YSR Congress party's list naming 175 assembly candidates for the Andhra Pradesh elections has called for a protest from few aspirants who were ignored a ticket. Some of them are meeting their cadre to design the next action plan and few are is discussions with other parties.
One of the unhappy aspirants from YSRCP is Yelamanchili Ravi (Vijayawada East). He was hoping for party ticket until the last minute, he could not find his name in the final list. Based on the survey conducted by Prashant Kishore team, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy offered this ticket to Bopanna Bhava Kumar. So, the dissatisfied leader is now planning to file nomination as an independent after meeting with supporters in constituency. His followers want him to contest the election at any cost.
On other hand, Jana Sena Party is rumored to have offered Vijayawada East ticket to Ravi and sources close to him reveal that Jana Sena asked him to file nomination papers on 21st of March. However, there is no official confirmation from Pawan's party in this matter.
