Chief Minister Y S Jaganmohan Reddy is giving surprises to his predecessor and TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu one after the other.
First, Jaganmohan Reddy, by announcing that all MLAs would be honorary chairpersons of the local market yards, had made Naidu the honorary chairman of Kuppam market yard, which is represented by the TDP chief in the Assembly.
Now, in a second attempt, Jaganmohan Reddy had upgraded the Kuppam gram panchayat into Municipality, along with 49 other gram panchayats across the State.
The State government had issued orders upgrading 50 major gram panchayats into municipalities in the State and Kuppam is one of them.
The chief minister had so much on his “to do” list for Kuppam in the days to come.
All that is to do greater things for this town, which Chandrababu Naidu could not do all through his political career, as he has been representing the constituency since 1989.
Though Chandrababu Naidu entered politics from Chandragiri Assembly constituency in 1978 and lost the subsequent 1983 elections on Congress ticket, he moved to Kuppam in 1989 after his defection to the TDP. Since then, he had been winning this constituency, though not developed the area much as expected.
It is to be seen what more surprises are in store for Chandrababu Naidu in his home turf, Kuppam, under Jaganmohan Reddy’s regime.
