Two YSRCP candidates fight in Balayya’s constitution
The competition has already begun for leadership of the YSRCP in Hindupur assembly constituency, while the next elections are for years away. For the position, two leaders of the YSRCP are vying. They can get the party ticket for the next elections, if they are declared party's incharge for constituency, is what they feel.
Navin Nischal and Mohammad Iqbal are those two leaders. Iqbal contested this time and lost to Balakrishna again, while Navin contested the elections in 2014 and to actor and Chandrababu's brother-in-law Balakrishna. One seat that bucked the pro-YSRCP trend, is that of Hindupur. Even though the party lost most other seats, Balayya Babu managed to win the elections.
But next time, Balayya Babu may not be lucky. Hence, these two YSRCP leaders feel that they can win next time. They can have their say in transfers and postings, if they get the post of party of the party coordinator, is what they feel. YS Jagan has promised Mohammad Iqbal that he would be given an MLC post. By this, Navin Nischal is demanding that he be given the post of party coordinator. For the last nine years, Navin Nischal has been with the YSRCP and has worked hard for the party.
