Since 2009, the TDP has not suffered defeat in the Gannavaram constituency and Vamsi is optimistic of retaining the MLA seat. After YSRCP MLA Dutta Ramachandra Rao refused to contest, YSRCP Gannavaram in-charge Yarlagadda Venkata Rao to contested this time in assembly polls.
Recently, Yarlagadda has filed a police complaint against TDP's Vallabhaneni Vamsi. The YSRCP leader alleged that Vamsi is threatening him and his family and requested the police to take appropriate action against the TDP leader.
YSRCP leader also claimed that Vamsi came to his residence and as a proof of it, he handed over the CCTV footage to Vijayawada Police Commissioner Dwaraka Tirumala Rao. Then, TDP leader Vamsi had to react on this and he took to his Facebook page to reply to Yarlagadda's allegations. Vamsi assured that the Yarlagadda need not be fearful at the end of the video clipping.
Meanwhile, the path to Vallabhaneni victory appears to be tough this time. His tenure has been mired by various allegations.
