According to media reports, Pratap Reddy is pitching for Lok Sabha seat of Nandyal in 2019. Considered as the local strongman who understands the nitty gritty of the Kurnool politics enjoys good support from his community. He was one of the candidate of YSRC for Nandyal by poll, but the exit of former minister Silpa Mohan Reddy from the TDP zeroed the prospect of Pratap Reddy.
Gangula Pratap Reddy’s brother Prabhakar after quitting TDP immediately joined hands with opposition party YSR Congress and also got elected as an MLC in March.
Commenting on the political development YSR leader Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy, who is political secretary of party Supremo Jagan Mohan Reddy said that his defection ahead of the polls would not make any major dent in upcoming Nandyal poll.
