In 2014 Elections, TDP-BJP Combine managed to win all the 15 Assembly Seats and 3 Parliament Seats in West Godavari. Thanks to Pawan Kalyan for backing these parties at the crucial phase, or else YSR Congress might have bagged at least half of the seats.
Whichever party wins maximum number of seats in Godavari Districts will be able to form the government in AP as per the history. YCP managed to win only 5 out of 34 Seats here and that made a huge difference. This is why these districts were so crucial for any party to get get hold of the power.
AP CM Chandrababu Naidu considered many constituencies for his Son Nara Lokesh but finally decided to sacrifice his own seat, Kuppam. TDP Supremo decided to move to another constituency after 30 years. He seems to be keen to contest from any of the Assembly Segments in West Godavari to ensure TDP wins as many seats as possible.
As per buzz, Naidu could prefer contesting from Nidadavolu which is represented by TDP MLA Burugupally Sesha Rao who won twice. In the last elections, He won against YCP Leader Rajeev Krishnan with a majority of 6,300 votes. This time, Sesha Rao and his Brother are keen to contest from Nidadavolu. If Babu makes up his mind, He could allot another constituency or MLC seat for Sesha Rao.
Nidadavolu falls in Rajahmundry Parliament Segment. Kamma, Kapu and Raju Community Votes are high in this segment. Needless to say that Chandrababu Naidu choose West Godavari district to nullify the affect of Pawan Kalyan.
