Yesterday, Telugu Desam Party Vizag south MLA Vasupalli Ganesh left the party and he will be openly supporting YSRCP. He formally met with the chief minister YS Jagan and said he is happy to side with YSRC.

Today, TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu called for a meeting with TDP leaders in Vizag constituency and made a couple of interesting remarks.

“We(TDP forces) need not worry if a few spineless people leave the party. The MLA was pressurised to join YSRCP. Anyway, people like those don’t have a place in our party and there is nothing to worry about,” he said with TDP Vizag leaders.

Naidu went on to say that Vizag is TDP’s fortress and they will be coming back stronger in the next election.

Notably, TDP has already lost 4 MLAs to YSRCP till now. The party currently has 19 MLAs on its side and will need to have at least 18 MLAs to be recognised as opposition party.
