The party launched with claims to bring back ‘Rajjanna Rajyam’, seems to be struggling with the existential crisis now. Set aside bringing a revolutionary change in the state politics as claimed, YSRTP launched by YS Sharmila is now struggling to rope in leaders and activists.
The dharnas and interviews taken up Sharmila are not helping to boost the morale of party workers but are reportedly making the party chief’s inexperience evident. While the political circles are rife with speculations that the party is close to getting shelved, Sharmila held a long meeting with political strategist Prashant Kishor who previously worked wonders for YSRCP chief Jagan.
The team PK reportedly met Sharmila at her Lotus Pond residence to discuss the strategy to strengthen and expand the party. Sources have it that the team discussed concerns to be addressed in Sharmila’s padayatra which was scheduled to start on October 18th.
It can be noted that Sharmila in her recent interviews with journalist Radha Krishna discursively confirmed that she would hire PK for poll campaigning. “As a brother, he promised to stand by me and help. However, we are yet to talk formally in person, about when to begin the process,” she added.
With less than one and half years in hand will team PK succeed in repeating the Jagan-2017 poll campaign magic..?
