Heavy turbulence is being felt in YSRCP as at least 10 YSRCP MLAs are likely to be targeted by TDP. The targeted MLAs are mainly from Rayalaseema and Northern coastal AP. TDP party sources mentioned in of the Party sources told that TDP has already identified ten of the YSRCP MLAs from whom it might suspect may take five or six of them.
One of the most prominent figures of YSRCP, Bhooma Nagireddy, husband of late Sobha Nagireddy appears to have decided to leave the party along with his daughter, Allagadda MLA Akhila Priya. Mr Nagireddy are likely to join the Telugu Desam. The MLA was closeted with his trusted loyalists in Nandyal on Friday, giving strength to the speculations that he would be parting ways with the YSR CP soon. If Bhooma resignes, it will be a big bow to YSRCP as Bhooma has at least has close relation-ship with 5-6 MLAs .
In the meantime, Naidu wants all the Rayalaseema region MLAs to be available in Vijayawada. When the journalists tried to get some information about this from the YSRCP spokesperson, Ambati Rambabu, he said that the TDP is playing a mind game as it started losing confidence among people. He has shown his confidence that no MLA would leave YSRCP and he also added a question that who will join a sinking ship like TDP.
