Though YSRCP made a clean sweep in 2019 Andhra Pradesh Assembly elections, it could not achieve the same feat in Vizag.
YSRCP lost to TDP in al the four Assembly seats in Vizag.
AP CM YS Jaganmohan Reddy has decided to make Vizag as executive capital of AP.
In this backdrop, Jagan is making moves to strengthen his party in Vizag.
He started 'operation akarsh' to engineering defection of MLAs in TDP from Vizag.
Recently, Vizag Sourth TDP MLA Vasupalli Ganesh Kumar joined YSRCP.
Speculations are rife that two more TDP MLAs from Vizag are all set to join YSRCP soon.
They are Vizag West MLA P Ganababu and Vizag North MLA Ganta Srinivasa Rao.
Both are reportedly in touch with Jagan and keen to enter into YSRCP soon.
Jagan is also trying to take the fourth and final TDP MLA from Vizag East constituency V Ramakrishnababu, known to be a strong supporter of TDP and Chandrababu Naidu.
He is yet to accept Jagan' offer. Jagan is reportedly luring them with various nominated posts if they quit TDP and join YSRCP.
