The YSR Congress Party is not contesting the ensuing GHMC polls. This twist by YSR CP raised eyebrows of many as to as to why YS Jagan Mohan Reddy decided not to contest the GHMC polls in Hyderabad where a large number of Seemandhra voters reside.
The TDP and BJP parties are criticizing the YSRCP saying that it has stayed away from fielding its candidates to extend indirect support to the TRS.
But YSRCP MP and and Party’s Telangana chief Ponguleti Srinivas Reddy said lack of funds is the main reason to pull out of GHMC Polls. He said that party would strengthen its base in Telangana first before going to any elections in future.
He alleged that the ruling TRS, Telugu Desam and BJP combine and Congress, which are in power here and in other states, have taken the the polls as prestigious and ready to spend huge money to win the polls.
Still, the statement of pulling out of GHMC Polls because of lack of funds doesn’t sound promising!!
