Tirupati by-election: TDP candidate not interested at all?

A few weeks ago TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu announced that the party will be fielding Panabaka Lakshmi in the forthcoming Tirupati by-election.

However, Lakshmi is not active in election planning. She is not taking part in party meetings either.

Chandrababu Naidu, and TDP’s election strategist Robin Sharma have camped in Tirupati and holding meetings with the party cadre but Panabaka Lakshmi is not a part of these plans.

It is being said that Panabaka Lakshmi is not interested in contesting on TDP ticket and that is the reason why she is distancing herself ahead of the election.

Apparently, the senior politician wants to get into BJP and she is also in touch with the party bigwigs.

It remains to be seen if TDP will come in touch with Panabaka Lakshmi and persuade her to stay proactive in election campaigning.
