Earlier Info: The Chief Electoral Officer (CEO), Bhanwarlal said that the commission had written a letter to the Election Commission of India (ECI) for holding bye elections for Kadapa Lok Sabha and Pulivendula Assembly Constituency on December 8. The segments remain vacant after the resignations of Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy and Y.S. Vijaya Lakshmi for Kadapa and Pulivendula Constituencies respectively.
Bye elections to Kadapa and Pulivendula constituencies have to be conducted and new representatives should be elected on or before 29th May 2011. Y.S. Jagan and his mother Vijaya Lakshmi resigned on 29th November 2010 after releasing a sensational open letter written to Sonia Gandhi mentioning the woes faced by him and his family after the death of Dr. Y.S. Raja Sekhar Reddy.
It is most likely that bye elections to the two constituencies will be held sometime during May 2011. Y.S. Jagan might finish the formalities required for floating new party by that time and contest on the new symbol and party.
