Kadapa (AP): With campaigning for May 8
bypolls hotting up, YSR Congress chief Jagan Mohan Reddy on Saturday
said that his party would dislodge Congress government on
popular support and seek fresh mandate in one year.

"There will be elections in one year or six months
from now. Our government will come and we will implement all
the welfare schemes (initiated by late YS Rajasekhara Reddy)
effectively," said Jagan during his election campaign in
Kadapa Lok Sabha constituency.

Jagan is seeking re-election from Kadapa Lok Sabha in
the bypoll to be held on May 8.

The Congress government in the state has totally
failed to implement the welfare programmes like social
security pensions launched by Rajasekhara Reddy, he said.

The bypolls to Kadapa Lok Sabha and Pulivendula
assembly constituency were necessitated following resignations
of Jagan and his mother Vijayalakshmi respectively.

Jagan is locked in a triangular contest against
Congress and TDP candidates state health minister DL Ravindra
Reddy and Rajya Sabha MP MV Mysoora Reddy.

In Pulivendula, Jagan`s mother Vijayalakshmi is facing
her brother-in-law and Congress nominee YS Vivekananda Reddy.
