Pulivendula: YSR Congress President Mr. Y S Jaganmohan Reddy would be filing his nomination for the Kadapa Lok Sabha seat on the 15th of this month. His mother Vijayamma would file nomination for the Pulivendula assembly constituency on the next day.
The Election Commission has announced that by polls to these two constituencies would be held on May 8th from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Byelection to the Pulivendula seat was caused by the resignation of Vijayamma, wife of the late Chief Minister Dr. Y S Rajasekhara Reddy and the Kadapa seat was vacated by Mr. Jaganmohan Reddy, protesting against the treatment meted out to him by the congress high command.
Congress, TDP and the YSR Congress have taken the byelections as a prestige issue and have been making all arrangements to win them at any cost.
