After Amanchi Krishna Mohan, now Avanti Srinivas aka Srinivasa Rao Anakapalli TDP MP made up his mind to quit TDP. According to the sources from the close associates of Avanti Srinivas, the YSRCP senior leaders already discussed for the arrival of Avanti into the Party.
In 2009 Avanti Srinivas contested from Bheemli on PRP ticket and after the dissolution of PRP into congress, Avanti continued as MLA. Later, in 2014 elections Avanti contested as TDP candidate from Anakapalli Lok Sabha segment and won the election.
However, for the past one year, Avanti is not happy with party developments as TDP denied Bheemli assembly ticket to him and represented Ganta Srinivasa Rao from that constituency. TDP offered Vishakhapatnam North assembly ticket and he is not interested to take that.
So, Avanti has reportedly preferred joining YSRCP to contest in the assembly polls. Meanwhile, Senior TDP leaders are trying to stop Avanti Srinivas. But Avanti close associates reports say that he strongly decided to join in YSRCP as Avanti got hurt with the developments.
