Amaravathi : Unconfirmed rumor from Amaravathi is that, A senior leader and a long standing member of a regional party wanted to contest for the parliament from Guntur district but he is being denied the ticket. His supporters and well wishers hoped he would get the be the candidate. Instead, he is confined to being an MLA candidate from his current constituency.
Though the leader has a good will in the party for being a senior and because of development activities in his own constituency but in the recent years there have allegations of rampant corruption by his close family. Rumor is that, there is even a tax called KST. Maybe these reasons made the party to confine this senior leader to his current assembly constituency, although it will be an uphill battle for the leader to win with such allegations.
