Kadapa (AP): The campaigning for the
by-polls to Kadapa Lok Sabha and Pulivendula assembly
constituencies has been stepped up with candidates of
Congress, TDP and former MP Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, who is
seeking re-election, making all-out efforts to reach out to
people.



Jagan has been campaigning actively for the last several
days, while his mother Vijayalakshmi is also canvassing for
her re-election from Pulivendula.
Former Minister Y S Vivekananda Reddy, a younger brother
of late Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, is taking on his sister-in-law
(Vijayalakshmi) in Pulivendula.



Ministers Md Ahmadulla, K Lakshmi Narayana, senior party
leader N Tulasi Reddy and others were campaigning for Health
Minister D L Ravindra Reddy, who is the Congress nominee for
Kadapa Lok Sabha seat.



"This is a contest between a highly experienced leader
(Ravindra Reddy) and a political illiterate (Jagan)," Tulasi
Reddy charged in Kadapa today.
Chief Minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy, state Congress
president D Srinivas and actor-turned-politician Chiranjeevi
would soon come here for campaigning, party sources said.



Union Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad, in-charge of party
affairs in AP, is also likely to campaign in Kadapa, the
sources claimed.



TDP Rajya Sabha member M V Mysoora Reddy, who is the
party candidate for Kadapa Lok Sabha seat, said he would file
his nomination tomorrow, the last date for filing
nominations.



Meanwhile, police today seized illegal money of Rs 6.38
lakh at Chinna Mandem village during vehicle checks. While 120
gelatin sticks were seized in an auto near Pulivendula, police
said.
