AMARAVATI: Government Advisor and YSRCP General Secretary Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy said that Dasari Sudha will be YSRCP candidate for the Budvel assembly by-election scheduled for October 30.
Speaking to media here on Tuesday, he said that the Party sticks to the tradition of giving ticket to the family person of the deceased MLA, which leaves Dr Dasari Venkata Subbaiah's wife Dasari Sudha as a natural choice. Should TDP follow the tradition, the election would be unanimous, and if the Opposition fields a candidate, we are certain to win with a huge margin.
Further, Sajjala said that there is no comparison between Nandyal and Badvel by-elections, as the former Chief Minister Chandrababu took it as a big challenge by splurging over Rs 100 crore. However, this election is an opportunity to say what the government has done in the last two years and there is a need to know what public opinion is like. The results of a series of elections from 2019 to date have proved that the people are always on the side of Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and will continue the same.
Responding to the comments made by Jana Sena Party Chief Pawan Kalyan, he asserted that the State government is trying to do good for the film industry by being a facilitator with the online ticket system. While few sections of the industry are welcoming the government’s ideas, Pawan Kalyan has been trying to sling mud. He said that some prominent people in the film industry are considering him as a huge burden to the industry, and fear of getting in trouble for being with him. He said that the State government is ready to cooperate with the film industry and even distributors, exhibitors were happy with the online ticketing system as this would lead to transparency. If the film industry still has any doubts, it can meet the Chief Minister any time and get them clarified, he said.
