Both YSRCP chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu are likely to adopt different approaches to choosing candidates for the 2024 assembly elections. While Jagan is all set to continue to promote the seniors in the party, the TDP is planning to bring in a young brigade to the fore and relegate senior TDP leaders to the background.
Sources say this is because the reins of power in the TDP are going to pass into the hands of Nara Lokesh. Hence, Chandrababu wants to create a team of young leaders around Lokesh. He feels that Lokesh will have it easy managing a young team as compared to seniors, who may not pay any heed to him. YS Jagan does not have this problem and hence, will persist with the seniors.
For instance, Polamreddy Dinesh Reddy, who is son of senior TDP leader Polamreddy Srinivasula Reddy, has been made incharge of the TDP in Kovoor of Nellore. In North Andhra’s Narsipatnam, Chintakayala Ayyanna Patrudu’s son Vijay is being promoted. Ditto with sons of senior leaders Jyothula Nehru, KS Jawahar and Adireddy Appa Rao.
On the other hand, Jagan has already told the sons and close relatives of senior leaders that they may have to wait for some more time. The seniors would be renominated as they would find it easier to win from their chosen constituencies. It remains to be seen whose strategy actually gets so succeed and whose fails.
