Telugu Desam Party allotted MLA and MP Tickets for many Leaders from the Reddy Community especially in the Rayalaseema Region to nullify the impact of YSR Congress. This caste equation hasn't worked for TDP at all in the recent elections. Not even a single Reddy Candidate of TDP got elected to either Assembly or Lok Sabha.
The situation is so bad that JC Prabhakar Reddy's Son Ashmit Reddy faced defeat in Tadipatri. Never been before JC Family had encountered strong opposition in this Assembly Constituency in the past few decades. For the first time, JCs had to remain on the losing side.
Ahead of polling, JC Diwakar Reddy had proudly declared that whoever contests against them in Tadipatri won't be receiving more than few thousands of votes. 2019 Election Results came as rude shock to JC Family. While Tadipatri YCP Candidate Peddareddy defeated JC Ashmit Reddy, Anantapur YCP Candidate defeated JC Pavan Reddy.
None of the Reddy Candidates of TDP in AP emerged victorious because not only Reddys but all Communities came in support of Jagan during 2019 Elections.
