Vallabhaneni Vamsi, who won on a TDP ticket later moved to YSRCP and has been a Jagan loyalist who has been giving nightmares to TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu and his son Lokesh. Jagan Mohan Reddy has already confirmed the same ticket to Vamsi for the next elections.
However, challenges are mounting him for other camps in YSRCP. Leaders like Yarlagadda Venkata Rao and Dutta Ramchandra Rao had fought with each other earlier to get the B-form and then to win, but with Vamsi being given the berth, they are now presenting a united front.
In this regard, they are planning to not go to TDP since Gadde Rammohan Rao is expected to contest from here and hence, they are keen to contest as independents since they view Vamsi as their bete noire. They are reportedly contacting TDP for some financial support to pose a strong challenge to Vamsi in the next assembly elections.
