At least half-a-dozen Jaganmohan Reddys and three Vijayalakshmis are in the fray against YSR Congress party chief Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy and his mother, Y.S. Vijayalakshmi, in the by-polls for Kadapa Lok Sabha and Pulivendula assembly seats respectively.
YSR Congress party leader Ambati Rambabu Sunday alleged that Andhra Pradesh’s ruling Congress party has fielded the independent candidates with similar names to mislead the voters. Six independent candidates named Jaganmohan Reddy and three named Vijayalakshmi have so far filed their nominations for the May 8 by-elections. Only the initials of the candidates are different from each other.
With April 18 being the last date for filing nominations, the possibility of more Jaganmohan Reddys and Vijayalakshmis joining the fray can’t be ruled out. The independent candidates are also staking their claim to the symbols sought by Jagan and his mother.
Jagan and his mother had resigned as MP and legislator respectively and also quit the Congress party in November 2010, protesting the attempts by the party leadership to divide the family.
