Former Minister Galla Aruna Kumari unsuccessfully contested 2014 General Elections on TDP ticket despite contesting from her native Chittoor district. Whereas, Her son Galla Jaydev managed to win from Guntur Parliament Segment in last elections.
Reportedly, Galla Aruna is upset over the fact that TDP Leadership failed to use her services in the past 2-and-a-half years. She was neither made an MLC nor District in-charge so far.
Since some time, Galla Aruna hasn’t been actively participating in party activities. She even gave a miss to party programmes when CM Chandrababu Naidu toured Chittoor district. In addition, Aruna’s supporters have put up banners and posters conveying Sankranthi wishes to people on her behalf in Chandragiri. Instead of pictures of TDP Chief, Photographs of Pawan Kalyan appeared on these publicity material. This gave scope to the buzz that Galla Aruna might join Jana Sena before 2019 Elections.
