Pulivendula, April 16 : Ms Vijaya Lakshmi, wife of late Chief Minister Dr. Y S Rajasekhara Reddy filed her nomination for the Pulivendula Assembly seat as YSR Congress candidate on Saturday. She has gone to the Tehsildar office and handed over two sets of nomination papers to the RDO.
Her son and YSR Congress president, Ms Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy and Mr Y S Bhaskar Reddy have also participated in the nomination filing programme. Earlier, Ms Vijayamma came to the Tehsildar’s office in a big rally, followed by party workers and a large number of admirers of the family.
Nine nominations including those of Ms. Vijaya Lakshmi, her brother-in-law Mr. Y S Vivekananda Reddy (Congress) and B. Tech Ravi (TDP) were so far filed in Pulivendula. Apart from Vijayalakshmi, three other Vijaya Lakshmis — J O Vijaya Lakshmi, E. Vijaya Lakshmi and O Vijaya Lakshmi have also filed their nominations.
The YSR Congress is alleging that the ruling Congress party has made all these Vijaya Lakshmis file their nominations to confuse the voters. Likewise, apart from Mr Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, one more Jaganmohan Reddy has filed his nomination in the Kadapa Lok Sabha constituency.
