Suspense is running high among Praja Rajyam cadres in East Godavari with party chief Chiranjeevi yet to finalise candidates.
Congress and Telugu Desam have announced their candidates for 19 Assembly segments and three parliamentary constituencies, and the PRP aspirants had been hoping that the honcho would make his choice known during his five-day Praja Ankita Yatra.
Meanwhile, PRP is trying to field film hero of yesteryear Krishnam Raju from the Rajahmundry parliamentary constituency to face another glamorous face of yore Murali Mohan (TDP) and Congress candidate Undavalli Arun Kumar.
Raju is keen to contest the Kakinada parliamentary seat which he had won earlier as Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) candidate. If Krishnam Raju rejects the Rajahmundry ticket, the PRP chief will finalise the candidature of Margani Nageswara Rao or Jasti Murthy.
As for the Kakinada parliamentary constituency, PRP leader Chalamalasetti Sunil is vying for the ticket. What will happen if Krishnam Raju were given this is an interesting question.
For the Amalapuram parliamentary constituency, the PRP is trying to field Prameela, wife of former Mala Mahandu leader PV Rao.
The Assembly hopefuls are impatient, moreso since Congress and TDP candidates have already started electioneering.
But the PRP top brass seems apprehensive over the reaction of disappointed cadres at a time when the supremo is touring the district.
The wrath being faced by the party from cadres in Telangana and North Andhra districts has made them wary.
For their part, the cadres feel it would have been best for Chiranjeevi to make the announcement during the Praja Ankita Yatra and introduce the candidates to the people.
Meanwhile, Chiranjeevi has said he would announce the list after the completion of the yatra in the district.
