition leader in AP legislative council from 2007 to 2012. He then sailed with YSRCP.
He failed to create any impact in 2014 elections and in 2019 polls, he supported Gudivada Amarnath of YSRCP with hope that he or his son Ratnakar will get an MLC ticket later. Pawan Kalyan invited him to join Jana Sena, but he refused.
Now he doesn't seem to have a strong cadre anymore and unfortunately, his party YSRCP is also too busy to take care of his interests. He is unable to go to TDP or Jana Sena. This once strong man of North Andhra has now more or less become a loner who is of no big use to any political party.
