As both ruling TDP and opposition YSRCP are taking the election as a prestige issue, heart burn was caused to the candidates who expected seat from the constituency.  Silpa Mohan Reddy, who was determined to contest from Nandyal and was disappointed by TDP Chief Chandrababu Naidu joined YSRCP recently and was, announced the candidate from the party.

Likewise, TDP candidate Bhuma Brahmananda Reddy’s uncle, Katasani Ramireddy is in YSRCP. Former MLA from Banaganapalli, he is one of the crucial leaders in YSRCP.

The events unfolding in Nandyal are sure to create confusion in the respective parties. Silpa Chakrapanireddy who is in TDP presently, might not campaign for TDP candidate against the wishes of his brother. Sources said that because of this reason, TDP kept Silpa Chakrapanireddy away from Nandyal by-election. Chakrapanireddy, who ruled district level politics as an MLC, became silent after his brother joined YSRCP. Though he is continuing his political activities from Srisailam constituency, sources close to him argue that he can’t continue for long in Telugu Desam party opposing his brother.

On the other hand, it has to be seen if YSRCP constituency incharge and former MLA, Katasani Ramireddy would cooperate with his nephew. There were rumours that he had tried to convince Jagan to elect Brahmananda Reddy unanimously.

In this context, will the important leaders in the party give importance to relations or will they be committed to their party is the interesting aspect.
