Ganta Srinivas Rao has emerged as a leader in a very short time. He is a soft-spoken leader. However, his strategy will be firm. He is leader who knows what he needs and what his party chief needs. He has friends in all parties. Ganta Srinivas Rao is not the one to make enemies. He is also known as trouble shooter. All want him to have in their party. YSRCP also wants the same. It even invited Ganta Srinivas Rao. He too wanted to go. All arrangements were made but minister Avanti Srinivas is said to have come in between as a hurdle. Overall, without Ganta being in YSRCP, GVMC elections are being conducted.
Visakhapatnam mayor’s post is YSRCP’s dream. This is because conquering Vizag is Jagan’s wish for six years. Whoever fulfills this wish will be the hero. With that confidence Jagan made Avanti a minister. Avanti is a powerful leader in terms of social group. Similarly he has 10-year-long political experience. Besides this, a strategy is also required. Rivals have to be made to bite the dust. Whether Avanti will achieve this is something which will be known only in the local body elections. Avanti should be considered great only if he ensures party’s victory.
There is a talk that Ganta Srinivas Rao is not in the party with the kind of enthusiasm he had previously. He has reconciled to the fact that whatever he does, he will have to sit in the opposition for another four years. Moreover, considering the TDP’s approach he is said to be of the view that he should take the risk. Except Babu the party leadership has no future. What happens if Jagan returns to power in 2024. Ganta Srinivas Rao is said to be thinking on these lines. That’s why despite crossing all the limits, he restrained himself from taking the final step.
All followers of Ganta Srinivas Rao are said to have given up. While some have directly joined YSRCP, others quit the party but are indirectly supporting it. This situation is completely advantageous for YSRCP. If the party makes use of the same and moves forward with appropriate strategy and planning victory can be achieved. Can Avanti do this. GVMC results alone will show what is his excellence. Does Avanti has the capability to tell all that he is the leader for the entire party. Challenges further improve the leaders. If Avanti succeeds in achieving the target, Visakhapatnam district may see emergence of another Ganta Srinivas Rao.
