Several debates were carried on about the president candidate of AP BJP and the committee convener of election management. Purandeswari Daggubati, Manikyala Rao, Somu Veerraju and few other names were heard to be on cards for the respective positions.
To everyone’s surprise, Kanna Lakshminarayana has been elected as the president of AP BJP and Somu Veerraju as state convener of elections management committee. BJP has officially announced their posts and the followers appear to be pleased with the decision.
It is known that Kanna Lakshminarayana who had been in Congress for a long time, joined BJP last year. Reportedly, he almost made a choice to join YSRCP but health issues made him postpone the decision. Sources say that Amit Shah, the president of BJP advised Kanna to stay in BJP by offering him a superior post.
