An altogether unheard name is taking Guntur Lok Sabha constituency by storm. That name is Lavu Srikrishnadevarayalu. He is the son of Lavu Rattaiah of the Vignan group of educational institutions.
Lavu Rattaiah joined the YSRCP before 2014 elections, but chose not to contest. He did, however, financially back YSRCP candidates in a significant way. But, this time around Rattaiah is putting forward his son into the fray. Even YS Jagan is responding positively to this. So, in all possibility, he is likely to be the YSRCP candidate from the Guntur Lok Sabha constituency.
A number of factors are proving favourable to him. Former MP and candidate last time Balashourie is also keeping away from active politics. Srikrishnadevarayalu is already touring the district widely an dis meeting various sections of the society. He has the necessary financial muscle to take on the might of the TDP. He will also be able to support the MLAs very well. The party cadres are happy.
