Another leader of Telugu Desham has left the party. Former legislator of Chittoor assembly constituency, AS Manohar sent his resignation to the party president on Thursday and said that he will be away from politics for some time. Speaking to media on Thursday, ex-MLA said that he will soon reveal about future political plans.
Having joined as TDP convenor for Chittoor constituency in 1994, Manohar lost to CK Babu in the elections same year. Later in 1995, he won municipal elections with a massive majority of 26,000 votes. Again, he lost to CK Babu in the general elections in 1999. In 2004, Manohar emerged as triumphant and joined YSR Congress in 2009.
After Jagan Mohan Reddy denied him party ticket in 2014, he stayed away from all party activities and joined back TDP before 2019 elections. However, he lost to J Srinivasulu this time. Since then, Manohar has been serving as Chittoor TDP incharge leader.
So, future looks uncertain for Manohar in YSR Congress Party which denied him a ticket in 2014.
