    In Andhra Pradesh, Brahmins are being ignored by major political parties despite making up 0.83% of the state’s population. The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) has never given a ticket to a Brahmin candidate in recent elections. This contrasts with past practices, where Brahmins were included in political positions.

    Under N T Rama Rao, Brahmins like Karanam Ramachandra Rao were included in the Cabinet. However, since Chandrababu Naidu took over, Brahmins have been phased out from the TDP’s power dynamics. In contrast, YS Rajasekhara Reddy and YS Jagan Mohan Reddy have accommodated Brahmins in electoral politics.
