Vijayawada- Andhra Pradesh gears up for upcoming elections, political dynamics intensify with leaders switching allegiances. In a significant move, key Kapu leader Mudragada Padmanabham announces his return to politics, creating anticipation about his party choice.
Mudragada’s influence among the Kapu community, particularly in Godavari districts, makes his decision crucial for parties seeking their support. Recent weeks saw political overtures from both the ruling YSRCP and the opposition TDP, with reports suggesting YSRCP’s offer of a preferred constituency for Mudragada’s contest.
However, recent developments indicate a shift, as Jana Sena leaders, including Bolishetti Srinivas, Tataji, and Kapu JAC leaders, engage in discussions with Mudragada. While termed a casual meeting, speculations arise about a potential meeting between Mudragada and Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan in the coming days.
In a media interaction, Mudragada’s son, Giribabu, hints at possibilities of the father-son duo aligning with either the TDP or Jana Sena, ruling out interest in joining the YSRCP. The final decision holds significance, influencing the sway of Kapu votes in the State.
As political maneuvers unfold, parties await Mudragada’s choice, recognizing the impact it could have on electoral outcomes.
