Latest developments in BJP Andhra Pradesh has led to the change in state president. Daggubati Purandeshwari is the front runner for the post. BJP high command is not interested to continue with Kanna Lakshmi Narayana as state president. Inspite of Kanna Lakshmi Narayana requesting for extension in Tenure, BJP high command swiftly rejected the request and looking for new state president.
BJP high command is looking at Daggubati Purandeshwari, Manikyala Rao and MLC Madhav for the post. BJP high command is highly interested in handing over the post to Purandeshwari. As she is one of the daughters of Nandamuri Tarama Rama Rao and would be a tough bet against TDP. Apart from this, with the latest developments between Janasena and BJP, BJP won’t be interested in a Kapu leader.
Manikyala Rao belonging to Kapu community has very low chances of getting the post. MLC Madhav is a new face to the party. So considering all the probablities, BJP high command is betting on Purandeshwari for post of state president.
Meanwhile, Kanna Lakshmi Narayana is dissatisfied with the decision of BJP high command. Sources close to Kanna are saying he might migrate to YSRCP. In the early 2018 itself Kanna was in plans to join YSRCP, whereas when he was given with the post of BJP state president, he restrained himself from leaving BJP.
