Amaravati has become a political issue these days, YSRC and TDP want to win majority assembly seats in Guntur district in 2024 elections to prove their stand on state capital Amaravati. Though the YSRC is aiming for a clean sweep as part of its Mission 175, it will not be that easy due to infighting in the party. The TDP, on the other hand, is making every effort to regain its lost prestige in the district, but its failure to maintain a strong cadre at the grassroots level is a cause for concern.

The YSRCP had won 15 of the total 17 assembly seats in the district in the 2019 elections. Of the three Lok Sabha seats, the ruling YSRC won Narasaraopet and Bapatala, while Guntur went to the TDP in 2019.

Most senior TDP leaders, including former ministers Prathipati Pulla Rao and Nakka Anand Babu, tasted defeat. The defeat of five-time MLA Dhulipalla Narendra in Ponnuru had weakened the party to a great extent.

After the bifurcation of the state, the political scenario in Guntur changed with Amaravati becoming the state capital. In the 2014 elections, the TDP won 12 assembly seats and the YSRC 5. The YSRC government’s proposal to set up three capitals as part of its decentralized development plan caused a political stir among farmers in the capital region, who wanted to sell their land. Strongly opposes this for the development of Amravati.

There is open disagreement among YSRC cadres against Tadikonda MLA Undavalli Sridevi when it comes to the ruling party’s strength and weakness. While Sridevi had expressed her dissatisfaction over the appointment of MLC Dokka Manikya Varaprasad as an additional regional coordinator and later as district party in-charge, TDP is not in a position to take advantage of it due to lack of strong leadership, say analysts .
