Ravi Babu refutes Giddi Eswari’s allegations
Monday, November 27, 2017
Former Congress MLA K.Ravi Babu who is all set to re-join the YSRCP has refuted the allegations of Giddi Eswari’s allegations that the YSRCP leadership is contemplating giving him MLA ticket replacing her in the 2019 elections.
‘Her allegations is baseless. I am from Araku and not Paderu. She has no right to comment on Araku, which is not her constituency. I had won on the Congress party ticket in 2004 from S.Kota, which then comprised S.Kota, Araku, Dumbriguda and Anantagiri. I have nothing to do with Paderu and her apprehensions have no base’, he said. It may be recalled that Giddi Eswari immediately after joining TDP speaking to media said that the YSRCP was considering Ravi Babu as the MLA candidate in the 2019 general elections.
According to sources, Ravi Babu said Giddi Eswari was actually keen on joining the TDP and that was why she had been making such allegations. She wanted to install her candidate in Araku so that she could have full control over the Visakhapatnam Agency. In 2009, Ravi Babu joined the YSRCP but was denied ticket in 2014 after which he quite the party and contested as an independent but lost the election.
It may be recalled that Paderu MLA Giddi Eswari on Monday joined the TDP in presence of party chief Chandrababu Naidu.
