Tough contest on cards at Dhone where TDP and YSRCP have fielded two political strongmen in the poll-fray


TIRUPATI: The Dhone assembly constituency in Nandyal district is poised for an intense battle for votes, as the YSRCP and the TDP have fielded two political strongmen with decades old political legacies in the poll-fray.
While the ruling party has re-fielded finance minister Buggana Rajendranath Reddy, who is aiming for his hat-trick victory in the upcoming elections, the TDP has fielded former union minister of state for railways and three time Kurnool MP Kotla Jayasurya Prakash Reddy, at the Dhone assembly constituency.
Both political stalwarts in their own rights, Buggana and Kotla, are engaged in an intense war of words over a variety of issues, with just 10 odd days left for the polling day.
Though Buggana is confident of his hattrick victory in the upcoming elections, Kotla Jayasurya Prakash Reddy is leaving no stone unturned to end Buggana’s winning streak at the Dhone assembly.
While Buggana has tried to accuse the Kotla family of alienating the constituency for almost 15 years and now resurfacing at Dhone only after Kotla Jayasurya Prakash Reddy’s candidature was declared by the TDP, Kotla has hit back at Buggana, by pointing out to his inaccessibility and by pointing fingers at the abnormal spike in his personal wealth in the last five years in particular, which he even failed to declare properly in his election affidavit.
The duo haven’t confined to mere verbal duel but have also engaged in a judicial tussle, after Kotla moved the judiciary, challenging the action of the returning officer, in approving the incomplete election affidavit submitted by Buggana.
Speaking to TOI, Kotla alleged that Buggana didn’t disclose his entire wealth in his affidavit submitted along with his nomination papers. “Several columns were incomplete but yet his nomination was accepted by the returning officer despite discrepancies found in the election affidavit”, Kotla added.
While the war of words between the duo is expected to further intensify in the run-up to the polling day, various key issues such as failure of the govt in the declaration of drought mandals, drinking water crisis, backwardness, unemployment, pending irrigation projects, etc are all going to play a decisive role in the poll outcome for sure.
