TDP Leadership offered Srikalahasti Assembly Ticket for Former Minister Bojjala Gopala Krishna Reddy's Son Sudhir Reddy.
Until recently, There were reports that Chandrababu Naidu is willing to offer MLA Ticket for Bojjala but not for his Son. However, Bojjala managed to mount pressure and convince Babu that he should offer MLA Ticket to his Son citing health issues.
SCV Naidu lobbied for Srikalahasti MLA Ticket. He even publicized as if Party Leadership has finalised him as the candidate for 2019 Elections. In the end, Bojjala Family managed to obtain the ticket with lobbying.
The association between Chandrababu Naidu and Bojjala Gopala Krishna Reddy has been continuing since decades. Though Babu sacked him from his cabinet few years ago citing age factor, Bojjala is still capable of getting the desired ticket for his political successor.
