MLC Nara Lokesh shook hands with YCP Ministers (Deputy CM Amzad Basha, Education Minister Adimulapu Suresh) and exchanged pleasantries with MLA Anam Ramanarayana Reddy in the Assembly Lobby. Thereafter, He greeted BJP Leader Somu Veerraju, who comes down heavily on Chandrababu Naidu all the time, with folded hands.
Political Observers wondered whether Nara Lokesh would dare to step into Legislative Council after the humiliating defeat. There were even speculations that he would be tendering his resignation to the MLC Post instead of continuing for the full term. Much to everyone's shock, Lokesh went directly to the Assembly Lobby Today and appeared as if he is okay with the people's mandate.
Few Netizens had even passed a joke that Nara Lokesh might be happy that he isn't the Assembly when YCP won 151 Seats.
