In fact, it had tried to pit even NTR's grand daughter and Harikrishna's daughter Suhasini from settler-dominated Kukatpally constituency. Suhasini lost so badly that it was seen as a clear sign that the TDP has no place in Telangana. That being the case, why did the TDP contest Huzurnagar bypoll, which does not improve its fortunes whatever the outcome? The TDP banked on 50000 settler votes,including 11000 Kamma votes, which it felt would fall into its lap like the ripe apples. But, its candidate Chava Kiranmayee got just 1827 votes. It was way behind an independent and a BJP candidate. Thus it stood in the fifth position.
After this disastrous result, it is clear that Chandrababu Naidu has actually sounded the death knell of the TDP in Telangana. Now, it is likely that the party will completely lapse into the oblivion.
