Mangalagiri is emerging as a crucial battleground in the upcoming 2024 elections in Andhra Pradesh, primarily due to the consecutive candidacy of Lokesh, which has drawn significant attention. The focus on Mangalagiri constituency has intensified as the YSRCP is determined to defeat Lokesh for the second time in the same constituency.
The sitting MLA, Alla Ramakrishna Reddy, previously left the YSRCP due to internal party differences, leading the party to search for a suitable candidate to counter Lokesh. Ganji Chiranjeevi, a member of the BC community and formerly associated with the TDP, was appointed interim in-charge by the YSRCP.
However, the YSRCP is facing challenges and uncertainty in Mangalagiri constituency regarding the selection of the right candidate to field against Lokesh. Local YSRCP leaders in Mangalagiri are eager to contest against Lokesh, creating a dilemma for the party leadership.
Rumors suggest that the YSRCP leadership might remove Chiranjeevi as the interim in-charge, further adding to the confusion and uncertainty among the cadre in Mangalagiri constituency. Despite internal disputes and disagreements, the announcement of a new in-charge for Mangalagiri is anticipated in the coming days.
