Akhila Priya elected unopposed
TDP returns the favour by not contesting
Two independents withdraw
Allagadda by-election caused by Shobha’s death
Kurnool, October 24: Bhuma Akhila Priya, YSRCP candidate, was declared elected unopposed from Allagadda assembly constituency in Kurnool district.

The ruling TDP did not put up candidate in this by-election returning the favour done by YSRCP by not contesting the Nandigama by-elections which was also caused by the death of the newly elected MLA. In both the places, the daughters of deceased leaders got elected to the assembly. Six independent candidates filed their nominations along with Akhila Priya. The returning officer had rejected the nomination papers of four of them and the rest two withdrew their nominations paving way for the election without contest.
