In a high-voltage campaign for Nandamuri Suhasini, the Telugu Desam Party tried its best to ensure that it wins the seat. However, Suhasini lost. Now, rumours are rife that senior TDP leader E. Peddi Reddy has been staying away from party activities for a while.
According TDP cadre in Telangana, TDP Chief N. Chandrababu Naidu made a huge mistake by giving the Kukatpally segment to Suhasini even when Peddi Reddy had approach the TDP High Command and had the chances of winning from there. But, by rejecting Peddi Reddy who was also a former minister and giving the seat to Harikrishna's family, Telugu Desam not only is losing a senior leader but also spurning those who are dedicated to the party.
Despite knowing of Peddi Reddy's popularity, TDP Chief's decision has turned out to be costly in Telangana. Now with just one MLA left in Telangana Telugu Desam, the party is almost on the verge of fading, say political observers!
