The meeting between Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu and Madanapalle MLA Desai Thippa Reddy on Saturday raised fresh speculation that yet another YCP wicket was going down shortly. Desai Thippa Reddy met Chandrababu as soon as the latter arrived from Vijayawada to Madanapalle.
However, in the wake of the recent instances of YCP leaders meeting the ruling TDP brass, settling the terms for their entry into ruling party, even while denying any hanky panky, and subsequently donning the yellow upper cloth, all confirm that Desai Thippa Reddy is also going the ruling TDP way.
Madanapalle falls in Chittoor district, which is the native district of Chandrababu. For all one knows, Chandrababu may have gone to Madanapalle because it is relatively cool place as compared to Vijayawada, which is also known as Bezawada. Naturally the local MLA would like to meet the Chief Minister when he arrives there first thing in terms of protocol.
