TSR was responding to the dispute between him and Purandareswari over the Visakhapatnam Lok Sabha seat.
Stating that Purandareswari herself wanted Narasaraopet constituency as it was presently vacant, Subbarami Reddy said he would contest from Visakhaptnam in 2014. He asked the media not to make a controversy over the seat. He said he met Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Thursday and informed her of the development he had achieved in Visakhapatnam. As his Rajya Sabha membership was ending shortly, he said he was aspiring to contest from Visakha and said he had the strength to win the seat.
It may be mentioned here that Purandareswari is presently representing Visakhapatnam, which was represented by Subbrami Reddy earlier. Now he is again trying to get his seat back. It may be recalled that TSR was fielded against the YSR Congress candidate Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy and was defeated in the by-election for the Nellore Lok Sabha seat by a margin of over two lakh votes.
