Telugu Desam Party young gun Nara Lokesh faced a big defeat from Mangalagiri constituency in the recent election. Coming up against sitting MLA Alla Ramakrishna Reddy proved to be too big of a challenge for him.
Well, Lokesh had already confirmed that he will be contesting from Mangalagiri constituency in the next election as well.
Now, Chandrababu has reportedly asked Lokesh to concentrate on building an image for himself in Mangalagiri constituency.
Ramakrishna Reddy is one of the strongest leaders in YCP and he enjoys a great following in Mangalagiri. Lokesh will have to be on the top of his game if he is to unsettle Ramakrishna Reddy.
Lokesh is left with no other option but to register a victory next time around as a defeat here would yield disastrous results.
