The TDP in Tamballapalli constituency has been left shocked by Telugu Nadu state vice-president Katta Doraswamy Naidu, who has defied the party dictat and has decided to file his nomination as a rebel candidate.
Naidu has been active in the TDP for the past 12 years and has carved a niche for himself in the party. He has come to the rescue of the party when powerful and hugely influential AV family left the TDP. He spent from his pocket to revive the party in the constituency and tried to popularise the Government schemes.
Naidu had worked for the victory of Shankar Yadav during the 2014 elections. Hence he is all set to leverage these contacts and connections for himself this time. He is set to file the papers on Friday.
