However, TDP Leadership seems to be skeptical about fielding Nara Lokesh in Bheemili Constituency after the issuance of Election Schedule. If the elections are scheduled to happen in 6th or 7th Phase, Chandrababu Naidu wouldn't have hesitated to go ahead with the decision. But now, Elections are going to happen in the First Phase itself.
Nara Lokesh will have to shift to Bheemili and mobilise all the resources in just one month. It's not going to be an easy thing to do especially when all the Surveys have been favouring YCP. Lokesh will end up facing criticism if he faces defeat or wins with a slight margin. So, TDP Leadership won't be taking any such risk at least in the first attempt.
