Hyderabad: The Congress party is likely to announce it’s candidates for the Kadapa Lok Sabha and Pulivendula Assembly constituencies tomorrow.
The Chief Minister Mr. N. Kiran Kumar Reddy and the PCC President Mr. D. Srinivas held prolonged discussions with Kadapa district leaders including Ministers Y. S. Vivekananda Reddy, D.L. Ravindra Reddy, Mr Ahamedullah and Mr Kanna Laxminarayana to select a candidate for the Kadapa seat. However, despite the hectic parleys no decision could be taken at the meeting and it was decided to continue the meeting later in the evening.
In the evening also, discussions took place, but no final decision was taken. In the meanwhile, the TDP leaders from the District, Kandula brothers, have quit the TDP and decided to join the Congress, which is considered as a plus point for the party, which is facing tough opposition from YS Jaganmohan Reddy and Mrs Vijayamma, who are contesting the elections.
