YS Jaganmohan Reddy of YSR Congress Party holds a strong cadre in Rayalaseema region taken as a legacy from father YSR. In a shocking happening, YSRC party lost MLC election in Kadapa district as Jagan's uncle YS Vivekananda Reddy faced the defeat in the hands of TDP candidate B Tech Ravi by 33 votes. Truly speaking TDP hasn't got much strength in this territory, an unbelievable Jagan called in for an emergency party meet.
Despite managing strong majority in other areas, this is a shocking defeat. While the reasons may be many like usage of money power, Jagan is angered and is said to be very much upset.
Meanwhile, TDP candidate Shilpa Chakrapani Reddy won Kurnool MLC seat defeating YSRC candidate Gouru Venka Reddy with over 50 votes majority and TDP candidate Vakati Narayan Reddy won Nellore MLC seat against YSRC candidate Anam Vijaykumar Reddy by 87 votes.
