For about 30 years, Kadapa leaders Adinarayana Reddy and Ramasubba Reddy had huge rivalry. Both being in the same party never helped each other in fact attacked one another on multiple occasions.
Like they say for everything there is an end, the rivalry between Adinarayana Reddy and Ramasubba Reddy appears to have faded away. Chandrababu Naidu is said to have mediated between these Kadapa leaders and for the first time in their political career ever, they came before the media side by side and made a joint statement that they would work together in Kadapa.
As suggested by Naidu, Ramasubba Reddy has resigned to his MLC post and confirmed his berth for Jammalamadugu assembly while Adinarayana Reddy will contest for Kadapa Parliament seat.
This is a moral victory for TDP in Kadapa ahead of the elections. Recently the only elected TDP MLA Meda Mallikarjuna Reddy jumped to YSRCP and TDP had to takers. With Adinarayana Reddy and Ramasubba Reddy joining hands, they can influence and show their stamina in seven assembly segments in Kadapa.
