Nandyal: 4 of 5 Big Families Support TDP


TDP600Ahead of the scheduled by-poll in Nandyal on August 23, ruling TDP is confident of prevailing over Opposition YSRC party as it has the support of 4 of the 5 big families in the region.

For the last 50 years or so, only five families – Bhuma, S P Y Reddy, Gangula Pratap Reddy, Md Farooq and Silpa families have been holding all the cards in Kurnool district politics. For the upcoming Nandyal by-poll, except the Silpa family, all the remaining four influential families are supporting TDP.

Silpa Mohan Reddy, who lost the 2014 Assembly elections contesting in Nandyal constituency on TDP ticket, has joined YSRC party just ahead of the by-poll and is contesting against TDP this time.

The ruling TDP however is confident of pulling off a victory since its candidate belongs to Bhuma family, and also because they have the support of the remaining three big families.
