Raghurama Krishna Raju to contest as MLA from TDP:- Narasapuram's incumbent MP, K Raghurama Krishna Raju (RRR), is now turning to the TDP for hope since he was unable to secure a BJP ticket. He has expressed his desire to run for office either in the Undi Assembly constituency or the Vizianagaram Lok Sabha seat. Raghurama Krishna Raju made it clear that he will be running for re-election in the Narsapuram Lok Sabha constituency under the banner of either the TDP, BJP, or Jana Sena. Having established close relationships with all three parties, Raghurama is confident that any one of them will grant him a ticket. It has been reported that he resigned from the YSRCP and his MP position recently. Reliable sources have indicated that he was originally planning to join the TDP in February, but ultimately decided against it in order to pursue a candidacy with the BJP. On the other hand, Raghurama is now making allegations that YSRCP leader YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, in collusion with former BJP State president Somu Veerraju, conspired to prevent him from securing the BJP seat. As part of the alliance between the TDP, JSP, and BJP, the BJP has already finalized its candidates for six MP seats in Andhra Pradesh.

After the subsequent negotiations, the BJP emerged victorious in Rajampeta, leaving the seat vacant. As a result, the TDP secured the Vizianagaram seat. According to reliable sources, the TDP plans to nominate Raghurama Krishna Raju as their candidate for Vizianagaram. The party believes that Raghurama, who has always fought against Jagan Mohan Reddy's corrupt practices as a rebel MP for YSRCP, should be elected as an MP. A senior TDP leader confirmed that Raghurama also played a significant role in the legal battle in New Delhi following Chandrababu Naidu's arrest, and the party is committed to standing by him. Raghurama's supporters are actively campaigning in Bhimavaram, assuring the people that he will meet Chandrababu Naidu and officially join the TDP within the next two days.

It was already evident that the BJP would secure the Narasapuram Lok Sabha seat and nominate B Srinivasa Varma as their candidate. Neither Raghurama nor the TDP oppose this decision by the BJP. In case the TDP cannot offer him a ticket to contest from the Vizianagaram Lok Sabha constituency, the party leadership is preparing to provide Raghurama with an opportunity to be elected as an MLA from the Undi constituency.
