Mercurial Ganta Srinivasa Rao is giving sleepless nights to AP Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu. Ganta wants to contest from Bheemili assembly constituency again. But, Chandrababu wants Bheemili from him. Initially, it was said that Babu's son Lokesh would contest from Bheemili. But later, it turned out that Chandrababu Naidu wanted the seat for CBI former joint director VV Lakshminarayana. But, Ganta has no intention to vacate the seat for anyone. He knows he can register an easy win from Bheemili. So, he does not want to cede his territory.

Chandrababu reportedly told Ganta that he should vacate Bheemili and contest for Lok Sabha. He told Ganta that the TDP needs a strong candidate for the Lok Sabha seat. But, Ganta is unhappy about it. So, he has suddenly gone underground is not available to anyone.

He told his family members that he would go to Amaravati, but reached Hyderabad. He is not in touch with anyone. Now, Babu has no way of knowing where Ganta Srinivasa Rao is. But, sources close to Ganta reveal that he has decided to leave the TDP if he is not given Bheemili seat and would join some other party if needed. All this has put Chandrababu in a spot.
