Munnema to join Jagan’s Party
Tupakula Munemma came to limelight with PRP Mahila Sadassu in Hyderabad. She attracted the attention of Chiranjeevi with her impressive speech during a metting and after that the PRP Chief declared Munemma as PRP’s first candidate to contest the 2009 general elections.
She contested the Assembly elections from Kovvur constituency in Nellore, but lost it to TDP candidate Nallapureddy Prasanna Kumar Reddy. Around 21,000 votes have been polled to Munemma. After losing elections, the PRP leadership neglected this Dalit woman and she was not even offered any posts in the party.
TDP MLA Nallapureddy Prasanna Kumar Reddy got attracted to YSR’s Akash. Later, he moved to Jagan Camp and also resigned for his MLA post. In case of by-elections, Nallapureddy Prasanna Kumar Reddy would be contesting the elections as a YSR Congress candidate. So, he is now focussing on the ‘Yanadi’ community, who holds the majority share of votes in the Kovvur constituency. For that, Prasanna Kumar Reddy is in talks with their leader Munemma.
However, Munemma condemned the reports that she would be joining Jagan camp, instead of Congress after the merger of PRP. But the reports say, Munemma has recently met Nallapureddy Prasanna Kumar Reddy. If she joins hands with YS Jagan, then it might be a big boost to YSR Congress in Nellore. Let’s wait and see what happens!
