Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu's son Nara Lokesh may face a tough electoral debut as the Telugu Desam Party has never won from this weavers-dominated constituency in Guntur district since 1985 and rival YSR Congress Party is leaving no stone unturned.
With an electorate of 2,68,429 lakh, Mangalagiri has predominantly backward communities’ population, especially weaver’s community (Padmashali) and Muslims. It is learned that Both Lokesh (Kamma) and YSRCP candidate (Reddy) have upper caste identity.
But there were three things will play in favor of TDP in that constituency. One is welfare schemes, second is infrastructure development like drainage, roads and urban housing and the third one is 3 lakh jobs generated in private sector. Apart from those, it will be very tough for Nara Lokesh in his electoral debut.
Will Nara Lokesh make this time for Telugu Desam Party? Let’s wait and see.
