Will there be another serious turf war in north Andhra? Will two big families, be engaged in a battle for supremacy in the coming days?  Latest reports from Srikakulam suggest that Srikakulam MP Kinjarapu Rammohan Naidu is not inclined to contest for the MP post this time. He is said to be planning to contest for the assembly.

If this happens, it will profoundly alter the political equations in North Andhra. Sources say Rammohan Naidu wants to contest form Narasannapet assembly constituency. The constituency is the borough of the Dharmana family, which is the mainstay of the YSRCP in Srikakulam. What more? The TDP does not have a very flattering record in Narasannapet.

If Kinjarapu Rammohan Naidu chooses to contest from Narasanapet, this could mean an intense contest between two strong families. Sources also say that Rammohan Naidu's elder sister Adireddy Bhavani is likely to be made the MP candidate from Srikakulam. But will Bhavani, who is married off into Adireddy family in Rajahmundry, be able to retain the same appeal as that of Rammohan Naidu?

Meanwhile, there are reports that Dharmana Krishna Das may ask his son Chaitanya to contest in his place.  Similarly, Dharmana Prasada Rao may also ask his son Rammanohar Naidu to contest in his place. If and when that happens, it would be a fight between the young guns of two major political families of Srikakulam district.
