    In Andhra Pradesh, as the Lok Sabha and Assembly elections approach, many political leaders are switching parties. The YSRCP has seen several high-profile exits recently, causing concern within the party.

    One prominent figure, MLC Dokka Manikya Varaprasad Rao, was disappointed after the party chose to field someone else in his constituency. Rumors suggest he may join the TDP or Congress. Another party MLC, Md Iqbal, resigned from his post last week, citing personal reasons. Speculation is rife that he may join the TDP.
