Adding insult to injury, Jagan’s candidate Tippa Reddy won MLC elections with two votes majority in Chittur district.
Chief Minister Kiran Kumar Reddy is representing Chittur district. Interestingly, the other two heavy weights in Andhra Pradesh politics, opposition leader Nara Chandrababu Naidu and erstwhile Praja Rajyam Party chief Chiranjeevi also represent Chittur district.
It is a wakeup call for the Congress high command. The win, no doubt, a morale booster to YS Jaganmohan Reddy camp in Seema Andhra. The party cadre is already celebrating the victory.
