The Prajarajyam Party is facing a peculiar problem with several senior party leaders being flooded with complaints from aspirants that their candidatures were rejected by some top brass in PRP only to ensure the victory of Congress and grand alliance candidates in several key places.
The news assumes significance as PRP president K Chiranjeevi has been denying reports of “match-fixing” and asserted that the names of PRP aspirants were finalised taking into consideration factors like social and caste composition, winnability, independent survey reports and feedback from party workers.
Lending credence to reports of “match-fixing” by some top PRP leaders, an aspirant from Hyderabad district, who was denied a ticket on the ground that the survey reports did not favour him, said the party had fielded weak candidates in some of the 29 constituencies in Hyderabad and Rangareddy with the sole purpose of helping candidates from the Congress and the grand alliance.
He accused a senior PRP leader of indulging in “matchfixing” by fielding weak candidates in Hyderabad district to help his friends and relatives in the Congress, TRS and TDP. Incidentally, the PRP senior leader and one of the Assembly candidates hail from the same community and grew up together.
Another aspirant from Qutbullahpur said that the claim that the PRP had conducted independent surveys to identify candidates was far from the truth as the party gave tickets to people who had quit their parent party 24 hours before being announced as PRP candidates. A case in point was the allocation of Gadwal assembly seat in Mahbubnagar district to TDP leader Gattu Bheemudu and that of D K Srinivas, son of TTD chairperson Adi Kesavulu Naidu, as the Lok Sabha nominee from Rajampet in Kadapa.
A PRP insider cited another example wherein a Congress strongman from north coastal Andhra was in constant contact with the top brass in PRP before the list of 34 assembly candidates was finalized during the first phase of elections. “It is almost a case of match-fixing in north coastal Andhra, whereby candidates were decided at the behest of the Congress strongman. This Congressman was in the news prominently for his role in an alleged scam that almost rocked the YSR government,” he said.
Similar complaints of “unholy” alliances have also started pouring in from Prakasam, Guntur and Chittoor districts.
