Kadiri Baburao is the former MLA of Kanigiri in Prakasam District. He is known to be the close buddy of Nandamuri Balakrishna. This Ex-MLA who faced defeat contesting from Darsi in the recent Assembly Polls is now contemplating on joining YSRC.
In 2014 Polls, Kadiri Baburao got elected as Kanigiri MLA. He, however, was forced to contest from Darsi in 2019 Elections inspite of lacking grip on this Constituency. TDP Leadership made Baburao sacrifice Kanigiri Seat for the Family of Former Minister Sidda Raghava Rao. Kanigiri Ticket was allotted to Sidda Sudheer in the previous elections. Baburao expressed his displeasure over the change of constituency openly. That is when Chandrababu Naidu asked Balakrishna to intervene and convince his friend. Baburao moved to Darsi after Balayya had a word with him but ended up facing defeat. Since then, He wasn't actively participating in the party activities.
Baburao isn't happy with the domination of a community in Prakasam TDP. He feels there is no future for Telugu Desam in Prakasam District.
