Prathap Kumar Reddy (sitting MLA), former legislators Ventoru Venugopala Reddy and Vishnuvardhan Reddy, are the three aspirants for the MLA ticket of YSRCP from Kavali Assembly constituency. This is getting a lot of confusion in Kavali constituency for the YSRCP cadre as it has not yet finalized any candidate. This issue got more interesting as all three of them have been claiming that they are being given the ticket and have already started campaigning for the party.
Apart from campaigning, they are even spreading this news across social media and in the constituency. Recently Vishnuvardhan Reddy met Jagan and had requested him to give this MLA ticket to him. And it is being said that replying to this, Jagan had said that if he was not given this ticket, then he would be nominated as an MLC. Rajyasabha MP V. Prabhakar Reddy and MP Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy have been making news that the sitting MLA Prathap Reddy will be getting this ticket this time also and asking the cadre to work in his favor in that constituency. Apart from these, Venugopala Reddy tweeted stating that he s expecting this ticket this time. As the seniors are supporting Prathap Reddy as always, party cadre feels that in case cross voting occurs then the sitting MLA will be benefited. Rumors say that Vishu might join TDP if he would be denied for this ticket.
