Physiotherapist Dr Gurumurthy will contest in Tirupati Lok Sabha by-election on behalf of YSRCP.
Tirupati by-polls have taken a dramatic turn as the CM of Andhra Pradesh Jagan Mohan Reddy took a surprising decision.
CM Jagan has chosen his physiotherapist Dr Gurumurthy to contest in Tirupati Lok Sabha by-election on behalf of YSRCP.Earlier, everyone thought late Balli Durga Prasad’s son, Balli Kalyan Chakravarthy would get the chance.
However, CM Jagan offered him an MLC seat.
According to Municipal Administration Minister Botsa Satyanarayana, Jagan Mohan Reddy has promised an MLC post to Balli Durga Prasad’s family, and reportedly, the wife and son of late Durga Prasad have accepted the offer.
One of them will get the MLC, whenever it becomes vacant.While speaking to media, Balli Kalyan Chakravarthy said his family would be grateful to Jagan forever, as he promised an MLC.
Meanwhile, Gurumurthy has been very close to Jagan as a personal caretaker.He accompanied Jagan round the clock during Padayatra, and it paid off now.Reportedly, the decision came when the main opposition party, Telugu Desam has announced former union minister Panabaka Lakshmi as its candidate for Tirupati by-polls.
